1961 was the first year in Corvette history when an engine was rated at more than 300HP... It was the famous 283 "Fuelie" rated at 315HP, a very costly option at the time, $484.20 when the base price was $3934. This particular model came equipped with this engine, also with the following options:
AM signal seeking radio $137.75
Positive Crankcase ventilation $5.40
15x5.5 wheels $0
two-tone exterior paint $16.15
positraction rear axle $43.05
4-speed manual transmission $0
Actual owner had it for 32 years and did a complete off-frame restoration in 2005 which allowed him to obtain two consecutive NCRS Top Flight awards , that is, the car is restored to being at least 94% of the original. Virtually everything of the car is brand new, engine was rebuilt to original specs, tranny recently serviced, all, but all, in excellent condition...
It is hard add any more to the description since two NCRS judges granted it with the most coveted award twice... So, collectors, enthusiasts, investors, feel free to purchase with no reservations.
Car located in South-West Florida. We will arrange delivery nationwide and all over the world.
