1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1962 Chevrolet Corvette convertible, finished in ermine white over a red interior. This late C1 has been with its current caretaker since 2007. Under present ownership it has been a sunny day driver and regular participant in local parades and shows.

Under the hood is a crate LT1 350 cubic inch V8 that was installed under previous ownership. The engine is paired with a four-speed manual transmission that shifts smoothly and delivers ample power to the rear wheels. The engine has been recently resealed with new valve cover gaskets, front and rear main seals, and an oil pan gasket. The fuel and ignition systems have seen a recent refresh as well consisting of a carburetor rebuild, new fuel pump and lines, and full tune up. It starts up easily and runs well. Handling feels tight due to a full suspension overhaul with new springs, shocks, and bushings, in addition to a steering gear rebuild. Brakes are likewise new.

The fiberglass body is in excellent condition but the paint is older (perhaps even original) and showing patina throughout. The interior is tidy and features a set of five gauges beneath a 160-mph speedometer. Just above the gear shift are a Wonder Bar radio, heater controls, and a clock. Manual windows, door locks, and top are all operational, though the convertible top is showing some wear.

With over $10,000 of recent service work, a venerable small-block Chevy V8 power plant, and a four-speed, this early 'Vette is a solid driver that's ready to hit the ground running and provide plenty of smiles along the way.
