You are bidding on 1961 Corvette Roadster that has been owned by me for the past 45 years. Its been a total labor of love to recently fully restore it. I spared no-expenses. I sought out the best specialists in the area to complete each phase. I have a fortune invested in the restoration. It is a matching #'s Corvette that has always been loved by me its come time now to pass the torch. It is a testament to the love, care given to this special Corvette over the course of its life. Here are more details.

The Details;

The body was completely stripped to bare glass painstakingly prepped for new Base/Clear Coats Ermine White with Silver Coves Urethane buffed to a mirror-glass finish. Note*only paint flaws are 2 tiny hairline stars in the hood barely seen caused by the dual air cleaner after market wing nuts that made slight contact with the hood (i have since removed/replaced them). The paint body restoration was very costly to complete at this high level it looks drop-dead gorgeous up close and personal. All the chrome has been show quality plated, SS trim was buffed to high luster. The Red interior is all new cost of 10k alone show quality it still retains the Wonderbar radio (not working). This car is one of only 442 equipped with optional Power Soft Top which was completely removed I have all the components nothing missing it still needs to be redone. 90% of the underside was removed glass beaded and painted properly using new nuts and bolts, gas shocks all new brakes and hardware, Stainless brake lines, new fuel tank and lines essentially the undercarriage looks beautiful as the top (* note I felt removing the body from frame it would never drive good as it came from the factory). Also as shown it has the optional restored hardtop which looks awesome on the car. The wheels are old school Rally wheels with spinners that give it a unique look the factory Chrome Hubcaps as pictured are included. I have kept all the original parts for the car so it can be easily shown totally stock as it was delivered except the steel wheels.

The Mechanics;

The engine is freshly rebuilt matching #'s 283/270hp V-8 cost at nearly 10k the pad stamp #'s remain intact very little run time since completion. The engine and bay were detailed while out. I have the stock original intake manifolds which are included. It has a brand new date coded Harrison Radiator. Factory Trans and Rear were removed freshly rebuilt rear has 411's. Carefully driven break-in miles only since completion. Car rides, shifts and drives like a dream. The original shifter is included.
