1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

A Nice 1962 Corvette Convertible Resto-Mod. This gorgeous car is equipped with a Chevy 350 Crate Motor with a 4-bbl carb, and Turbo 350 Automatic trans. It has logged just over 2,800 miles since completion, so the mileage is accurate from the time of restoration. Features include power rack and pinion steering – very responsive, but easy to control, disc brakes up front, the previous owner wisely added a Vintage Air AC and Heat system, which blows nice and cold, spotless red interior, lowered all the way around with 17″ Torq-Thrust II wheels, Momo steering wheel (buttons not connected to anything), new convertible top, AM/FM Cassette player. Chrome and glass is in excellent shape. The paint is excellent. There may be a tiny nick or ding here or there as the car is a driver, not a trailer queen.  The undercarriage and clean with no rust. I have owned this care for 3-1/2 years. It is an absolute blast to drive and hugs the road like a go-kart. The repro interior is absolutely spotless. The original top has been replaced with one of much thicker and more sturdy material. A waterproof car cover is included with the car.

1961 Corvette

A Spectacular 1961 Tuxedo Black Corvette with red interior.

The 1961 Chevrolet Corvette featured a major redesign…but you might not know it until one passed you by since the big updates were out back. GM replaced the curvaceous rear end that had been in place since 1953 with the “tail lift” or “duck tail” rear end that would largely carry over to the C2 Corvette in 1963. The exhaust outlets were also moved underneath the rear end from the previously integrated exit pipes. In addition to effectively laying the foundation for the rear end of the upcoming C2 Stingray, the tail of the new 1961 car set the tradition of four taillights in the Corvette.

Up front, the changes were far more subtle, with a billet-look grille replacing the “teeth” grille from the previous years. The twin headlight banks that flanked the new badging now featured body-colored frames, replacing the chrome headlight surrounds from past years.

Engine options largely carried over from 1960 with fuel injected models. The base engine continued to put out 230 hp, but output for the “fuelies” increased to 275 hp and 315 hp for the top end model, which incorporated high-lift cams.

Aluminum radiators now came as standard equipment and featured a crossflow design. Some early 1961 Corvettes still had the copper radiator, so check under the hood before you buy. The 4-speed manual now had an aluminum case, and the transmission tunnel for all 1961Chevy Corvettes was narrowed by 20 percent to provide more interior space.

General Motors built 10,939 Chevrolet Corvettes for the 1961 model year, making it the second most common model year of the C1.
