Lot #989 - Chevrolet's print advertising from the era described it best... "A test drive in a Corvette with the 327 V8 and a 4-speed box isn't a drive at all, it's an emotional experience. Pick your favorite road, fasten your seatbelt, and place your right foot on that long narrow pedal on the right. Three shifts and a quarter of a mile later you've cleared out all the cobwebs and left all your troubles, not to mention everything else on the road, behind you." The 1962 edition was the last of the first-generation Corvette models, and the numerous engineering refinements incorporated during the previous nine years made for one great car. From mild to wild, the 1962 Corvette offered almost everything. This 1962 Corvette roadster is a Roman Red, red interior trim with a striking white top. A complete frame-off restoration. This 327cid 4-speed transmission runs as good as it looks. This the first year for a 327cid engine which replaced the 283cid, last of the solid axle club cars and also last year for exposed headlights. All this said, this is a great year to start or add to your collection.
