Lot #1062 1961 CHEVROLET CORVETTE CUSTOM CONVERTIBLE
Lot #1062 - This California car, with original Black Plates, has been completely restored and modernized inside and out with no detail left untouched. Drivetrain has been updated with modern technology including a 2012 LS3 engine with a March Performance pulley system and Sanderson headers, DeWitt custom aluminum radiator, a Tremec 5-speed transmission, C4 front suspension, Chris Alston 4-link rear suspension with coilovers, C4 brakes with hydro-boost, Flaming River steering column with power rack & pinion steering, American Racing wheels and a Rock Valley custom made aluminum fuel tank. In addition, the frame has been modified to provide for an unbelievably low ride height. The height you see is the actual ride height, no bags. Those aer 20"x10" in the rear and 18"x8.5" in the front. The interior has been equally meticulously modernized with Classic Instrument gauges, Classic Auto Air conditioning, Pioneer sound system, custom suede and leather seats, dash and door panels and custom carpet on the floor and in the trunk. The condition of the body is exceptional. The rear wheel wells have been tubbed to allow for the 10" wheels and all else has remained original. The paint and chrome are show quality. This is a one-of-a-kind '61 that provides a high performance and exceptional driving experience with that classic C1 Corvette look.
