1961 saw updated styling touches to the Corvette as it began its
journey from the C1 to C2 body style. With new, more aggressive,
rear styling, including redesigned bumper and taillights and a fine
mesh front grill, the car took a bold new step forward. The '61
Corvette revealed the boat tail styling that would be the hallmark
of the C2 models to be released two-years later. The final year of
contrasting paint colors in the body coves of the corvette, this
would be the last two-tone Corvette offered until the release of
the 25th Anniversary Edition in 1978.
This Top-Flight NCRS 1961 Corvette is, without any hesitation, one
of the finest total frame-off C1 restorations on the market today.
Beginning with a matching-numbers 283 245hp motor with dual-quads,
tied to a Powerglide automatic transmission, this Corvette is one
of only 242 built with such a configuration in 1961. The engine and
transmission were professionally rebuilt during the restoration,
with every item under the hood being replaced or rebuilt to NCRS
specifications. The exterior was professionally painted in DuPont
Chroma Base Black for the body with Nevada Silver for the coves.
The body and paintwork on this vehicle far beyond expectation. The
Al Knock Interior of the vehicle sets of what is the finest
interior of any '61 on the market today. From the Wonderbar Radio
throughout the dash, each piece of the interior is in like-new
condition. This is, without any doubt, the finest matching numbers
'61 currently being offered for sale.
Unless stated otherwise, vehicle mileage on title is exempt and
unknown if original.
