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.
