Finest, Fiercest yet…’62 Corvette By Chevrolet
Corvette has never been a car to rest on its laurels, an your first clue to the Corvette surprise for ’62 is the car’s clean swept, uncluttered styling, for many people, the change of face might have sufficed, but not for Chevy engineers. They’ve given the Corvette a new 327-cubic-inch V8 that’ll give you a belt-in-the-back like nothing you ever drove. This new standard engine, with a single four-barrel carburetor, has 250 bhp at 4400 and produces 35 pounds-feet of torque t 2800. With the 1962 Fuel Injection* engine you get a whopping 360 horsepower at 6000! This is performance to please the wildest wind-in-the-face sports car type. We could have devoted this space to a treatise on Corvette’s styling and luxurious interior, but we’d be letting a great car down…This new engine’s the thing, and you’ll know it the instant you plant your foot on that load- pedal!
