This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette underwent a meticulous restoration in 2015, which involved redoing the exterior in an elegant black hue paired with matching black vinyl interior. The car is driven by a replacement 327 cubic inch V8 engine, augmented with a Rochester mechanical fuel-injection system. Key features include a four-speed manual gearbox, a detachable hardtop, a black soft top, Torq Thrust-style 15″ wheels, power windows, and a cassette stereo. The current owner acquired this vehicle in 2018, and subsequent maintenance has reportedly included overhauling the differential and the fuel-injection unit. This C1 Corvette is now available with the owner’s manual, service records, and a clean Ohio title in the seller’s name.

During the 2015 refurbishment, the car was finished in black with coordinating coves and features a matching removable hardtop as well as a black soft top. Other notable elements include quad headlights and polished bumpers and trim.

The Torq Thrust-style 15″ wheels are fitted with 225/70 BFGoodrich white-letter tires. Braking power is supplied by four-wheel drum brakes.

Inside, the two bucket seats are clad in black vinyl. The interior equipment includes a dash-mounted rearview mirror, power windows, a heater, a cassette stereo, and an analog clock.

The three-spoke steering wheel frames a 160-mph speedometer and a tachometer, along with gauges for coolant temperature, amperage, oil pressure, and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows 28,000 miles, approximately 10,000 of which were added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.

The replacement 327 cubic inch V8 engine is topped with a Rochester mechanical fuel-injection unit that was overhauled in 2020, according to the seller. Details include Corvette-script finned valve covers and a chrome ignition cover. The Rochester fuel injection unit displays part number 7017360, which corresponds to a unit produced for a 1962 Corvette.

Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission and a Positraction limited-slip differential, the latter of which was rebuilt in 2019.
