So, you will understand our excitement about this beautiful custom 1961 Corvette! It is a work of art executed to a very high quality standard.
The owner acquired this Corvette around 1989 with the intent of building a classic custom. He and his wife working as a team completed the build in 2007. It was a labor of love and they worked on the Vette as time permitted. As you can see the results are stunning.
Every component (large and small) on this Corvette was finished to a very high standard and many received a custom touch. The frame and all its components are as nice as the body and interior and very fitting for a show car.
The stunning Pearl White paint has to be viewed in person to fully experience its beauty. Following the meticulous prep of the body (including the underside), three coats of PPG DBU base coat was sprayed as the first layer. Next three coats of Pearl White were applied followed by three coats of clear. Cadillac red was the color selected for the side coves, engine and chassis. Add to that ample use of chrome and 24k gold plating and the result is one spectacular 1961 Corvette show car.
The 355ci Chevy engine will output near 500 horsepower when the nitrous is activated. Check out those Predator dual fours sitting on top of the Edelbrock manifold. Of course, the 4-speed tranny just adds to the fun factor when and if you decide to take a ride.
The interior was fully restored including the gauges. You’ll note the seats are not the original style but sure look more comfortable. Other details like the carpet have subtle changes but the owner wanted to keep the overall appearance of the interior close to factory stock.
If you are looking for an outstanding example of a custom 1961 Corvette, this is one you should seriously consider. In fact, it is one you should personally inspect.
