1962 Chevrolet Corvette C1 327/340 4-Speed
This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette convertible is finished in red over red vinyl and powered by a numbers-matching 327ci V8 paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Features include a white convertible top, 15″ wheels with whitewall tires, four-wheel drum brakes, chrome bumpers, a dual-exit exhaust, rubber floor mats, and a Wonderbar AM radio.
A partial body repaint in red included repainting the hood and headlight surrounds along with portions of the front fenders and passenger rear fender. Chrome trim adorns the split-bumpers, windshield trim, license plate surround, driver-side mirror, door handles, and front grille. Additional features include a white soft top, quad headlights, faux fender vents, and a dual-exit exhaust. The soft top shows discoloration and is torn, and images taken during the paint process can be referenced in the image gallery below.
Steel 15″ wheels wear spinner-style covers and bias-ply whitewall tires. The car is equipped with drum brakes on all four corners, and work reportedly completed in 2020 includes replacing the brake linings, drums, and front brake lines.The cabin is trimmed in red vinyl upholstery with a matching dashboard, door panels, and carpets. Equipment includes manually-operated windows, a dash-mounted rearview mirror, an analog clock, rubber floor mats, and a Wonderbar AM radio.
The engine block stamping lists number 109479, which matches the last six digits shown on the body VIN tag.
