Bloomington Gold Certification, NCRS Top Flight honors and a Chevy Vettefest
Gold Spinner Award culminated in this 1962 Chevrolet Corvette winning the
prized Triple Crown Award. Previously owned by a National Corvette Restorers
Society judge, it is one of a mere 246, 1961 Corvettes produced with the RPO
687 Heavy Duty Brakes and Special Steering option package, part of a comprehensive
range of performance enhancements established by de facto Corvette Chief
Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov through the heat of real-world competition. The
Big Brake option was first offered in 1957 as RPO 684, labeled as Heavy Duty
Racing Suspension. Development had begun much earlier as Corvette began
establishing a winning reputation in SCCA competition, but the real advances
came during fevered preparation for the Sebring 12 Hours race in March 1956.
When Arkus-Duntov himself raced a Corvette mule around the Sebring circuit
in February while waiting for the weather to clear for what would become his
150 MPH record run at Daytona, the tracks rough surface revealed pronounced
inadequacies in suspension and brake durability. Several heavy-duty pieces
were introduced in time for the Sebring 12 Hours, when Corvette took its first
class win in FIA competition. By the time of the Nassau Trophy races in December
1956, the so-called Big Brake package was finalized. It included heavier front
coil springs, five-leaf instead of four-leaf rear springs, a larger front sway bar,
stiffer shocks, a quick-steering adapter, transversely finned brake drums with
ventilated backing plates fitted with scoops over screened openings, internal
cooling fans and special Cerametalix linings. Increasing displacement to 327 CI
in the 1962 Corvette maximized the small-block V-8s potential, especially in
this Rochester fuel-injected version with 360 HP. Finished in black with a black
auxiliary hardtop and black interior, and equipped with the requisite 4-speed
and this examples 4.11 Positraction rear end as well, this was the hottest Corvette
offered to the public to that time.
