Yes, a classic like this gets us excited, too. The 1962 Chevrolet Corvette closed the book on the first generation with some unique features, and a hot 327 small block. So you know this is perfect all-American sports car to be respected everywhere and drive anywhere.Red Corvettes are so iconic that you might be asked to lead every 4th of July parade in this one. But it takes more than just great legacy for a presentation this nice. You can tell there was the right investment in paint by the way it highlights the well-creased curves of the C1. When the sunlight rolls over the glossy red, you get a deeper appreciation for the coves in the sides and flowing fenders. Plus, it also showcases all the things we love about these later C1s, like the quad headlights, sleeker hood, and ducktail rear that ushered in the era of the C2's and the four round taillights. The Corvette had evolved into a much more serious machine by '62, and so while you still get those great wraparound chrome bumpers that made these cars famous, the factory replaced its toothy grin up front with a blacked-out grille that wants to consume lesser roadsters.The white convertible top nicely coordinates with the tires to make this one look good with the roof on. But the real reason to have a first-gen Corvette like this is to cruise around with the wind in your hair. That's why you've got a bold interior to really show off wherever you show up. Besides, there's just something about a red convertible with a red interior that makes you want to always go for a drive almost like a matador urging you to be bullish about the road ahead. The dual cowl dash is the focal point inside, so it's always great to see it looking this nice. While the big speedometer is always a fun feature, we also love seeing a functioning tachometer on a manual transmission car like this one. Because you'll want to be cruising with the top down for as long as possible, it's always nice to know the heater is in good working order so you can still enjoy this roadster on a crisp fall Sunday drive.From the first glance, it's hard to see the upgrades in the motor. The 327 cubic-inch small block is the correct displacement for '62, and this looks great with the mirror-like air topper and Corvette scrip valve covers. But take a closer look, and you discover desirable upgrades like Holley Double Pumper four-barrel carburetor, and an aluminum radiator to keep it running cool. Plus, the headers add even more power as they feed the rumbling dual exhaust. But best of all, the full fury and soundtrack of this enhanced V8 is in your hands thanks to the control of the four-speed manual transmission.Strong, fast, and iconic, there's a reason why a final-year C1 all dressed in red is a dream car for many of us. So if you want this classic Corvette to be yours, you're going to want to hurry
