Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1961

3-Time NCRS Top Flight Winning Corvette Roadster 283/230hp V8 Automatic /// Sealed in a traditional combination of Roman Red and Ermine White 2-stage, this Corvette sports a roster of national honors that includes three NCRS Top Flight awards. The car's smooth body was carefully restored to better-than-new condition by Impatient Creations of Alabaster, Alabama. As you can see from our high-resolution photography, that profile features great alignment, reflecting a crisp finish that contrasts a tight white top. And today, this... Chevy rolls as one fully sorted curve carver that's virtually guaranteed to captivate and impress! Tilt the hood and you'll find 283 cubic inches of smooth Chevrolet small block. Behind that mill, a smooth Powerglide 2-speed twists torque through a rebuilt GM axle that's packed with big, 3.55 gears. That drivetrain rolls in a familiar double A-arm front and solid axle rear suspension, which was professionally restored by Hillbilly Vette Shop of Kingsport, Tennessee. Standard drum brakes supplement good handling characteristics with solid and confident stops. And power meets the pavement through Roman Red steelies, which spin 6.70-15 BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewalls around traditional wheel covers. Open the doors and you'll find a seamless Red interior that's been completely rebuilt with quality Al Knoch restoration components. Seating comes courtesy of familiar vinyl thrones. From the driver's perch, a painted and padded dash hangs factory gauges, professionally rebuilt by Joe Ray Parts Co. of North Little Rock, Arkansas, between a factory heater and a requisite Wonder Bar radio. Below that dash, a polished shifter sails textured carpet. And in front of the driver, a speed-drilled steering wheel laps a polished cross-flag hub. If you're looking for a stylish classic that commands respect on both the boulevard and the show field, this fashionable Vette is just your style! Call, click or visit for more information.
