Harry's Thoughts

This is a wonderful fully restored '62 Corvette that is an investment grade example. You can drive it, show it and enjoy it. Meanwhile, this is a classic that will be better than money in the bank! And much more fun!

THE ESSENTIALS

SALE Pending to Connecticut!!  This is a beautiful 1962 Corvette that is an investment grade restored example that can be driven and enjoyed, shown or held as an investment.  Benefitting from an NCRS guided restoration in 2007, this Corvette has benefitted from a few important upgrades which make it safer to drive and enjoy.  This is a Corvette that can be displayed at concours events or driven on weekends.

The present owner acquired this Corvette from West Coast Corvettes as a numbers matching, 327 cid 340 hp engine featuring solid lifters and its original Borg Warner T-10 four-speed manual transmission.  But beyond those important features, this Corvette has positraction and Wonderbar radio and has benefitted from a complete frame-up restoration.  The present owner purchased it from California, where it had been long registered and was represented as a yellow plate CA car.   This Corvette is fully serviced and really needs nothing to be enjoyed!

The livery is in Roman Red with excellent shine and polish.  Likely far better than the original finished, the paint is beautiful and is consistent with the rest of the car.  The chrome and stainless are show quality.  There are several areas where there are the normal small cracks in the fiberglass which we have shown in the photo gallery with 140 photos on our website.  The radial tires have a small white wall and look great with the wheel covers.  The Corvette comes with an as-new white Al Knoch convertible top that is properly date coded.

The interior is beautiful in Red vinyl also provided by Al Knoch.  The interior overall is in concours condition.  The driver’s seat bottom cushion shows a little time-worn impact on the seams, not from wear but from time.  This is limited to the driver’s seat bottom cushion and is barely noticeable.  The chrome and rest of the dashboard is in overall very good to excellent condition.  The instruments work as they should.  The carpet is in excellent condition and has Corvette branded matching mats.

The engine compartment is in beautiful, detailed condition.  It would pass most concours judging, not quite NCRS National standards but really nice in every respect.  The Corvette has benefited from several upgrades to make it much safer to use.  Front disc brakes, dual master brake cylinders, seat belts, battery cut-off switch, radial tires, aluminum radiator, etc.  The chassis is also in excellent detailed condition.

This Corvette comes complete with a nice recent service history from the last ten years of ownership from its present owner, an Owner’s Manual and a car cover.

We have this Corvette priced at a bargain.  The Hagerty Value for this 327/340 Corvette with four speed is:  No. 2 is $107,370 with the 10% premium for the four-speed and $1,000 for the Wonderbar radio.  This is one to seriously consider and is sure to increase in value over time.  We are offering this Corvette at a nearly $30,000 savings!

For more information and details, call, text or email Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or harry@classicpromenade.com.  See our 140 photos and three videos on our website to learn more.  This Corvette is available for viewing at our Phoenix showroom.  We are pleased to offer FaceTime or WhatsApp live video inspections and we help coordinate shipping worldwide.  We also have financing partners if you are interested in financing.

Interesting Fact: The Chevy Corvette has been in production for over 60 years and eight design generations have been created. Executives decided on the name “Corvette” by comparing it to the small maneuverable warship. This vehicle is also widely known as “America’s Sports Car” and is one of the most popular vehicles in history. This vehicle has always been offered in either a 2-door coupé or convertible. Over the years, different engines have been used ranging from 5.7-liter LT1 V8’s to 6.2-litre LT5 supercharged V8’s. Today, the standard Chevy Corvette uses a 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 that gives the car 495 horsepower and a 0 to 60 acceleration of just 2.8 seconds. Notable variants of the base Chevy Corvette have been produced over the years, such as the Stingray and Z06. In the early 1970s, GM president Ed Cole was convinced to provide three NASA astronauts with new Corvettes, and this led to a long-standing unofficial tie between the companies. The Chevy Corvette is still one of the highest-performing vehicles in production and is a dream car for many!
