Description:

1961 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible


I have not yet seen another 1961 Corvette with similar factory options, low miles, matching numbers and in such pristine/unrestored condition! Only 7 convertibles were built with Ermine white exterior, Jewel blue coves, blue Interior, white soft top and white hardtop. Also, only 2,827 units were built with the 283 CI, V8 engine, 2X4 BBL Carter Carburetors, and Special Factory Cam to peak at 270 HP.

Under the same ownership for the past 30-years, no expense has been spared in the preservation of this rare beauty. All reconditioning work has been strategically planned to avoid a full-blown restoration and to encapsulate its natural state. Only essential components have been restored or replaced to ensure a healthy and safe performance. These unique marvels are becoming very desirable and increasing in value exponentially. According to Hagerty's January 2017 report, these highly collectible assets continue a strong upward trend for the 5th consecutive year, topping the chart at $124,00!
