Vehicle Description

Best of both worlds. You prefer the classic factory appearance but enjoy some upgrades like air conditioning? Well this has it along with power steering, power 4 wheel disc brakes and much more! The previous owner was very clever at how he had several upgrades done while retaining the original look. EXTERIOR: It looks just as it did when it sat on the showroom floor in 1961. The same classic style with the white coves and spinner hubcaps. Well, actually it is better then it was in 1961 because I guarantee the paint was never this nice. The color might be tweaked a bit to really give it a little more pizazz. The clear coat finish is glossy and smoother too. The body is exceptionally good too. It is real straight and all the panels fit very nicely. I don't see any signs of damage or cracking. Upfront all of the chrome is redone, the bumpers, bumper guards, grill surround, emblems, spears on top of the fenders look new. The grill itself is in very good original condition. On the sides the emblems, handles, mirror, stainless moldings look new. The trim around the windshield is polished, window pillars are rechromed. The windshield and gasket are replaced. In back the bumper and tail lights have been replaced. Chevy emblem on the trunk is the original. Hubcaps and spinners look new. The white convertible top is in excellent shape. Another upgrade that isn't noticeable until you drive it are the tires. They still have the big classic white wall but are modern BFG radials for improved ride. The rims are painted to match the body. New weatherstrips. INTERIOR: It also retains it's original nostalgic look inside down to the 4-speed shifter and wonderbar radio. The interior also has a few tricks up it's sleeve. The air conditioning vents are neatly installed below the dash and barely noticeable, the controls are incorporated into the factory knobs so you don't realize it's even there. The original Wonder Bar radio has been rebuilt to work as an FM stereo, the speaker is upgraded too. Another subtle, but significant change is the steering wheel. It was made smaller which gives much more room and easier to get in and out. Power steering allows for a smaller wheel. It also has had seatbelts added. A rare factory option are the power windows. Condition is very good. The seats have new cushions and upholstery. Carpet, shift bezel, ashtray, dash pad were replaced. The silver trim on door panels and dash look original. ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Now this is where several secret upgrades have been fitted. For starters the 283 was replaced with a 1971Corvette 350 engine putting out 100 hp more. More reliable HEI ignition, generator upgraded with alternator, carb was rebuilt. All new heat and air conditioning system installed. All new power brake system with a safer dual reservoir master. Aluminum water pump, upgraded radiator with electric fan keeps it cool. A cleverly engineered power steering system was retrofitted. The column was cut making sure the original vin was not touched, and all new custom linkage was installed. The 3 major upgrades were never even available in a 61 Vette- Air conditioning, power steering and power brakes. Everything is cleaned, painted and looks nice. TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It is clean and painted body color. Has divider panel and spare tire cover. New weatherstrip. UNDERSIDE: Very respectable condition. The frame is rock solid. Fiberglass looks like undamaged original, actually it's still original raw yellow color. The rear axle straps are still there. Another huge upgrade are disc brakes at all 4 wheels. Each have slotted and drilled rotors. All new brake hoses lines and even e-brake system. Newer dual exhaust system, recent shocks. It has original dated 4-speed. This gorgeous Vette has comfort, reliability and performance far beyond what it was born with. I have not seen another one with all this has to offer. Full custom versions have been selling $250,000 to $350,000. Turnkey ready to use and enjoy! I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of each car. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
