Default 1962 C1 Fuelie Duntov Top Flight















Hi all,

after not as much of a time as I would have loved, it has come to pass that we must sell our beloved C1.

First thing to note is the car is now located in the UK (right next to London Heathrow Airport) after purchasing her in Arizona a couple of years ago. Having said that, I would be only too pleased to help any interested party in the USA (or anywhere else for that matter). The car is EU taxes paid, and with the British pound at a record low, now might be the best time to consider a purchase over here.

Anyway, to the car. Below I will copy and paste an advert that I have elsewhere, but I wanted to say thank you to the forum community, whilst I may have not been a contributor much, I learned valuable things and I hope this will not be the last Corvette we have the privilege to own.

1962 Corvette C1, Fuel injected, 4 Speed, 327ci

For sale is our incredible Corvette C1

This C1 is truly special in that it is the highest scoring C1 known to be judged at the Duntov Award (the highest level of concours for Corvette) achieving 99.6, being awarded the Duntov Mark of Excellence. The car is the ideal collector piece being the dream specification of Fuel injected, 327ci, 4 speed manual and is of course fully matching numbers.

The car was restored over a 30 year period by perhaps the most enthusiastic and precise owner you might wish to find, a Mr J Wright. Mr Wright collected all the correct parts required over a considerable period of time, but crucially also collected data points and reference material to ensure each and every detail he put into the car was correct. This culminated in a 30 year project that achieved the highest awards given by the NCRS, this car has been awarded;

- Regional Performance Verification Award, September 2009 (Marlborough, MA)
- Regional Top Flight Award, January 2010 (Kissimme, FL)
- National Top Flight Award, July 2010 (Charlotte, NC)
- Duntov Mark of Excellence Award (99.6%), July 2010 (Charlotte, NC)

The judging sheets, along with a photographic record of the incredible restoration accompany the vehicle.

Since winning the highest possible awards the car, and looking after her for another couple of years, Mr Wright sold the car to a collector in Arizona. This collector placed the car inside his private garage along with other award winning cars until July 2017, when I purchased the car. Whilst in the USA, the car had been regularly ran up to temperature and serviced, but she had not been driven, preserving the restoration.

On bringing the Corvette to the UK, she was registered on UK plates, serviced and given a thorough inspection by marque specialists (who commented they have never seen a C1 of this quality). She has been driven sparingly on dry days and kept in our temperature and humidity controlled garage.

She is now ready to be passed on to another person who will recognise this significance of this particular car. Please see below for the specification;
