Description

Lot #1561.1 - You are viewing a frame-off restored 1961 Corvette convertible. The body was stripped to bare glass, sealed and painted red with white coves. All of the trim, chrome, grille, and glass are in excellent condition. Wide white wall poly glass tires are mounted on all 4 corners with the correct hubcaps. The white softtop has been replaced and works excellent. The overall exterior is in show condition. The red interior has also been restored with new upholstery, door panels and carpet. You will notice this is the automatic version of the 61 corvette. The small block Chevy engine under the hood runs excellent. The block has been changed but the heads and intake remain correct. The detail in this engine compartment is evident. The shifting duties are taken care of by the Powerglide automatic transmission with its floor shifter. The rear differential is original to the car and operates excellent. The entire suspension was restored at the time of the frame-off restoration. The brake system was also completely rebuilt. This is a great Corvette to cruise the boulevard.
