Here is a beautiful ’61 Corvette Roadster C1. It is Roman red with white cloves. It was repainted in its original colors 25 years ago but shines as if new. The soft top was replaced in 2001. The 1961 model year is recognized for the debut of the iconic quad tail lights and the boat-tail design for which the subsequent C2 became known. It was the last year for contrasting paint colors in the cove areas and the last year for the 283 cu. in. engine with dual-four barrel carburetors. The brakes, break hoses and brake lines, wheel cylinders, master cylinder, tie rods, shocks and gas tank were restored to factory original. It has the correct 270 hp two four barrel carburetors, 4 speed transmission, posi-traction rear end, Wonderbar am radio, chrome spark plug wire shields, GM hoses & tagging. It has four new Coker radial white wall tires. There is no indication of accidents or replacement of body panels. After a museum status restoration the car was stored in a controlled temperature showroom. The car has had no issues, before or after purchase and is 100% drivable and dependable.
