1962 Corvette Pro-Street

"Multiple Magazine Cover Car"

This 1962 Corvette has an amazing history. Over the years, the evolution went from a factory original to drag racing winner and eventually to the latest incarnation that you see here.

  In August, 1985 the car was featured on the cover of Super Stock & Drag Racing Illustrated magazine as a C/Modified Production car in Gainesville, Flor
ida. With its drag racing career over the car was restored nearly as you see it here and was the featured centerfold car in the February, 1992 issue of Hot Rod magazine.

Back to the 62 Corvette. All of the original body seams have been removed. The body is nearly flawless and has been painted in PPG Mint Green. The color is carried into the interior with the seats finished in two-tone blue tweed and matching vinyl also seen in the door panels. Other touches include: Auto Meter gauges, LeCarra steering wheel. The trunk is also done in matching upholstery with an added fuel cell. The original chrome on the car is exceptional in every detail

During the racing years, the car was running 140 mph in 9.42 seconds. This performance aspect was prominent when the car was restored. A custom 2x3 frame was built to accommodate ladder bars, a narrowed Dana 60 rear with Strange axles, spool and 4.56 gears. The front suspension was retained with dropped spindles and JFZ disc brakes. The wheels are rare "Period-Correct" Halibrands.The car handles great on the road.

Tucked under the hood is a recently installed 355 small-block with Holley Aluminum Heads w/matching carb/intake package and MSD ignition. the tranmission is a TCI powerglide with a Coan eight-inch torque converter, Hurst quarter-stick and a B&M coooler. Also, the car has a new aluminum radiator and water pump. No overheating problems here. The undercarriage is highly detailed as well.

This corvette is a very well built car and it has been maintained in excellent condition since the restoration. In fact, it probably would cost nearly $100,000 to build this car in todays dollars. The reserve is well below that but is consistant with other cars of this quality. Please ask questions or better yet, come and inspect and drive this car. You will not be disappointed
