Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1961

Just in time for summer - perfect roadster for both short cruises and long road trips! This 1961 Corvette (number 27 off the line) is a one of a kind blend of classic and modern. No expense or detail was spared in this $200k+ professional body off restomod that strived to maintain the original look of this C1 while incorporating modern reliability. performance. and comfort. A quick walk around the outside of the car showcases a beautiful 7 layer crystal red tint coat. white coves. and white soft top with a look true to original. The only telltale deviation from circa 1961 is the custom Borla exhaust under the rear bumper. Following the exhaust through the custom shorty headers you’ll find a 430 HP LS3 chromed to the nines with covers painted to match. A Kiesler 5-speed manual transmission and posi are a great complement to the power plant. A Jim Meyer Racing independent front suspension with disc brakes provide upgraded handling and stopping for this little rocket. The interior maintains the classic beauty and simplicity of the era while blending in modern comforts. Restored gauges. Wonderbar radio. and quartz clock maintain the original look and feel of the interior. Custom leather seats and Vintage Air provide a comfortable ride. A custom fiberglass center console provides a home to the power window controls. small storage compartment. phone tray. and cup holder for longer drives. A bluetooth enabled Alpine receiver hidden away in the glove box provides tunes when an alternative to the exhaust notes is preferred. A matching leather dash and trunk round out the detailed interior. Finally. a K40 with all the trimmings provides additional peace of mind for heavier footed drivers. On site inspections are welcome.
