This very striking 1962 Corvette Roadster is finished in it’s original color of Roman Red with Red interior.

1962 was a milestone year for Corvette, the first year for the 327 V8, the last year for the solid rear axle. It was the last year a Corvette had a trunk until 1998 and the last year the headlights were exposed until 2005.

This is a rare example of an unrestored, road ready Corvette roadster.

Original 327/300 hp. motor.

A numbers correct example.

Over flow tank Date 61 K 1961, Oct.
Engine Suffix RD 300HP 4 speed manual.

The chassis is rust free and straight, the floor pans are unpainted.

The paint has a great luster, great panel alignment and a nice even color consistency. The chrome looks good to excellent, again unrestored. In certain light you can see some slight color difference on the nose of the car.

The interior is as nice as it gets, with the only new items being the carpet and a recently replaced soft top, otherwise an unrestored interior.

The original 327/300hp engine runs great and the 4 speed shifts smoothly. Sound clutch. Starts easily cold or warm.

Stock suspension.

The car has a great vintage road feel when driving with no wandering or pulling.

Drum brakes front and rear. No leaks. Firm pedal.

Wheels are stock and correct for the car. “Spinner” wheel covers are in excellent condition. Period Fisk classic matching tires.

Trunk compartment is excellent with the original mat and no spare.

This car has a Wonderbar radio with a new power antenna installed. Correct manual antenna included. Heater, radio, lights, gauges and signals all work properly.

Purchased in Las Vegas, NV nearly four years ago by the current owner, the car has remained in the Las Vegas area until just recently being offer for sale.

Unrestored examples are increasingly difficult to locate compared to their restored counterparts and as a result have become more popular in the collector car market.

If you have been thinking about acquiring a first generation Corvette for your collection, consider this great original example.
