Now for sale in Gateway Classic Cars Houston is this super sweet 1961 Chevrolet Corvette. The Chevrolet Corvette (C1) is the first generation of the Corvette sports car produced by Chevrolet. It was introduced late in the 1953 model year, and produced through 1962. In 1961 the C1 Solid axle generation Corvette had some upgrades including New rear styling, bumpers, 4 round taillights, and a new Mesh Grill.

This sweet first-generation corvette comes with a twist and it a little different from the others in the market. Shown in a brilliant light blue paint finish that shows extremely well and is of high showroom quality. The paint condition is very nice and free from any dings, dents, scratches, or blemishes. The exterior chrome bumpers & trim are in excellent condition and really make the car stand out. The fit & finish on the car is of a very high degree and we can’t decide if the car looks better indoors or out in the sunshine. We can agree that our HD pictures do not do this car’s finish justice. With its sleek body lines, and captivating colors it is no surprise that this is one of the most collectible classic cars ever to hit the scene. The car sits on a set of very nice 19-inch Colorado custom wheels that are wrapped in BF Goodrich performance tires that have plenty of life in them. Behind those wheels you will find slotted performance steel rotors on all 4 corners that have multi-piston black calipers to bring this beauty to a stop on a dime. The black manual convertible top is in like new condition and goes up & down with ease.

Powering this bad C1 down the road is a transplanted LT5 350 CiD V8 4 camshaft 32 Valve tuned port fuel injection engine out of a later model ZR-1 Corvette. The motor swapped just works for this car and fits nicely into the engine bay. It runs strong & healthy and the fact that it is paired to a 6-speed manual transmission that shifts firm but smooth into each gear, really sets this Vette apart from the rest.

IT HAS A ZR-1 MOTOR PEOPLE!!! Does it get any better than that??

The interior features a multicolored black/white/blue combo that works well with the exterior. The seats, door panels, carpet, & dash are all in excellent condition and is very comfortable. The sweet 160mph white faced speedo and custom center console with 6 inch TV screen head unit that controls the cars custom & upgraded sound system. Speakers in the kick panels and fully custom trunk filled with high end Sony speakers & amps give you all the tunes you’ll need with rowing gears on that 4 cam ZR-1 motor.

The body of the car is mounted on complete tubular racing chassis with fully upgraded multi-link suspension with adjustable coil over suspension on all 4 corners giving you the maximum customizing to configure the ride just the way you like it. With all new suspension & body bushings this will make sure a very comfortable and commanding ride. To see more of the HD pics & video we have on the car please follow the below link to our website.

