MIRA test report for 1962 Corvette


We don’t normally take an unpaid adverts from non-members but this is something rather unusual and may be of significant interest perhaps to one of members who owns a 1962 Corvette. It is a MIRA report for a 1962 Corvette. The current owner John Hopkins looking to part with it, kindly approached us and hopes that one of our members will make him an offer for it. He recently sold a similar report for a Porsche for £45.

John says - “I have owned this report since 1972. I was a Smiths Industries apprentice at the time and lots of stuff was going in the skip around back then, but for some reason I kept this”.
It was published in July 1962 and is the report of buying the car, testing it at Mira and subsequently taking it apart to fully examine it. The document is 52 pages long, the attached pictures should give an idea of what is included. John is keen that it goes to an owner of a car or a club that will appreciate it”

John lives in Aberdeen and can be contacted on hopkins108 @ btinternet.com
