Description:

1961 Chevrolet Corvette ROADSTER V8, 4 SPEED BOTH TOPS

1961 CHEVROLET CORVETTE CONVERTIBLE, BOTH TOPS, NOM 283-4 WITH 1964 CE CASTING NUMBER. # 3959532....283...64......2...USED FOR SOME "CE" REPLACMENT BLOCKS

NOM FACTORY MUNCIE FOUR SPEED, # 3925661 POE06B

NOT ORIGINAL BUT WORKING AM/FM RADIO WITH REAR MOUNTED POWER ANTENNA, SEAT BELTS, HEATER, NON OP WINDSHIELD WASHERS, POWER STEERING USING LATER MODEL COMPONENTS, IT WORKS NICE, ALL OF THE BRAKING SYSTEM HAS BEEN REBUILT IN THE LAST YEAR, ALSO THE CLUTCH WAS REBUILT, IT ALL WORKS NICE.

THE ENGINE RUNS GOOD WITH PROPER POWER, BUT IS A LITTLE SMOKEY AFTER GETTING UP TO RUNNING TEMP AND UNDER EXCELLERATION, NOT SURE OF THE ISSUE, IT DOES RUN OUT FINE. MAY NEED VALVE SEALS OR REBUILD.

THE INTERIOR IS ORIGINAL AND SHOWS WEAR FOR THE AGE, ALL INSTRUMENTATION WORKS CORRECTLY, EVEN THE OLD FACTORY TACHOMETER, COKER CLASSIC WIDE WHITE RADIALS, DUAL EXHAUST WITH MELLOW TONE MUFFLERS.

THE CHASSIS ON THIS CORVETTE IS RUST AND PATCH FREE, IT'S GOT WHAT I CALL "GREAT BONES" NO WEAKNESS IN ANY AREA, LIFE LONG CAROLINA VETTE THAT WAS WITH THE SAME FAMILY FOR THE PAST 35 YEARS, IT'S NOT ONE THAT HAS BEEN ON THE MARKET EVERY YEAR OR TWO CHANGING HANDS.

THE BODY IS REAL GOOD FOR THE AGE, IT HAS ONLY ONE BREAK IN THE DRIVER FENDER TYPICAL SPOT FOR ONE OF THESE, I SEE NO SEPARATION OF BONDING STRIPS. I THINK IT'S A FACTORY WHITE CORVETTE WITH NO COVE COLORS.

IF YOU WANTED TO DO SOME TOUCH UP AND NOT RESTORE THE ENTIRE BODY, FIX THE DRIVERS FENDER, PASS SIDE HEADLIGHT RING, AND REPAINT THE HOOD FROM SCRATCHES, SINCE IT'S WHITE I THINK IT'S A EASY FIX, OR DRIVE IT LIKE I HAVE AND GET COMMENTS ON IT'S ORIGINAL CONDITION.

IT HAS BEEN REPAINTED MANY YEARS AGO, THE SIDE STAINLESS IS EXCELLENT, BUMPERS ARE SHINY BUT HAVE SOME FADING.
MILES SHOW 52,000 AND APPEAR TO BE CORRECT BASED ON GENERAL WEAR AREAS.
FRONT WINDSHIELD IS REPLACEMENT FROM LONG AGO.

THE INTERIOR IS ORIGINAL AND DRIVERS SEAT IS LACKING PADDING, DASH PAD IS GOOD, DOOR PANELS ARE NICE.

THE HARD TOP IS ALL GOOD, BUT HAS CRACK IN THE BACK GLASS AREA AND FRACTURE MARKS IN ONE SIDE PANEL. IT COMES WITH THE DEAL.
THE CANVAS TOP NEEDS WORK HAS SOME HOLES, THE FRAME IS SOLID AND RUST FREE, GOES UP AND DOWN NO PROBLEM.

THIS CORVETTE WILL MAKE FOR A FUN SUMMER CRUISER, IT COULD BE BROUGHT TO A HIGHER LEVEL, BUT SINCE IT'S NOT MATCHING NUMBERS, GO AND HAVE FUN WITH IT. SOME OF THE REAL NICE ONES JUST SIT ON THE SHOW GROUNDS WORRYING THE OWNERS IF A BUG LANDS ON THE BODY.
CLEAR TITLE IN HAND
NO TRADES

I WELCOME INSPECTIONS, OR COME IN PERSON TO EVALUATE.
