Picture this, it's the weekend, and you're looking forward to cruising in your vintage convertible and taking life as it comes. You make your way down to realize the absence of that vintage convertible cruiser you pictured in your dream. The car we have today makes that picture-perfect dream a reality; present right here in our inventory is a beautiful 1961 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible; with a reported 13,000 miles on the clock, this vintage American beauty is the perfect companion on a Sunday drive and even doubles down as the ideal conversation piece at exclusive car shows.
The 1961 model year was a special year for the first-generation Corvette. You got a fresh redesign with the twin headlights, and the last year that Corvette buyers would get to have their brand-new sports cars in a two-tone body color. This 1961 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible sports a lovely red-on-white exterior and looks exactly like the car featured in Rum Diary featuring Johnny Depp. The car also sports its original features and even sits on its factory hubcaps wrapped with white wall tires. The black interior also sports all its factory features and even has the car's original clock nestled in the dashboard. The seller reports that the car has new seats for more comfort.
The Corvette today is known as a sports car, but back in the early 60s, car buyers were getting to know the Corvette; setting the right perception was an important task, but the folks over at Chevrolet sure gave customers the right looks and performance to match as well. Under the hood of this lovely 1961 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is a 283ci (4.6L) small block V8 engine, which, when new, was capable of pushing out an impressive 270hp. The seller reports that the car has had an engine rebuild in 2012, and the generator has also been rebuilt to rid of electrical gremlins with a kill switch installed as well. Power is sent to the rear wheels of the car through a four-speed manual transmission. Thanks to this car equipped with power steering, Sunday drives are made effortless and memorable. The disc brakes on all four corners ensure you stop on time.
