    Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale WITHOUT RESERVE and SOLD to the highest bidder August 14th – 16th, 2014 at Russo and Steele’s 14th Annual Monterey California Auction. Please contact us for more information.

    Stunning in red with white coves, this very fine 1961 Corvette Roadster is similar to the C1 Corvettes featured in the hit Route 66 TV series, and it is easy to imagine yourself cruising with the top down on a hot sunny day. It was carefully restored with a thorough frame-on restoration during 2010, with a rebuilt engine, excellent body conditioning, and interior workmanship. Newly upholstered seats and a brand-new exhaust system are just a few of its outstanding features. The current owner purchased it after restoration in 2010 and less than 1,000 miles have been driven since completion.

    This 1961 Corvette has a 283/270 engine that is in excellent condition. The four-speed synchromesh transmission adds extra power to the turns and is great for cruising down the highway. The traditional C1 styling will turn heads everywhere it goes and the car will provide countless hours of fantastic driving experiences for the new owner.

    Note: The steering wheel on the automobile is a replica 15-inch wheel and the original 17-inch steering wheel comes with the car so the new owner can choose their preferred style. Original dealer sales literature, a magazine article from 1961, and reproduction assembly manuals are included with the sale of the car.
