1962 Corvette Project

 

1962 Corvette Project 

 NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Original engine 250hp 4 speed. Hardtop and Soft top. Running, driving car but needs engine work, paint, interior & frame work to make roadworthy. Frame has heavy rust in the rear crossmember and left rear wheel arch. Left front had a prior hit and left top fender crack at the bond to the top of the firewall.

Other than these areas I have seen original panels with no evidence of bodywork. The body is quite straight, and doors, trunk and hood line up and close properly.

Very nice front bumpers included, along with top fender stainless(needs backplates), front bumperettes and brackets, and front center grille.
