The most significant changes for the 1962 Corvette, however, took place under the hood. The 283 CI V-8 was replaced with a new, larger 327 CI version of the venerable Chevrolet small-block V-8. Its bore was enlarged from 3.875 inches to an even 4 inches, and the stroke was lengthened one-quarter inch to 3.25 inches. The engine featured a forged steel crankshaft and an improved induction system, along with a modified intake manifold, larger valves and a 10.5:1 compression ratio. The base engine used a Carter WCFB 4-barrel carburetor and developed 250 HP at 4,400 RPM, with 350 lb-ft of torque at 2,800 RPM.
