1962 Corvette 4 Speed Fuelie w/ Both Tops!

Listing No.: 50536
Model: 1962 Chevrolet Corvette
Price: $114,555

This beautiful 1962 Corvette is finished in red over a matching red interior and powered by a fuel-injected 327ci V8 mated to a four-speed manual transmission. The equipment includes a white convertible top, a body-color removable hardtop, 15” wheels with factory covers, and a Wonderbar push-button AM radio. The upholstery was correctly replaced along with the carpeting. The balance of the interior appears to be largely original. The car was acquired by the current owner three years ago. After purchasing it, the new owner took care of a list of minor repairs totaling over $20,000, including a rebuild of the original T10 transmission, wiring updates, replacement of the front stabilizer bar, bushings, and links, replacement with correct rear leaf springs, and brake service. This 62 Corvette also includes steel 15” wheels with factory bright covers shod with Firestone Deluxe Champion whitewall tires that were installed in 2021. At that time the brakes were serviced, and rear leaf springs were replaced. The original interior is in excellent condition, showing only minor wear consistent with a well maintained survivor. The three-spoke steering wheel frames a 160-mph speedometer, a 7,000 rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, amperage, and oil pressure. The fuel and temperature gauges were rebuilt by the current owner and the fuel sending unit was replaced. The five-digit odometer shows 57k miles, and true mileage is unknown. However, given the condition of the undercarriage, a case could be made that the mileage on the odometer is original. The undercarriage components appear to be correct. And with the exception of the items noted in this narrative, there is no evidence of modifications, and the parts present themselves as OEM, including the leaf springs which have been replaced. Nothing stands out as an aftermarket part. The stamping on the engine pad shows engine suffix “RF” indicating it is a fuel-injected 327ci/360 horsepower engine with a hi-lift camshaft mated with a manual transmission. The fiberglass bodywork is finished in red and has one known repaint under previous ownership. The Corvette is equipped with a white convertible top, and a body-color hardtop is included in the sale. The front parking lights were replaced under current ownership along with the rear wiring harness. Close-up photos of the paint, trim, and lenses are shown in the gallery. Amenities included are: a push-button Wonderbar AM radio, analog clock, cigarette lighter, lap belts, a dash-mounted rearview mirror, a replacement wiper motor switch and slide actuator, and rubber floor mats. The 1962 Corvette 327ci V8 was rated at 360 horsepower when new and received a top-end rebuild by Just Corvettes of Northfield, Illinois, in March 2021. The Rochester fuel injection unit was also overhauled at that time. Invoice copies are contained in the gallery. Additional work was performed, including replacement of the ignition harness and battery, re-coring the radiator, and installation of new ignition components, belts, hoses, and fluids. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Borg Warner T-10 four-speed manual transmission that was overhauled in September 2021. The exhaust system was replaced under previous ownership. Additional undercarriage images are shown in the gallery. Overall, this is an exceptionally well cared for, and well maintained, ’62 fuel injected Corvette. It’s located in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and available for inspection by appointment. If you like what you see and read, you will like this car.
