Yellow & Red

4 Speed
Engine:
327 small block V8
Title Condition:
Clear

For sale in our Chicago showroom is this beautiful 1962 Chevrolet Corvette. Powered by a 327 small block V8 with only 376 miles since new, this is a true “must-see.” Given the nickname “Cherry Smash” this Corvette has won national shows, been on the cover of magazines, and has been completely customized from top to bottom, inside and out. Starting with the 327 having been completely gone through and prepared for boost via the 4-71 Cragar supercharger blasting out an estimated 600+ horsepower. Being that this ‘Vette was never destined for the streets, the alternator was removed to eliminate as much parasitic drag from the engine as possible.
Lots of Corvettes have big horsepower claims, but none of them have looks on par with this 1975 ISCA show winner. With a painted frame, chrome front straight axle, and custom veluer wrapped interior, including the roll cage, this Corvette just oozes style and is loaded with secret changes and upgrades from your standard ’62 model. The front rims are still wrapped in perior correct Stahl tires, while a fresher set of rear slicks have been installed for safety.
The 4-speed trans shifts like butter and is eager to be wound out and hammered ingo gear. The blower puts out the distinct whine that only a roots-style supercharger can deliver bringing a vintage sound to match the sights and smells of unburnt fuel and candy-metallic paint. This Corvette is full disco and is a true survivor of the glory days of drag racing and car shows. Options include: Manual Convertible Top, Seat belts, and Racing Wheels. [ omitted ]. [ omitted ]. .
