1962 Corvette, Older Restoration, AZ Car from new, 327 cu in Four Speed!
This 1962 Corvette is great for touring and showing! This is a fully restored motorcar that was not done to be “over-restored”. This was a restoration of a car that was bought new in Arizona in July of 1962. The body is finished in resplendent Roman Red, black vinyl interior and a new white soft top. 1962 was a terrific year: it benefited from updated styling and engineering improvements and was the first year of the venerable 327 cu in V-8 with 300 HP. Just dynamite when paired with the factory four speed transmission!
The proper 327 CID V-8 engine delivers a smooth power through the optional close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. This motorcar has benefited from the addition of correct appearing whitewall steel belted radials for far superior handling, ride and safety. This Corvette is a fabulous driver, not a trailer queen. Although this would be a competitive show car in most local car shows it would not be a major concours winner; this has been restored to be a well sorted touring Vette that could also be shown with pride- something that is often rare.
Everything works as it should. It is not a numbers matching engine. The VIN is 20867S104381 and the engine number is 3958512.
This Corvette was a relatively early production car with a Nov/Dec 1961 build date. The title for this motorcar shows that this Corvette has been registered in Arizona since it was new.
More details, photos and videos will be forthcoming as we are presently preparing the car for proper presentation. The photos in the gallery and the video are before we have detailed the car. We are presently servicing the car thoroughly and will detail the undercarriage, engine compartment and the interior and exterior when we are done performing the service and repair work. For a market valuation please see the NADA value guide as follows (This is at least a High Retail condition car):
This is a rare opportunity to acquire an excellent driving 1962 Corvette. The costs to restore such a terrific car as this is far in excess of our asking price, let alone the purchase of a Arizona car to begin with!! So don’t hesitate with this one!
