1962 Chevrolet Corvette -- Description

Frame Off Restored Corvette Roadster L84 Fuelie 327/360hp V8 4 Speed /// With only 1,918 cars equipped with the legendary L84 327, this classy Corvette mixes a 360 horsepower Chevrolet small block with a row-it-yourself 4-speed. And, as the beneficiary of a comprehensive, body-off restoration, it presents with authenticity, and drives every bit as good as it looks! Leaving GM's St. Louis assembly line in May of 1962, this sophisticated Vette wears a silky coat of Fawn Beige paint. That... pigment presents as it should – even and lustrous without crossing the line into over-restored territory. Panel fitment is true to factory standards and, overall, the car makes a great first impression. Tilt the hood and you'll find a hot L84 small block that utilizes a high-lift cam, Double Hump Heads and Rochester fuel injection to twist stout 11.25 to 1 compression into 360 horsepower. Behind that mill, an original Borg Warner 4-speed powers a posi-traction axle and big, 3.73 gears. The driving experience is a direct one thanks to manual steering and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes, which are surprisingly effective at the bringing the car to a quick halt. And at the corners, 15-inch wheels spin full covers inside 6.70-15 BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewalls. Between the doors, this Corvette conveys a distinctly upmarket feel thanks to a matching Fawn interior. Vinyl bucket seats are firm and supportive. A short shifter is framed by an original looking shift plate. The dash is an attractive jet-age carry over with a dramatic speedometer backing small accessory gauges and a prominent tachometer. Corvettes are always special cars, and rarities like this timeless roadster run that appeal right through the roof! Call, click or visit for more information on this cool C1!
