1961 Corvette Convertible, 283-315 hp, fuelie, 4 speed, numbers matching. Roman Red paint with White coves, Red interior, and White soft top. Body-off restored in show condition (very fresh!). This car was restored to impeccable standards and down to literally the last nut and bolt by a father/son team possessing over 80-years' combined experience restoring and judging 1st generation Corvettes. Notably, they undertake just one concours-level restoration project annually, allowing a level of focus and attention to detail possible in precious few restorations performed elsewhere. These type restorations normally cost between $80,000.00 to $125,000.00. Optioned with T-10 transmission, Wonderbar radio, fuel injection, aluminized exhaust, sunvisors, windshield washers, courtesy light, heater, hubcaps, and wide white radial tires. Most all factory correct type components.
