Description
Lot #744 - The car featured here is an original 315 horsepower, four speed, positraction, Southern California car. It was restored by noted California Corvette expert Charlie Bacon approximately 2,500 miles ago. It has been judged twice since the restoration, scoring NCRS TOP FLITE on both occasions. The most recent judging was in March of 2003. The scoring sheets are available for viewing with the car. Not a trailer queen, the car drove the Coast Route One from Los Angeles to the Corvette Tribute in Monterey in 2002. It is fully sorted and ready for more judging or driving pleasure. Two sets of tires, one original type for show and a set of Coker wide white radials are offered with the car."One of the most remarkable marriages of touring comfort and violent performance we have ever enjoyed, especially at the price" Sports Car Illustrated,1961. Chevrolet made 10,939 Corvettes in the 61 model year. Horse power ranged from 230,245,270,275 to the ultimate fuel injected 315 horsepower, 283 cubic inch engine. Quarter mile times were listed by SCI at 14.2 seconds and 0-60 took 5.5 seconds. Approximately fourteen hundred of these high horsepower fuelies were made. 1961 was the first year to showcase the "Boat Tail" rear end with four tail lights. It was also the last year that featured the contrasting cove color and 283 cubic inch engine. Dr Dick Thompson won the SCCA Class B production driving a 1961 Corvette that year.