1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport


Engine: 327 CID V8
Transmission: 4 Speed Manual
Mileage: 0 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to present this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport. We all dreamed about finding a “unicorn” car. A car so rare it sends the collector car world into a frenzy. There are very few cars that call mass hysteria. The ones that come to mind are the 1966 Shelby Cobra twin-turbocharged “Super Snake” (2 made 1 survivor) or a “Dodge Daytona”, another limited production car. If you can locate one of these cars, they bring six and seven figures in the collector car world. So, if these cars are bringing in that kind of money and are cars people know existed, then what value would you put on a car that never was supposed to exist? This brings me to the term “ghost”, or “phantom” car. These cars are vehicles that were never supposed to leave the manufacture for one reason or another. In this particular case, Chevrolet completely shut down the 1963 Corvette Grand Sport program deeming it against the corporate racing policy. There are five confirmed early Grand Sport’s, with talks of a sixth that has never been verified. In the early days of race car and muscle car production, manufactures were known to send parts and cars out the “backdoor.” What are we dealing with here when talking about this 1963 Chevrolet Grand Sport? This car was purchased from the previous owner who owned it for 37 years. The current owner bought the car in pieces and is responsible for presenting it now as a finished car. The previous owner resided in Michigan and started collecting parts to return the car back to its glory days. Once health issues started settling in, he was forced to move on from the Vette. The previous owner stated the car had its tubular frame replaced, which I’m assuming was due to rot. Once the current owner acquired the car in pieces, he began a journey along with a GM specialist, to restore the “Grand Sport” back to its hay day. After a long, extensive restoration period, the car is done in white exterior and red interior. You can see right off there are some very telling signs that this Grand Sport Vette is not one of the 5 or 6 that were raced. It shows newer style seats and reproduction wheels. It does have the cross-ram racing intake with the Weber carburetors. It also has a 1963 casting number block, and a 200 mile per hour speedometer. You’re correct, that’s not enough to say this is possibly a “Real” Grand Sport 1963 Corvette. The absolute two most important attributes of this car are its VIN and the TITLE. The VIN number reads S0837X10008 and the TITLE matches. All of the experts are sure about what this car is until it comes to one question they can’t explain. How does this car have that VIN number and a matching title? The experts have said this is an authentic Chevrolet VIN plate. So… if it is a “real” 1963 Chevrolet Corvette displaying characteristics that only the Grand Sport Vette VIN plates had, then technically this would be a real 1963 Chevrolet Grand Sport, right? The owner also states this is a Numbers Matching 327 engine, and 4-speed manual transmission. Is this a “unicorn”? A mythical car that somehow made its way out of the backdoor of the GM plant. That would explain why documentation is virtually non-existent. Options include Vinyl Interior, Kill Switch, Aluminum/Alloy Wheels, and Weber 42 Carb System. This 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is for sale in our Tampa Showroom and can be viewed in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. For additional information, please call our knowledgeable staff at (813)645-6200 or email us at Tampa@GatewayClassicCars.com. If you would like to see it in person, come to our Tampa Showroom, located at 351 30th Street NE, Ruskin, FL 33570. Hours: Monday through Saturday, 9 AM to 5 PM EST.

1959 Chevrolet Corvette

1959 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 283 CID Fuelie V8 290 HP
Transmission: Borg Warner T10, 4 Speed
Mileage: 4,687 ( since rebuilt )

Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is proud to offer a beautiful 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Fuelie. Introduced in 1957, mechanical fuel injection was offered on Corvettes as a higher horsepower variant of the standard cars. In 1959 this meant your choice of a 250 Horsepower or 290 Horsepower 283 CID V8 with no carburetor to be found. 745 buyers chose the $484.20 option to get the 290 HP Fuelie. This particular example is beautifully optioned in Crown Sapphire with white coves and Turquoise interior. She wears the appropriate hub caps with knock offs wrapped in wide white wall tires. The chrome trim on this particular car is in great shape and makes for a dazzling piece of eye candy. Inside you'll find more chrome and stainless trim to accent the black upholstery. This awesome 1959 Corvette has the Crown Sapphire paint that only 888 Corvette’s left the factory with. Driving enthusiasts will be delighted to see that behind the 290 HP v8 is a proper 4 speed manual transmission. Speaking of the drive train, the engine has been completely rebuilt, and perhaps even more importantly, the fuel injection system has been rebuilt by an expert that specializes in these systems. The car runs beautifully and is a delight to pilot down the road. Being a Fuelie, and therefore quite rare, this is a true collector's piece. This car would be at home in the most avid Corvette collector's garage. You can see this awesome 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Fuelie in greater detail in our Detroit showroom or at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Please contact 313-982-3100 or Detroit@gatewayclassiccars.com with inquires.

1959 Chevrolet Corvette

1959 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 283 CID V8 245 HP
Transmission: 4-Speed Manual
Mileage: 91,410 ( actual )

