Have you ever wanted a fuel-injected 1962 Corvette?
Here’s your chance to get a barn find example of the last year of the C1, though we’re inclined to believe this one might be a bit overpriced at the “Buy It Now” price on eBay of $59,900.
This is definitely one that you’d want to have your Corvette expert along when you looked at the car because the seller, while offering to be as helpful as he can, admits he isn’t a “vette guru!!!!!!”
There’s not a lot of information in the eBay ad. What we do know about the car is that it’s a barn find from Oregon (with 1974 Oregon plates still showing) and was an original red/red fuelie, big-brake car before being changed to yellow/black at some point. The odometer’s showing 42,599 miles, though we don’t know if that’s accurate. There’s also some body work that has already been done above the wheels, possibly to remove flares, but overall the body looks in pretty good shape as much as you can tell from photos. One of the photos shows several parts lying on the floor, so apparently they’re included in the sale price.
The car apparently has been moved to Greer, S.C., where it’s for sale.
We found several restored examples on Used Corvettes for Sale that ranged from $79,000 all the way up to $130,000, meaning that at $59,900 you might have some room to make the necessary restoration repairs.
If you’re in the market for a used fuelie, you probably could do worse than this one. Of course, we’d recommend getting it for far less than that “Buy It Now” price because after all it wouldn’t be a restoration without some kind of unexpected hit to the pocketbook, would it?
