Description:

1961 Chevrolet Corvette

1961 Corvette. Car was in storage and fire collapsed material onto car, the fire did not originate from the car. Car was restored to show condition prior to damage shown. True mileage unknown.Chrome appears to be all show quality. Original 2x4 BBL. 4 speed, power windows. I believe it was originally Fawn Beige in color. I chose not to primer anything so you can actually see car's condition. Now has crate engine with few miles. Starts, runs, great. Brakes work. Sounds great, drivable, but should be trailered or flat bedded. Convertible top frame is good, soft top should be replaced, but usable as it is.The dash sustained the brunt of the damage,I have replacement pieces to use for repair. Needs windshield glass.Will need main wiring harness at the least.The car has a CLEAR title, registered in my name. I have the original engine block with numbers that match vin number. This information will be given to winning bidder only.The engine block had a crack and shows repair that was done by a reputable machine shop and needs cosmetic finish work, but it is the original block. I have accumulated most of the parts that were damagedto finish the car, many of which were quite expensive. You will see most of them in the photos: kick panels, door panels, package tray support, trunk emblem, side view mirror, rear view mirror, ashtray, carpets, package tray and trim, speedometer and tachometer cables, seat frames and working seat tracks, seat covers, steering wheel with hub, horn button, center fiberglass console for radio and clock, glove box, armrests, sun visors, wonderbar radio, speaker, speaker screen, speaker bezel, owners manual, emergency brake and hood release assembly, lower steering column cover, crankshaft, pistons, lifters, etc., cam shaft, pedal covers, upper dash fiberglass, front of windshield fiberglass, upper console trim, lower console trim, seat belts, directional signal housing, directional signal lever, wiper arms and blades, chrome wiper bezels, small door access plate, distributor cover, complete instrument cluster, head light switch, lighter socket, glove box door, glove box door stainless, shifter console, shifter boot, 4 speed indicator plate, courtesy light housing, misc. attaching screws, dash insert, grab bar, etc.The trans is a T-10 4 speed.
