Would You Pay This Much For A Corvette Body?

Would You Pay This Much For A Corvette Body? This isn’t exactly a budget-friendly deal ...Quite a few people love the look of a classic Chevy Corvette Stingray, and why not? The iconic lines are like nothing you find on any other vehicle around, making it a real standout among other classics. While that’s certainly true, you might be wondering why this 1966 Chevrolet Corvette convertible body is so pricey. At $18,000 for a body that no longer has the original Rally Red paint, it’s understandable why anyone would question the sanity in paying so much.

Watch: 36 Chevy Corvettes Barn Find

Watch: 36 Chevy Corvettes Barn Find The collection will be given away later this year. People have been amazed at the story of how 36 Chevrolet Corvettes, one from the 1953 to 1989 model years, were discovered hidden away in New York City. Won by a man from Long Island in a nationwide contest put on by VH1, these cars were immediately purchased by an eccentric graphic designer from NYC, then hidden away and essentially never seen again. Now that they’re public again, these ‘Vettes are worth some serious cash and they’re going to be auctioned later this summer.

Finding a well-functioning, immaculate-looking 1962 Chevrolet Corvette like this one being offered by County Corvette is always quite tempting. After all, it’s the final production year for the C1 or first generation of America’s sports car. You get those classic, understated looks, and this one features both a white soft top and a white removable hard top.

The restoration work on this car left nothing untouched, resulting in pure artwork on wheels. Both the body and chassis are original, and the seller states this car has never been wrecked. All the glass but the windshield is original, and the replacement windshield is correct in its shape. Glassworks restored the hardtop, which matches the smooth body panels perfectly. In fact, you can inspect that luscious red coat closely and not find imperfections or damage, the owner having taken excellent care of this ride after a repainting in 2009.

Unrestored Barn Find 1962 Corvette Is An NCRS Survivor Candidate

Unrestored Barn Find 1962 Corvette Is An NCRS Survivor Candidate In the right hands, this first-generation Vette could go on to do great things! The 1962 Chevrolet Corvette is the last year of the first-generation run of the Corvette. It’s also evident how much of a precursor the 1962 was for the ultra-popular Sting Ray body style that would soon follow. Not only that, it was the last year of the solid-axle Corvettes, as they would turn over into a rear-independent suspension layout in 1963 - something the Corvette has become well-known for over the decades since.

Also looking perfect is the black interior, with no rips or tears in the seat or carpeting. All the factory controls and gauges are present, as are the OE window cranks and door pulls.

Mechanically, this C1 Corvette is in solid running condition. As part of the restoration process, the engine was rebuilt with a correct .020 overbore and 340 solid lifter cam. There’s a nice 4-speed manual transmission, which was also rebuilt. A spin-on oil adapter has been added, making oil changes faster and easier, while the correct canister housing and filter are included. The original spiral shocks have been swapped for Delcos. However, the original voltage regulator is present and working. You’ll get the T3 headlights for the car, but it currently has halogens installed.

Thanks to the popularity of the Corvette, you can find quite a few 1962 C1s on the market. However, few are as original as this one, which has a nice show-stopping presentation that will pass muster with the toughest critics. The professional restoration has been thoroughly documented and receipts for the work are included in the sale. If you’re a lover of Corvettes or are just looking for a good investment car, this is a great one to consider.
