We have a wonderful 1961 Corvette C1 with just 71,823 miles on the clock. This car with its lovely two-tone Honduras Red over Ermine White has come to us from the second owner. The last owner having kept the car since 1992.

We bought the car in Santa Barbara, California in the States. The were a number of things that immediately drew our attention and made sure we added this one to our collection. First of all there is the condition to consider. Good care and the warm Californian climate has preserved this car from the ravages of bad weather. That meant this Corvette never needed to be restored and is in very original condition. That does not mean they scrimped on maintenance. The previous owner spent over$ 26.000 in maintenance with one invoice totalling over $ 15.400. Mechanically the car is in A-1 condition, which becomes immediately obvious once behind the wheel. The brakes work fine and the car holds the road really well. The 283 Ci (4.6 litre) engine has been fitted with a Rochester fuel injector, giving her 315 Ps. This was the top of the range C1 edition, her 315 PS, despite her 60 summers, still making this a seriously fast car. The engine is attached to the rare and very popular manual 4-speed gearbox. Especially the presence of fuel injection is rare. In 1961 Chevrolet produced 10,931 Corvettes of which only 1,462 had the top of the range engine. Other rarities include the heating system and the factory supplied am radio.

The bodywork is still very original with only light signs of use. The paintwork is still neat and looks completely original with few blemishes commiserate with its age and mileage. The white hood is in good

order and shuts neatly. The fully original interior is in good used condition. The seating and carpets have been correctly looked after. Invoices dating back to 1992 and the original owner’s manual have been preserved.

This is a wonderful original 1961 Chevrolet Corvette C1 with its brilliant two-tone finish, in original condition, a top of the range engine unit attached to that manual gearbox.
