GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1961 Chevrolet Corvette for your consideration. This Corvette is finished in Honduras Maroon with Ermine White coves with a white soft top and a paint matched hard-top. The current owner has hung on to this vehicle over the last 26 years and has kept exceptional care of the vehicle throughout his ownership. It has always been detailed inside, out, and underneath, always stored in climate controlled storage, and never driven in bad conditions. The motor was professionally rebuilt about 5 years back - according to the owner, it features approximately 2,000 miles on it since the rebuild. Along with the engine, the clutch was replaced and the brakes were completely gone through. Powered by the 283 cubic inch 315hp motor mated to a 4 speed manual transmission, this Fuelie could not offer more fun. Please call or email us today for more information.

The Chevrolet Corvette (C1) is the first generation of the Corvette sports car produced by Chevrolet. It was introduced late in the 1953 model year, and produced through 1962. It is commonly referred to as the "solid-axle" generation, as the independent rear suspension did not appear until the 1963 Sting Ray. Four taillights appeared on the 1961, a treatment that continues to this day. Engine displacement remained at 283 cubic inches, but power output increased for the two fuel-injected engines to 275 and 315 hp (205 and 235 kW). Power ratings for the dual-four barrel engines did not change (245 hp and 270 hp) but this was the last year of their availability. This was the last year for contrasting paint colors in cove areas, and the last two-tone Corvette of any type until 1978. Also debuting in 1961 was a new boat-tail design later used on the C2.
