This Corvette was produced in January, 1961 at the St. Louis factory. Sold originally in New York. While the early history of this car is unknown, it made its way to the west coast and was restored around 2000. Driven approximately 2,000 miles since completion. Recently refreshed, it presents beautifully, runs great and is ready to go.
Rebuilt 283/270 V8 with dual 4 barrel carbs. Runs smooth and strong with no smoke or issues. Plenty of power and FAST. 4-speed manual transmission shifts crisply. Brakes stop the car smooth and straight. Exhaust and shocks were replaced. Coker Classic wide whitewall radial tires. Please see video of the engine running.
Laser straight body. Excellent panel fit and finish. Repainted in original Roman Red with Ermine White coves. A knockout combination. Bumpers appear to be bright original chrome that presents nicely. White hardtop and soft top in excellent condition. Please see photos.
Interior was redone at the time of restoration. Excellent Roman Red upholstery and trim. All gauges work. Heater was re-cored and rebuilt. Later radio installed. Original unrestored Wonderbar radio comes with the car. Trunk nicely finished. Jack and spare. Clean undercarriage.
