Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1962

You're looking at a car that has no equal. This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette is the kind of restomod that takes the ionic style and adds everything you could want. So while you're marveling at the performance of a modern LS6 V8 with a fully independent suspension, and enjoying the comfort of leather-clad interior, you'll also be winning awards in a unique build that has been customized over every inch.
Honduras Maroon is a 1962 Corvette color, and it reflects the sportiness of red, but with a deeper sophistication. That sets the tone perfectly for this car. The body and paint were a big task by Undercover Restoration. They took the time to get the panels looking terrific, and ultra-high gloss finish makes this car look like it was placed in a form-fitting glass case. Like any good 1960s machine there was also plenty of brightwork. Everything from the intricate form-fitting split bumpers, to the delicate trim that runs the full-length of the front fender - it all has the mirror-like quality of serious investment. In fact, the moment you drive it out of our showroom, you'll be putting significant new miles on this ultra-fresh build. All the details are award worthy and correct, right down to the color-marched hardtop. The only place on the exterior that really gives away this custom build's performance secret are the C6 Corvette ZR1 chrome wheels. Not only do they add distinction, but also the upgrade also allows for proper modern performance tires.
A car this cool on the outside is going to wow you on the interior, too. The two-tone gray is a full custom package from the masters at Al Knoch Interiors. The upgraded leather seats fit so perfectly between the C1's iconic waterfall tonneau, but those modern buckets will hold you better than anything out of the '60s ever could. There's a true attention to detail where the supple materials also have vibrant red stitching to match the exterior and dash. It creates a striking and uniform package that lets you know this custom 'Vette could win awards on the interior alone. And more than just look fantastic, there are plenty of great upgrades like power windows and a Rain Gear wiper system. You'll love the driver-oriented setup where the classic-looking steering wheel is really a sporty small diameter unit. It features power steer and is mounted on Ididit tilt column. The Dakota Digital gauges gives you crisp dials for everything. And have you counted the gears on the Hurst shifter yet?
You won't be able to resist lifting the hood everywhere you park. Just like the rest of this custom build, you're looking at a heavy investment in creating a superior package. So while there's nearly four decades between this C1 Corvette and a C5 Z06, the fuel-injected LS6 V8 looks like it has been here since day one. Besides just looking great, you're going to love driving this one. There are thoughtful features, like the custom aluminum fuel tank and thick aluminum radiator w/electric fan. The C5's T56 six-speed manual transmission was added, too, so it's a trusted pairing to give you firm control over this V8 upgrade. Out on the road, this handles like no C1 that you know. The custom chassis adds a level of stiffness these Corvette never had. Plus, the fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes take this first-generation car and bring it in line with some of the most modern Corvettes out there. And you might want to take some real time to look over all of this in the undercarriage photos. This ultra-clean and color-matched presentation is an instant reminder of the all-around quality and how fresh this is.
The sale comes complete with a car cover, manuals, service books, and restoration photos. There is a different caliber of custom car, and this is the kind of upper-echelon machine you can put a mirror under at any show. It usually takes a lifetime to get a car looking like this, but if you're lucky enough, the ultimate Corvette could be yours tomorrow. Call today!!!
