VERY NICE, 350 V8, TH350 AUTO, HARD TOP, SLICK BLACK, NICE INTERIOR, DRIVES GR8!
The 1961 Chevrolet Corvette roadster is a true favorite among fans because it has the best of everything. This is when the first-generation styling really came together in one of the coolest packages around. So, when this fantastic presentation comes together with an enhanced V8 heart, you know this is the classic to own.
For a lot of us, the 1961 Corvette is the right year 'Vette to have. The contrasting colored cove is just a start of the fun Chevrolet designers had years ago. Four headlights up front made it even more desireable, as the roadsters dropped the awkward styling touches like the ribbed hood and fussy chrome details of previous years. The most important improvement is out back. The sleek rear end was new for this year, and its four-taillight design set the standard that is still being followed over a half-century later. While a red Corvette is beautiful, we bet this color combo is what made you first stop and look at this C1. It has been resprayed with a rare two-tone Tuxedo Black with Inca Silver inserts. It's a distinctive way to show off the uniform fit of the body without losing the period-correct feel. Of course, the thing that you will really be attracted to is that all the hard to find brightwork is still present on this one, and it still sparkles with a fantastic shine. Plus, fresh whitewall tires on full wheel covers are the perfect cap off to the period-correct feeling of this first generation 'Vette.
While this one comes with a matching hardtop to give your classic C1 a curvy-coupe-like presentation, we really know that your favorite days will be the ones with the top off. Red interiors always look amazing on black cars, and the Corvette also just seems to get that right. The black waterfall in-between the bucket seats, and the dual color weave of the carpeting, create a perfectly blended package. The full gauges are in beautiful condition and are quite possibly original, which says a lot about this car's quality. Plus, the upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo is always a nice addition to get the best music. The steering wheel looks awesome in red, too, and its ridges have that great thin, grippy feel that only came on the right cars of this era. Plus, the cue ball on top of the three-speed automatic transmission is a great place to rest your hand. Because you'll want to be cruising with the top off for as long as possible, it's always nice to know the heater is in good working order. That way you can still enjoy this roadster on a crisp fall Sunday drive.
When you open the hood, you see all the right elements that you love. This includes the large original chrome air topper, ram's horn exhaust manifolds, and the Corvette cursive valve covers. But if you take a closer look, this V8 has been upgraded to a larger 350 cubic-inch block and a performance Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. That means a younger V8 is under the hood, a TH350 three speed automatic for extra cruising speeds, and it even gives a little extra growl out of the dual exhaust – that's why this one is even more fun with the top off!
This is the Corvette that's perfect for the car shows, but it also has all the right features that will make you skip a few events because you're having too much fun driving it. A total package classic like this won't wait for long, call today!
