Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale is proud to present this absolutely stunning 1961 Chevrolet Corvette, in Sateen Silver and white, on red. C1 Corvettes are some of the coolest ever built- with an abundance of chrome inside and out, fine detail, great care in craftmanship, and a wide range of engine options. They are not just cars- they are works of art. And like this one, you even have the convenience of a spacious trunk. This 1961 Chevrolet Corvette is among the first generation of the Corvette sports cars produced by Chevrolet, produced from 1953 through 1962. This magnificent example received a thorough restoration resulting in the gleaming true sports car we see today- a faithful, accurate restoration and sweet reminder of the days when every kid wanted to be a cowboy or an astronaut, and John F. Kennedy was newly elected to the Presidency. Outside and in, the quality and finishes are just beautiful, certainly a car to be proud of. This investment-grade Corvette is worth stepping up to. A lesser example will disappoint. The engine bay looks like a picture right out of a vintage 60's Hot Rod Magazine vintage road test. This one has the optional 283ci V8, 245hp Engine with two 4 barrel carburetors- and back in the day, anyone having go-fast stuff like "dual quads" or fuel injection was envied or worshipped. And there's nothing quite like a pair of 4-barrels screaming as you fast-approach the redline. Try as it did, Ford's Thunderbird just could not capture the same marketplace Chevrolet's mighty Corvette could- and so year by year, Thunderbird drifted in another direction. Corvette earned the attention of car enthusiasts around the world as a street and track champion, with no direct U.S. competitors. It gave much higher priced foreign rivals a helluva run for their money- and with the drop dead good looks, sealed its place in history forever.
