Lot #155 - By 1961 General Motors owned the majority of the American automobile market. The cars were fast, sleek, comfortable and durable. In fact, it is considered by some automotive historians that the period 1960 to 1965 was the U.S. auto industry's high point. This rare Starfire Convertible may have been G.M.'s most stylish car for 1961. Only a few of the 88 Series Starfires were built in convertible form. With a 325 horsepower, 394cid V8, the cars were outstanding performers. Power steering and power brakes, power top, AM radio. This car has undergone a complete restoration.
