Vehicle Description

Show or go! This fresh well sorted roadster comes with a set of bias ply wide white wall tires with spinner caps and modern radial tires on sporty aluminum wheels. She is beautifully and correctly finished and detailed for show. 

This car’s original 315 horse power Rochester fuel injection C1 is what the era was all about – style, performance, and global competition.

Style - There just isn’t a more eye-catching period car and this unit represents the last production year where Vettes came with contrasting coves, highlighted by stainless trim.

Performance – This unit is powered by the largest most powerful Corvette engine available for 1961.

Competition – In the global race against sports cars of every make and model, this extra-powered C1 Corvette earned its way on the track and along every by-way to be coveted then and a global icon today. Cars with power windows, like this example, enjoyed a slight weight savings over their roll-up window brethren.

This C1 needs nothing but an adoring home.  Well, not quite; this fuelie needs to be driven and enjoyed.  Just turn the key and listen as she roars to life. Like all fuelies, she has a special diet. She rewards those who properly feed and attend to her with exhilarating performance. We will fill you in on how to fill her up.

Put this C1 on your “must have” list and call today to get into all the details and to discuss the particulars as you arrange your thorough pre-purchase inspection.  We often Skype with buyers so they can get to know each car well before its physical inspection.  Take the first step to ownership, call us today.
