1962 Chevrolet Corvette Additional Info:

62 Corvette with custom period correct white coves that were done at great expense by arguably the best painter in Western Washington. As most would know the 1962 corvettes did not have painted coves but I found the contrast of the same color white paint used in C1s and the Roman Red a fantastic look. Engine is a pro-built 394 HP 350 (74 block) that sounds amazing (cam) and can go anywhere. Doesn't overheat, has Eklers front end, had new synchros put in this summer so it shifts great. No drips, paint is good but not show quality except for coves which are exquisite. One rebound strap needs to be replaced but that is an easy fix via parts on ebay or from the many corvette part suppliers...can get both for around $65.00, Soft top is brand new date stamped for 1962. Hard top is in very good condition. Interior shows very well, seats, carpet, etc all very good. Windows and windshield perfect, car cruises so you could drive it all day yet if compelled can push your ridcage in after 3000 RPM. Engine has less than 6k on it, speedo turned when engine was pulled and replaced per previous owner. Has original Wonderbar radio but it drops out when you hit a bump and goes back on when you hit another.Everything works but clock, not even sure it's connected right as it has a battery disconnect that I use all the time.Glad to answer any questions. Original wheels with period correct tires, comes with new extra set with new cragars. This is a 55 year old car and is sold as is but I truly recommend if interested send someone to evaluate and test drive before purchase. Corvette repair/restoration raves on how nice it drives. I have extra parts (original leaf springs, etc) that come with car if you want. All questions are welcome. SHIPPING is the responsibility of the buyer.
