1961 Chevrolet Corvette

NCRS Top Flight Awarded Frame Off Restored 283/270hp Dual Quad V8 4 speed ///
This Top Flight Chevy's curvaceous body was massaged back to life during a thorough, body-off restoration that was completed roughly five years ago. Judging by the looks of the car's smooth profile, there's no evidence it has ever seen any kind of catastrophic damage. And today, layered in a rich combination of Tuxedo Black and Sateen Silver 2-stage, it rolls as one spectacular classic that's superbly detailed. Tilt this roadster's glossy hood and you'll find a 283 cubic inch, dual-quad V8 that was professionally rebuilt by Hampton Engines, Limited of Westhampton Beach, New York. Behind that motor, a stout Borg Warner 4-speed twists torque through a correct rear end that was professionally rebuilt by Gevo's Rears and Gears of Seneca Falls, New York. At the ends of the floors, a fully restored double A-arm front and solid axle rear suspension has been completely returned to factory specifications. At the corners of the car, standard drum brakes complement good handling characteristics with solid and confident stops. Exhaust is managed by big, true-dual pipes, which span a U-shaped crossover and factory replacement mufflers. And power meets the pavement through standard steelies, which spin fresh 6.70-15 BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewalls around traditional stainless covers. Between the car's doors, textured seats still have years of life left in them. Front and center, stylish, retro gauges and a requisite Wonder Bar radio look great decorating Chevrolet's famous dual-cowl dash. At the middle of the floor, a petite chrome shifter is as handsome as it is stylish. And the driver spins a speed-drilled steering wheel. Combining high quality restoration with acute detailing, this investment grade Corvette is one of the best classics money can buy! Call, click or visit for your chance to enjoy an American legend!
