Default Tall Man 6'5" in 1962 Corvette, Possible?

Hi everyone. Glad to join this forum.

Since I was young I have always dreamt of owning 62 and now I have an opportunity financially to go look for one. I have driven in several 80s models up to the most recent but never in a C1.

I stand about 6'5" and weigh about 260lbs. I realize it’s a sports car and fit will be a bit tight, but I want to know if driving a 62 is possible? Or completely out of the question?

If you know of any related articles, or temporary modifications without ruining the vehicle, please let me know? Or better yet pictures of a tall guy, or if you are a tall guy, have pictures in one? That would be great.

Let me know your thoughts. Thanks so much. Merry Christmas.

C1 Vettes are uncomfortable for tall guys..... Two things cause this... C1s have a LARGE steering wheel and the seat lies close to the floor making it hard to bend your knees! If you aredriving just short distances you may be ok.... Good Luck.
