‘Red Hills Rods & Classics’ is very proud to offer you this absolutely stunning 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Resto-Mod! This Corvette is absolutely gorgeous folks! She underwent a no-expense spared restoration/build of the highest order and the final results are simply breath-taking. This 1962 Corvette Convertible wasn’t just built to look absolutely amazing, but also to exhibit heart-pounding performance in every way. Let’s just say that they hit a home-run on this one!
Finished in the beautiful shade of Satin Silver wrapped around a gorgeous Red Leather interior, this car is pure eye-candy! The Satin Silver paint is in beautiful condition throughout w/ no distractions whatsoever. All of the trim, bumpers, grille, windshield frame, rocker moldings, headlight/taillight bezels, mirrors, door handles, license plate frame, etc., were finished in matte black, which really give this car a truly ominous appearance. This Corvette comes w/ both tops, including the original silver hardtop, and a red power soft-top which is activated by a switch in the center console, as well as on the key fob. She has a perfect stance, and sits on 18” black Rocket Attack wheels wrapped w/ Pirelli Classic Redline radial tires (235/50/ZR18). You can walk around this Corvette a hundred times and she looks absolutely perfect from every angle.
Open the driver’s door and you will find a gorgeous custom red leather interior by Al Knoch, featuring red leather bucket seats, complete red leather dash, Dakota Digital analog dash gauge system, Billet Specialties steering wheel wrapped in red leather, Vintage air conditioning, AM/FM/Bluetooth Retro Radio, black door sill plates, black automatic shifter console w/ ashtray, black door release knobs, black window cranks, fresh red loop carpeting throughout w/ matching floor mats, and two sets of black seat belts. This interior is not only beautiful, but it is fully functional in every way. The trunk area is also completely finished w/ red panels all around and matching red carpeting.
Now, let’s get to the heart of this beast, shall we?
Pop-open the hood and the first thing that you will notice is the beautiful metal work that was done all around the ultra-clean engine bay, which houses the Chevrolet Performance LT4 Supercharged 6.2L crate engine. This is the same vaunted Supercharged LT4 that is found in the C7 Z06 Corvettes, which produces a staggering 650hp w/ 650 Ft. Lbs./Torque. This is an immense amount of power & torque for a Corvette that weights in @ around 2,900 pounds! The LT4 motor is linked to a new GM 8L90E 8-speed automatic transmission, which feeds power to the Corvette C7 rear end. It was vital that this Corvette handle the way that it should, especially w/ all of that horsepower under the hood, so please look closely at the detailed undercarriage photos. Features include: all new frame, coil-over front shocks, Kugel independent rear suspension, Wilwood 4-wheel power disc brakes including in-board rear brakes, C7 positraction rear-end w/ 3.90 gear ratio, full custom stainless-steel exhaust system, and much more! She fires up instantly, settling into a nice smooth idle, and she runs, drives and performs beautifully in every way. She also sounds absolutely amazing, producing a mean deep rumble. As you can imagine, this ’62 Corvette Resto-Mod is an absolute blast to drive and will get more attention than you have ever had in your life! Anywhere that you decide to drive this Corvette, there will be a crowd gathered around instantly, snapping photos on their smartphones. This was an expensive and time-consuming build, and again, I believe that they simply hit a home run on this one!
If you have been searching for a vintage Corvette that will win ‘First Place’ awards @ any national-level car event that you decide to enter, but can also be driven and enjoyed to the fullest, you will want to take a very close look at this absolutely gorgeous 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Resto-Mod!
