1961 Chevrolet Corvette
Gorgeous 1961 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Custom has had a ground up restoration. The 1961 Corvettes were technically still part of the first generation of "C1" or first-generation. In 1961 Corvette featured a major redesign. The new sleek flowing body lines have made this one of the most desirable and collectable of all Corvette years. Truly breathtaking!
First restored in 2013 that included framework, drive train, and body & paint. Just finished as of 2020 is new interior, power steering, rack and pinion, front disc brakes, exhaust, soft top, electronic ignition, upgrade alternator, and sound system. Yes, all New!
The chassis and undercarriage are in incredible condition with no rust anywhere...super clean. Upgrades that contribute to an exceptional driving experience include Martz Rack and pinion steering with front disc brakes. Thanks to a new front end build this classic has the feel of a new car. Power steering and brakes are a must have for todays driving. The entire suspension system has been refreshed. That means everything looks great and it all works. It's about enjoying the experience!
Masterfully crafted red and white paint is a showstopper. Exterior trim and bright work are all in exceptionally good order with excellent chrome bumpers and bright body trim. All new glass is spotless. The new Al Knock canvas black top is first class. Only the best for this beauty.
The new black leather interior with red stitching is soft and classy as it comes. The door panels have been treated with chrome accent panels that shine like a mirror. One look at the dash and the new 15" steering wheel and you'll be hooked. All gauges including tach have been restored and respond accurately. What is cruising without a new stereo.
Immaculately detailed engine compartment has a Year One crate ZZ4 350ci with a 5,900-rpm max/STPPrq 440.3Clb-ft/STPPwr CHp m404.5....nice! The 700R Stage 1 (450LB-FT) automatic overdrive transmission has a performance trans cooler. The shifter by Shift-Works (#SW280-R) is made to look like a manual includes the 4-speed mounting plate. The new electronic ignition by Street Fire HEI distributor and 100 AMP alternator gives all the fire power you'll ever need. The new ceramic coated headers and 2.5" exhaust have a deep rumble that is demanded by any true muscle car enthuses. Music to the ears!
New 17" American Racing Salt Flat Polished wheels (VN511) and performance radial tires. Give the perfect look and stance. Look at the new tri-bar clear glass headlights. These new headlights are up to 50% brighter than the stock yellow glow lights. Safety and style all-in-one. All the work is documented and an impressive stack of invoices come with.
