Description
Lot #1279.1 - 340hp/327 cu. In. V8 (rpo 396), t10 four-speed manual transmission (rpo 685), coil springs and shocks with positraction rear end (rpo 675) and four wheel hydraulic drum brakes. The first series cars (1953-1955) introduced the corvette to america, the second series, launched in 1956, earned corvette the title as america's sports car. The clean good looks of harley earl's new body struck a chord with the american public. However, most of the appeal came from under the hood. The v8 had been introduced in 1955 at 162hp, by 1962 the engine options ranged from 230hp all the way up to 340hp for the non-fuel injected examples. The example offered here features a matching numbers 327cid/340hp powerplant (rpo 396) mated to the desirable four-speed manual transmission (rpo 685). Finished in the correct roman red lacquer paint and fitted with a black interior, this roadster was the recipient of a two year restoration that left nothing to chance. All of the brightwork was fully restored including the chrome door posts and windshields, while a new stainless steel exhaust system with the correct 2.5" exhaust manifolds was installed. Mechanically, is in excellent overall condition and appears authentic in every respect. This matching numbers car is complete with the correct dual point tach drive, distributor, intake and non-seam valve covers, working wonder bar radio (rpo 102) and window washers. This lovely example will provide miles of fun as america's sports car.
