1962 Corvette Fuelie Convertible
Roman Roman Red exterior, Red interior, White convertible top. 360hp 327ci engine, 4 speed manual transmission. This car has an original 1962 Fuelie engine with correct stampings, although it is not the original engine that came in the car. However, this engine has been balanced and blueprinted, with very few miles having been put on it after this work was completed. A nearly identical Roman Red 1962 Fuelie with the less desirable standard Black interior sold at Barrett-Jackson in January 2009 for $148,500 -- we are offering this car to you at nearly a third of that price!! Although the fuel is currently delivered via a 4 barrel Holley carb and Edelbrock Performer intake, an original Fuelie setup is included to turn this car back to stock if desired. Tons of receipts for parts will be included; according to said receipts, this car was painted in 1996, and has probably not been driven much since, as the paint is overall very good with an excellent shine and just a few small touch-ups. Front chrome has a great shine and no rust or dings. Rear chrome is excellent with no apparent flaws. Stainless trim looks mostly original and is in overall very good condition. Door handles are in overall very good condition as well. Original hubcaps and wheels are present; hubcaps are in very good shape with no visible dings or rust, and have been nicely polished. Tires are Firestone whitewalls, and appear to be bias-ply. All 4 headlights are correct T3 units. Date coded glass appears to be correct and original. Weatherstripping appears newer and is soft and pliable. Although it is older, the convertible top still looks great with no tears or rips. Interior shows very well with the newer seat covers having no tears or rips; dash pad is also excellent, as are the door panels. Carpet is correct loop style and looks newer. Gauges are good with very minor fading; clock is not working at this time. Steering wheel is excellent and shiny, and in very nice original condition with no cracks. The frame on this car is extremely solid and rust-free as well. Engine compartment of this car is nicely detailed, and shows correct fuel injection exhaust manifolds, correct hose clamps, and the correct position for the washer fluid reservoir in a fuel injection car, which also appears intact. Ignition shielding is not currently installed, but is included with the fuel injection setup. Current VIN was issued by the state of Kansas in 1980, which we have documentation for, as well as a copy of a title from 1978 stating the original VIN. Also included is a list of previous owners (some with phone numbers) and a written history of the car, as well as the original owner's manual, original Chevrolet shop manual, and several other manuals and guides to the fuel injection setup. Photos of the refinishing of the body as well as the engine rebuild will be included also. Original options on this car include 4 speed manual transmission, 3.55 posi rear-end, heater, and Wonderbar AM radio.
