1961 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Original paint, Same owner since '76
Chevrolet's Corvette debuted in 1953 and has since been a trademark in the sports car industry. The first generation Corvette ran until 1962, with the later year first generations receiving a facelift with four front headlights and are considered one of most beautiful Corvette's ever produced. This white and blue two tone roadster is no exception. And what makes this Corvette extra special is that our client and current owner purchased the car in 1976 with just 32k original miles. Furthermore, the paint is all original.
Longstanding ownership and original paint make this car extremely rare, a true survivor. Before our client purchased the car, the original motor was replaced with a period 283 V8 and the transmission was upgraded to a 1966 2-speed powerglide. Other than that, the car remains 100% original, including a rare removable white hardtop and original Wonderbar radio. Other noteworthy features include a black soft top, split chrome bumpers, analog clock, floor shifter, and blue vinyl interior. The car runs and drives exceptionally well and would make an excellent parade car, cruise-in car shower, or even an LS swap pro-tourer. Your choice.
Our client purchased this car at the age of 21 and held onto it through marriage and kids. That's a testament to how much he loved the car and how he cared for it. Find another C1 with original paint and the same owner for over 40 years. They just aren't out there. Be sure to see all the photos and walk-around video of the car running on our main website: Garage Kept Motors.
