1962 Chevrolet Corvette Big Brake Fuelie Tanker

1962 was the final year for the C1 Corvette, even though it really doesn’t resemble the 1953 launch model. The design had changed, but the underlying bits were all the same (solid axle and 102″ wheelbase). For 1962 there were four all-new engine combinations. This one has the top-of-the-line fuel-injected 5.4-liter V8 (327) making 360 horsepower. It was the only “Fuelie” Corvette engine available in 1962.

But that’s just where this special car starts – as you could probably tell from all of the superlatives attached to the name above. This car also received special order large wheels and heavy duty brakes and suspension. Furthermore, it has the very rare 24-gallon fuel tank. Only 65 cars were ordered with the fuel tank option in total, much less everything else it has on it. Tuxedo black with a red interior, this car might not be one-of-a-kind, but its darned close.

It’s a multiple award winner. Only 1,918 of 14,531 1962 Corvettes had fuel-injection. Only 561 had the 15×5.5-inch wheels. Just 246 are big brake cars. It’s a rare car and an excellent example at that. It isn’t going to be cheap. Check out more about it here and more from Mecum in Florida here.
