For Sale in our Detroit Showroom is a shiny, 1961 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
1961 marked the first year for an updated front fascia for the Corvette which removed the "teeth" from the grill area. This specific Corvette is dressed in Honduras Maroon with a Black vinyl interior. This Corvette's power plant is the biggest selling point of the car, it is an original 283 CID Fuel Injected V8 pumping out a solid 315 horsepower! Only 1400 of these fuel injected Corvettes were made in the year of 1961, the majority of them being converted back to carburetor after finding that the fuel injection system was much too difficult to repair. Paired to that rare and powerful motor is a 4-speed manual transmission that shifts through the gears like a hot knife through butter. The interior on this Corvette is sporting it's all original look with a Black vinyl interior which gives you a nostalgic feeling every time you are behind the wheel. This Corvette comes with many new features including a paint matched hard top, stainless exhaust, stainless fuel lines, stainless brake lines, aluminum radiator, and a freshly rebuilt motor. Whether it is driving down your favorite winding road with the top down or cruising down to your local car show, this first-generation Corvette is sure to please its next owner.
