Default 62 Corvette 327-360 Refresh

I am embarking on a little side project among everything else that is going on in the shop as of late.

I bought this fuel injected, 2 top, 62 Corvette, T-10 4 speed. The car has what looks to me it's original short block. Correctly dated T10 transmission (non original) and it's original positraction rear end housing (currently a non numbers 3.36 center section). The car retains it's original body panels, nice rust free frame, and most all original interior.

The car ran when I got it, not not well. I sent the F.I. unit out to find the spill valve was the major culprit of it's issues. I'll be doing some cleaning, light detailing, tuning, etc. I'll bomb this around for a while yet this summer as I am Covetteless at the moment (and not doing well with it)

Here are some teaser pics.......

And the most important question was, "will you take $$$$$ and Tim's cash register when CA-CHING...
You have first rights on them ???
I was wondering how you financed 5 new vehicles..

That's a very pretty car, Tim. I wanted to see the yellow '65 when I was at Road America in July, but Steve didn't bring it up to the races. He put some crappy Ferrari in the Saturday Concourse instead of the '65 Corvette.
