Celebrate the final year of the C1 in style.


The 1962 model year was the final year of the C1 Corvette, marking the end of an amazing introductory run for America’s sports car. There’s no better way to celebrate the capping off of such an accomplishment than to bid on this 1962 Chevrolet Corvette which is on the virtual auction block right now on Proxibid. Having been the subject of an extensive restoration, this is a beauty of a car anyone would be envious of.

An Ermine White body with sparkling chrome trim makes for a clean, classy presentation. Even though this car is shown with the body-color removable hardtop installed, there is a convertible soft top on the car, so if you’re out cruising and need coverage on the go it’s available.

According to the seller, this C1 ‘Vette has been “exceptionally restored to original.” Judging from the details of the exterior, including badging, wheels, etc. that certainly appears to be true. Same goes for the red interior, which sports the factory gauges, steering wheel, controls, rearview mirror, window cranks, and more.

Finding a Powerglide automatic ’62 Corvette isn’t easy, so that makes this car more compelling for those who don’t want to manage three pedals and a shifter. It also comes with the 327ci V8 for nice, smooth power delivery and plenty of fun times on the road.

Even though 1962 was the most popular model year for the C1 Corvette, these cars are highly collectible and a lot of fun to take out for a weekend drive. Everyone recognizes the iconic shape and owning such a classic is a huge conversation starter at gas stations, traffic lights, and pretty much anywhere else.

This 1962 Chevy Corvette is open for bids right now. It’s part of the Sam’s Auto – A Lifetime Collection, which represents the impressive array of vehicles accumulated by Sam Menkin of Cheyenne, Wyoming.