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is very pleased to offer this absolutely immaculate 1959 Chevrolet Corvette roadster (RPO 867) for sale right now in our Arizona showroom. This beauty comes equipped with everything a C1 performance Corvette enthusiast could want - the numbers-matching engine is factory-rated at 245 HP (RPO 469) when equipped with the dual four barrel carbs and a regular camshaft. Of course, all the power is transmitted through a BW T-10 manual 4-spd transmission (RPO 685) to a posi-traction rear axle (RPO 675). This American icon is painted a very rare color called Frost Blue (502A) with complementing white coves (510A). The red interior really pops with this exterior color combination. Of the 9,670 Corvettes built in 1959, just 1,024 were painted this striking color, putting this color's production at just 10.6% of the yearly total. No further breakdown exists of cove colors and interior colors. If so, this car would undoubtedly be much rarer than that. The icing on the cake for this roadster is that it has been awarded NCRS credentials. Vey impressive and when you see this car in person, you'll quickly understand why. Nicely optioned with an AM Radio (RPO 102), whitewall tires (RPO 290), two tone paint (RPO 440), folding top (470), this amazing '59 'vette will be the focal point of any collection or the best car that most people can say they've ever had! To learn more information about this beautiful 1959 Chevy Corvette for sale right now in our Scottsdale location please give us a call at (623) 900-4884 or send us an email directly at scottsdale@gatewayclassiccars.com.

1959 Chevrolet Corvette

1959 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 283 CID V8 270HP 2x4BL
Transmission: 4 Speed Manual
Mileage: 60,200 ( undocumented )

For sale in our Dallas-Ft. Worth showroom is this gorgeous tuxedo black 1959 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. This stunning car has a beautiful red interior, a 270 hp 2x4 solid lift 283 with a 4-speed transmission and wide whitewalls with knockoff hubcaps. To the credit of all involved, the 1959 Corvette was “cleaned up” considerably. For one, the chrome “suspenders” were removed from the design, providing Corvette with a more swept back look that was synonymous with speed. For another, it was decided that the faux hood louvers would be eliminated, returning the Corvette to a semblance of its former self. While these features were key identifiers of the 1958 Corvette, there was no question that the elimination of the excessive chrome would reduce weight and help increase performance. Much like the exterior of the Corvette, the interior received minor, but significant updates as well. Both the door handles and the armrests were repositioned and a small-item storage compartment was added beneath the passenger side grab bar. In addition, both the driver and passenger seats were redesigned to offer increased lateral support of their occupants. All tachometers now indicated up to 7,000 rpm and offered redline and safe limit indicators. Sun visors were introduced to the 1959 Corvette as a new option and concave instrument lenses replaced the flat covers of the 1958 Corvette, thereby reducing sun glare (and other reflections) that might cause a driver to become distracted.

1957 Chevrolet 210

1957 Chevrolet 210


Engine: 327 V8
Transmission: 4-Speed Manual
Mileage: 73,010 ( undocumented )

For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a 1957 Chevrolet 210 Hardtop. This sweet little 210 is powered by a 327 small block Chevy and backed by a manual 4-speed transmission. Power is sent to a stock '57 rear end housing a set of 3.36:1 rear gears allowing for fun around town yet still very highway worthy. The paint is base coat clear coat Quasar Blue Metallic, is roughly 2-3 years old, is still looking great and right at home on this '57 210. Inside you'll find a stock appearing interior with correct 210 seats. Most restorations seem to lean towards Bel Air interiors regardless if they’re Bel Airs or not. The 210 looks just as good and is in an Ivory and Charcoal color scheme that goes quite well with the Quasar Blue Metallic. Miles are showing 73,010 and are believed to be original. Modern upgrades include an aluminum radiator to help dissipate heat and keep the engine running cool. Adding to the aluminum radiator is an electric cooling fan. These electric fans are very good to have during any summer parade or stuck in traffic where the clutch fan isn't spinning fast enough to keep things cool. Brakes are original style drums and are brand new. An Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold helps breath cool air into the heads and an Edelbrock carburetor supplies the fuel. Edelbrock has sure made a name for themselves over the years and this easy to use carburetor solidifies their great reputation. Other notable restoration items include a new windshield, new side glass and rubber gaskets for the doors, windshield and trunk. 1957 Chevy's are as American as Apple Pie and probably one of the most recognizable cars ever built. This one has the looks and that great V8 rumble. Don’t miss out on this classic ’57! For more information on this 1957 Chevrolet 210 Hardtop, call our St. Louis showroom at 618-271-3000.
