1961 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
The paint and interior are in Concours condition. It's that beautiful. Roman Red Roadster with Ermine White coves. Black Interior and White Soft Top. All Corvettes built in 1961 were Convertibles.
Matching numbers 283/230hp engine with correct CQ code stamp, matched to a smooth 4 speed transmission and correct shifter linkage.
We like the 283 which was really dialed-in by 1961. The valve-in-head V8's have 3.88” bore and 3.0” stroke, precision balanced assembly. All 283ci have independent operating mechanism for each valve, precision-machined forged steel crankshaft, five main bearings, full-pressure lubrication system, full-flow oil filter, 12-volt electrical system, full dual exhaust, oil-wetted, polyurethane element, buffed aluminum air cleaner and all-aluminum cross-flow radiator.
Options include an upgraded Custom Auto Sound AM/FM Cassette Player, smaller diameter leather wrapped black steering wheel, heater, wide white wall tires and full wheel covers.
Underneath you'll recognize the box-girder, X-member reinforced frame, independent coil spring front suspension with stabilizer bar. rear suspension bi-radius rods and outrigger-mounted semi elliptic leaf springs with stabilizer bar, unit-balanced tubular propeller shaft and universal joints, hydraulic 11-inch self-energizing brakes with fade-resistant bonded linings. Hand-operated parking brake on rear wheels and the 16.4-gallon fuel tank.
This car spent most of its life in Tulsa, Oklahoma, therefore the condition is of true Southern cars free from corrosion.
