This '62 Vetter already has traveled 60,000 miles since new, but the car appears to be in overall good condition and well maintained.

1962 was the final year for the first-generation Chevrolet Corvette C1. However, in 1961, the rear end of the Vette was completely redesigned with the addition of the ducktail. At the same time, the now iconic four round taillight setup was also introduced.

Fun fact, this taillight setup would continue to be used by all following model year Corvettes until 2014. Additionally, 1962 was also the final year for the wraparound windshield, solid rear axle, and convertible-only body style.

This red on red Corvette Tanker comes from the Davis collection and the vehicle is still registered under the original owner's name. 

Power for this '62 Vette is provided by a 327 cubic-inch, 5.4-liter V8 which produces 340-horsepower. The engine sends the power to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission.
