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.

1964 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: LS3 525 HP
Transmission: 6 Speed Manual
Mileage: 1500 ( since rebuilt )

Now for sale in our Houston showroom is one awesome 1964 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod. Before this radical transformation, the car was stored in a warehouse for over 30 years. Luckily, the car was recovered from what has been the end of many great cars, and the decision was made to make it into the amazing machine you see before you. Performed by the Duntov Motor Company in Dallas, Texas, no expense was spared on this restoration/modification. Specializing in building, racing, and restoring vintage Corvettes, Duntov’s expertise shines through brilliantly on this build. The frame was stripped completely down, dipped in an alkaline vat, and primed to a level higher than you would have seen on the line in St. Louis. Pop the forward tilting hood and you will find a brand new GM Performance LS3 engine. This particular LS is pumping out 525 hp, making this little black C2 a force to be reckoned with. All of that force is sent to the rear wheels through a Tremec 5 speed manual and spinning a Duntov differential housing 3.73 gears. Keeping this little beast planted is a complete Duntov front and rear suspension set up. The entire undercarriage, engine compartment, and inside of the body was sprayed with Lizard Skin to keep heat and unwanted sounds out of the cabin. Fans of Fast & Loud may recognize Sue’s handy work, as ASM performed all of the interior work, including the Corbeau leather reclining seats with 4 point harnesses. Adding to the interior comforts is a custom Bluetooth sound system, power windows, power steering, and a Flaming River tilt steering column. This car was a factory air car, and it has been upgraded with a Vintage Air A/C system. Naturally, you top off a build like this with phenomenal paint. 10 coats of primer were applied with sanding between each coat, then 3 coats of black base and 3 coats of clear coat. Throw in the smoked chrome Coy’s wheels and the brutal side pipes, and this car has the presence to match the build. This is one unique C2 Corvette that will not disappoint.

Engine: 327 CID V8
Transmission: 4-Speed Manual
Mileage: 500 ( since rebuilt )

Up for sale now in our Houston showroom is this numbers-matching 1962 Chevrolet C-1 Corvette. The final year of the first generation Corvette, this car is adorned with options that would be found on the last of a decade-long body style, including: a wraparound windshield, solid rear axle, and convertible-only body style. The exposed headlamps and trunk lid did not re-appear for many decades. The Corvette line was born in 1953 as a concept entry into the New York Auto Show, known as the Motorama. The response was so great it prompted General Motors to begin limited production for the 1953 model year which launched a legend. This '62 Corvette for sale comes from the same pedigree, and is ready to show and go! Moving this beauty down the road is a classic 327 CID small-block Chevy V8 engine.

Top down, radio on, exhaust rumbling, and passersby giving you a double-take as you’re hustling her through the twisties. Nestled into a cockpit-inspired cabin with aviation-style instrumentation and wrap around bucket seats, one can truly feel why this car has become the living legend it is. The beige vinyl sport buckets straddle the shifter snugly, begging you to slip in and run through the gears! With an exterior that’s just as sharp as the interior, it’s hard to go wrong with this 1962 Corvette convertible for sale. The classic styling of this C-1 Corvette was a perfect example of the new trend in American styling. The Wineberry Red paint on this C-1 'Vette hugs every sexy curve of this old school cruiser. The raised front and rear fenders makes for a very muscular stance, low to the ground, and very aggressive. The quad headlights and the blacked-out anodized grill completed the concept that had, at that time, taken America by storm. Options on this 1962 Chevy Corvette for sale, include: AM radio, manual convertible top, hard top, seat belts, vinyl interior, and steel wheels with hub caps wrapped in whitewall radial tires. This 1962 C-1 Corvette for sale at our Houston location is an amazing opportunity to own and enjoy one of the true great American sports cars of all time. This car will get up and go.

Engine: 5.7L V8 F OHV
Transmission: 4-Speed Auto
Mileage: 46310 ( undocumented )

Now for sale in our Milwaukee showroom is this unique 1984 Chevrolet Corvette. Between the sharp C4 lines and the relatively low mileage, this car will make an excellent driver. 1984 was the first year of the C4 body style. The C4 corvette brought back more powerful engines and the convertible option to the cars. This generation of corvette was also the first to have the Glass hatchback to allow for convenient storage in the rear. Braking was improved with aluminum calipers and new rotors. In the rear, the suspension was updated with a Fiberglass mono-leaf instead of a traditional leaf spring. Powering this sleek ride is a 5.7-liter Crossfire V8 that was good for 205 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. This power helped accelerate the car to 60 MPH in a little over 6 seconds when new. Sending the V8 power to the rear wheels is a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive that shifts smoothly through the gears. Overall this car runs well and would be a good driver or weekend cruiser. Moving outward, this sleek ride is finished with unique striping and multicolor Chameleon clearcoat. It’s a 1996 World of Wheels winner, and was awarded best-in-show in multiple shows. Upon entering the interior, the driver will feel very comfortable thanks to the power leather seats which feature lumbar support. This car is loaded with amenities such as power mirrors, power windows, power brakes, power steering and power locks. In the summer months, the driver will appreciate the removable glass top that allows for plenty of sunshine and fresh air. When it comes time to listen to some driving music, the sound system in this car is sure to impress.
