This 1961 Corvette has recently gone through a restoration of the
engine and drivetrain. The 350ci motor runs and looks great. New
brakes, suspension, and a rebuilt driveshaft allow for a smooth
drive. The 4-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly and the car
has a new clutch.
The red and black exterior is a great color combination and plays well with the white wall tires on traditional Corvette rims. The new, black convertible top goes up easily and has no damage. The interior matches the exterior well and is also in very good condition. The included pictures of the undercarriage show just how clean and freshly rebuilt this Corvette is.
