1962 Chevy Belair Convertible , metalic maroon, 3 speed on the column


Asked by Nov 29, 2014 at 09:24 AM about the 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air

Question type: General

I owned a 1962 Chevy Belair Convertible , metalic maroon, in 1970. However, I can not
find any references that confirm there was a 1962 Belair Convertible. But I absolutely
know that is what I owned. Does anyone have an answer to this?

For 1962, all sheetmetal except the door panels was changed. Overall length was stretched slightly to 209.6 in (5,320 mm). The 4-door Sport Hardtop was no longer offered in the Bel Air series. Standard engines remained the same as the previous year. A new 327 cu in (5,360 cc) V8 of 250 or 300 hp (220 kW) was offered in addition to the giant (for the time) 409 cu in (6,700 cc) V8 of 380 hp (280 kW) or 409 hp (305 kW) with the dual four-barrel carburetor setup. All wagons this year were 4-door models and separate distinctions for wagons were dropped. Now all models were either Biscayne, Bel Air or Impala series. Full carpeting returned as standard equipment on all 1962 Bel Air models for the first time in several years. The Bel Air Sport Coupe was in its last year of U.S. production, and its roofline was a carryover from the 1961 hardtop coupe.

If it was the original color on the car it would be, 948 - Honduras Maroon Metallic.


Thanks, but my question is this. I can only find references and specifications for 1962 IMPALA convertibles. I can't find any records for a 1962 BelAir Convertible. But, I know that is what I owned in 1969/1970. What I am looking for is some record or documentation that Chevy produced this BelAir convertible in 1962.
