This car has a stack of documentation.

A beautifully restored 1961 Chevrolet Corvette is currently available for bidding on Bring a Trailer. This classic sports car has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment since being acquired by the current seller in 2020, including a striking red finish with white coves and a new 350ci ZZ6 V8 crate engine installation.

Originally equipped with a 283ci V8 engine and Rochester mechanical fuel injection, the Corvette maintains its heritage as both engines are included in the sale. This switch not only enhances the vehicle's performance but also preserves its original hardware, appealing to collectors and enthusiasts who value authenticity alongside modern power.

The Corvette's interior echoes the exterior's classic appeal, featuring red vinyl bucket seats, a matching dashboard, carpeting, and door panels. Modern amenities within the classic framework include a Wonder Bar AM radio and a heater, blending vintage aesthetics with contemporary comfort.

Externally, the car maintains its iconic 1961 styling, highlighted by a replacement black soft top, quad headlights, and polished chrome bumpers and trim. It rides on 15″ steel wheels adorned with simulated knock-off spinner covers, wrapped in Coker Classic whitewall tires, ensuring a smooth drive with a nod to its original era.

Safety is managed by four-wheel drum brakes, providing adequate stopping power for this potent machine. Underneath, the car is supported by a robust chassis that includes a Positraction limited-slip differential, ensuring that it handles as well as it looks.

For potential buyers looking for detailed provenance, the sale includes a stack of documentation and service records that chronicle the car’s history and the meticulous care taken during its restoration. The five-digit odometer currently reads 8,300 miles, with about 1,000 miles added since the current owner took possession.

This 1961 Corvette stands as a testament to careful preservation matched with thoughtful upgrades, making it a standout offering on the classic car auction circuit. As it hits the auction block, this Corvette is not just a purchase but an investment in automotive history.

This cool Corvette is being sold by Corvette Mike of Anaheim. Visit to see other inventory and learn more about their other services.
