Description

Lot #505 - This outstanding 1961 283cid/230hp Corvette you see here has just been through a comprehensive, total restoration with no regard to cost and the goal of quality and authenticity. It is second to none. The previous owner, who directed this restoration, owned this car for many years and knew it to be a completely original, un-damaged, absolute all numbers matching car that deserved this level of attention. While his intention was to ultimately show this car competitively, he also demanded the car be 100% mechanically sound and offer the same rewarding driving experience one would have enjoyed in 1961. A look underneath reveals a highly detailed chassis and driveline that shows how fresh this restoration is, having just been finished in April of this year. It was finished in the rare original color of Jewel Blue with matching blue interior. This is one of the finest early Corvettes you will ever see and ready to be enjoyed by the next discriminating owner.
