1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Matching Numbers Project Car.
For sale is this 62 Corvette 327/250hp Powerglide car. Matching numbers original Ermine White/Red interior car. Hardtop only car. One of the most complete cars I have ever seen. The only thing missing from what I have found is the jack, the ignition side shields and the air intake
tube, which is common. This is an incredibly complete and solid car that deserves to be back on the road. I immediately tore into it and started going through it. Here is a complete list of what I have now done and/or verified: Verified engine casting No.

It has rust scale, but I have thoroughly checked and tapped around this frame front to back and side to side with a pick hammer to verify it is solid.
There is about a 3 inch hole on the rear cross member at the very edge of the frame boxing on the passenger side but thats it. I had planned on pulling the motor and trans to send them out to be rebuilt and pull the body off the frame. I was going to blast and paint the frame and replace/rebuild all suspension components, bushings, rubber components and brake and fuel lines at that time, mount the motor trans then remount/paint the body. Interior is in really good shape but I would replace the seat vinyl and carpet. If a person wanted to you could put a matching 250hp carb and intake manifold on the car.
They are reasonably priced for this car. I think the 300hp stuff is an acceptable upgrade, as is the aluminum 340 hp Corvette Valve covers the car has as well. Great, complete and rare car that deserves to be back on the road. Clean clear title.
