General Motors designer Harley Earl is credited with convincing GM to build a two-seat sports car for the American market.

Launched in 1953, the resulting Chevrolet Corvette quickly earned the mantle of “America’s Sport’s Car”.

1962 was the final year of the original “C1” series of cars and is considered by many experts to mark a high point in the 52-year history of the model.

The 1962 model represents the "Best of Both Worlds." Not only was it the last Corvette based upon the original sports car platform and the last of the straight axle cars, but it was equipped with the newly-available 327 ci engine and the 283 ci was retired. The Chevrolet 327 ci engine is credited by many as being the best small block V8 ever made.

The front of the car continued the twin headlight treatment as per the evolution of the C1 series, whereas the rear introduced the “StingRay” look that would be carried through on the car right through until 1967 in the C2 series.

The cars were offered in solid colours only, the grill was blacked out and the chrome around the trims was removed. For the first time, seat belts were standard equipment and it was the last year of the useful external trunk and exposed headlights.

The 1962 Corvette was the ideal combination of brawn and beauty.


This is an outstanding example of this marque in immaculate condition.

Finished in beautiful Tuxedo Black, the paint has a mirror finish and has been treated to modern day ceramic coating.

A number’s matching car, it is powered by its original Chevy 327ci V8 that produces 250 HP. The engine is coupled to the car’s original Muncie 4 speed manual transmission with Hurst shifter.

Power is good, manual shift crisp and exhaust note just as it should be.

Sitting on 15” original steel wheels with new Cooper whitewall radial tyres and spinner-style covers this vehicle has a new white soft top, new springs and shackles, front disc and rear drum brakes, electronic ignition, LED headlamps and original Wonderbar push button radio.

The gauge cluster is backlit with LEDs and all gauges and electrics work. The seats, interior and chrome are all in outstanding condition.

Quality first generation C1 Corvettes are now extremely rare in Australia and becoming very hard to find in the US where prices continue to soar.
