For Sale: 1961 Chevrolet Corvette in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars is excited to offer this Stunning 1961 Chevrolet Corvette by our Ft Lauderdale Showroom. With Corvette sales consistently increasing over the previous two model years, General Motors executives decided to review some of Mitchell's designs and made the decision to "green light" a restyling of Corvette for the 1961 model year. The most pronounced of the Corvette's changes was the introduction of a freshened rear end design. The "ducktail" design (as it has become known amongst Corvette enthusiasts) was virtually lifted from the rear of the car. The new rear end also showcased a pair of small, round taillights on each side of the license plate recess. The rear end of the car now featured a pair of small chrome bumpers that framed a third, small, chrome, "arch" bumper that wrapped around the license plate well. On the front end of the car, they redesigned the layout of the dual headlamp system, providing Corvette with a more streamlined version of the of the existing four lamp nose. Headlight bezels were no longer available in chrome, but instead were painted to match the rest of the body. Likewise, the chrome "teeth" grill was replaced with a fine wire mesh insert that was finished in argent silver. With improvements in fiberglass manufacturing combined with refined assembly processes improving the car's fit and finish, the 1961 Corvette was quickly recognized by critics and enthusiasts alike as the best built Corvette yet. This Gorgeous 1961 Chevrolet Corvette is a great example of the 1961 Corvette legacy. This most awesome Vette, is finished with the Two-Tone Exterior paint in the beautiful "Jewel Blue" with "White" coves and a matching "Jewel Blue" color interior. Indeed, the interior has been well maintained and cared for throughout the years. You won't find any rips, tears or splits in the seats or headliner. This beauty comes with both the Hard Top as well as a new White Soft Top. Under the hood is the original 283 V8 Engine backed and combined with the original 4-speed Transmission. Other options include but are not limited to: New Tires, Hub Caps, New Radiator, Am/Fm Cassette Radio, Spare Tire, Jack, Seat Belts, Wide White Wall Tires, Recent Tune-up, Oil Change and more!
