Corvette Description

Our Detroit Showroom is extremely proud to offer this absolutely stunning 1961 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod.  Although the term “Restomod" is often misused, this Corvette is the perfect example of what a Restomod really is.  At first glance, you are drawn in by the deep Black paint with an impressive stance on its full Art Morrison Chassis. This stance is achieved by Corvette upper and lower control arms, coil over shocks and a 4-link rear.  What all this meticulously planned suspension set up does is allow you to translate power from the LS3 6.2L V8 to the ground effectively.  The powerplant is paired to a tight and smooth shifting Tremec 5 Speed manual which spins the Ford 9" rear end with 3:73 gear ratio.  This car is extremely well sorted and ready for long or short distance cruising.  Along with all the go-fast parts, this Corvette can stop on a dime.  The 4 wheel drilled/slotted disc brakes are equipped with Wilwood 4 piston calipers that will grab the wheels to a stop as soon as you lay your foot on the brake pedal.  This Corvette features an impressive Red leather interior from Al Knoch who also supplied the black soft top.  The interior comforts you with modern amenities like a Kenwood Excelon 2din Multimedia unit that even has a reverse camera tucked in the rear.  The Navigation head unit provides a modern touch to the already impressive interior on this '61 Vette Restomod.  The Corvette sits on a very nice set of Billet Specialties wheels wrapped in none other Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, a Corvette must.  For the buyer who is looking for a truly exciting ride that brings back memories of a great time in American Automotive history and offers contemporary performance and comfort, this Vette is calling your name.  The craftsmanship on this Corvette are show worthy and you will be everyone's envy when they see that you aren't afraid to drive this beauty home.
