1962: Last of the C1 Corvette

1962 Corvette
1962 Corvette trim brightwork 1962 Corvette Cove
Although it might not be obvious, there were a lot of changes in the cove area for the 1962 Corvette. The lip that bordered the coves was part of the fiberglass, not a separate trim piece as in previous years. Without the trim brightwork, it was not possible to offer the coves in a contrasting color. Above left: The simulated vent with three small spears featured in 1961 was replaced by a separate trim item.

Benoist:

For 1962 there was an optional rear axle, RPO code 303, no extra charge. The ratio was 3.08:1. There was also a positraction rear axle, RPO code 675, cast was $43.05. 14,232 1962 Corvettes had the positraction rear axle.
