Lot #1276 - Black with fawn interior, 360hp Fuel Injected Corvette. 2 tops, hardtop is un-restored, with less than 1,000 miles since it received a nut and bolt, frame-off restoration to exacting standards. Owned by the same family for 35 years, it is rare and real. 100% correct matching number drivetrain that has never lost an originality point in any of the judging events. The recipient of multiple NCRS awards including three Regional Top Flight awards with scores of 98.1 in 2003, 97.8 in 2005 and 98.1 in 2005. The receipt of a Performance Verification award in 2004 on the first attempt, a feat seldom accomplished. The final Top Flight score of 98.3 at a National earned this vehicle and the owner a coveted NCRS Duntov Mark of Excellence award in 2005. It has also received Bloomington Gold certification recently. Recognized by all that have inspected and judged it as an over the top restoration, with most of the judging point deductions the result of over restoration. This vehicle was best in class at Forrest Grove Concours d'Elegance and top three post war at the same show. It was in the Portland roadster show and won best in class, best in show restored and money. The car has never been shown that it did not win best in class and usually best in show. It is one spectacular piece, a very rare factory color combination. One of the best of the best, a 1962 Fuel Injected Corvette, a rare color combination and a spectacular restoration, recognized by all the organizations that judge these cars with presentation of their highest awards.
