Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1961

Duntov Award Bloomington Gold Winning Corvette Roadster 283 Dual Quad V8 4 Speed /// Built to be a correct small block curve carver, this Corvette has won pretty much every accolade you can think of, including a Vette Vues Magazine Tri-Power Award, three Bloomington Gold awards, three NCRS Top Flight awards and the coveted NCRS Duntov Mark of Excellence. If you're in the market for a pedigreed rendition of America's favorite sports car, this incredible roadster could be the literal... interpretation of your next classic! This contoured Chevy's curvaceous body was massaged back to life during a thorough, body-off restoration. And today, layered in vivid Roman Red 2-stage, the car rolls as one spectacular classic that's superbly detailed. Tilt the hood and you'll find a 283 cubic inch, dual-quad V8 that proudly displays a correct 3756519 casting number. Behind that mill, a stout Borg Warner 4-speed twists torque through a correct, posi-traction rear end. Beneath that drivetrain, 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. And power meets the pavement through standard steelies, which spin fresh 6.70-15 Firestone Deluxe Champion whitewalls around traditional stainless covers. In keeping with this Vette's high performance theme, interior outfitting remains minimal. The car's textured seats still have years of life left in them. Front and center, stylish gauges, a Wonder Bar radio and controls for an optional heater look great decorating Chevrolet's famous dual-cowl dash. And the driver stays connected through a speed-drilled steering wheel and petite chrome shifter. With its correct 283, tough 4-speed and detailed restoration, this Corvette is a highly authentic classic that you can enjoy just as Duntov intended.
