General description : Corvette C1 1961 for sale

Exterior: I think regardless of what type of cars you like, everybody can agree that the Corvette C1 Convertible is a very beautiful car. And, the colour combination on this particular Corvette must be one of the best that was available from Chevrolet at the time. To then finish that off with a set of wide white wall tires feels like this must have been the American dream car in 1961. The paintwork from 2017 looks awesome. It has a very nice depth and shine, and the fiberglass body has no visible cracks. The chrome details are outstanding and all rubber is soft and in good condition. As you can see in the pictures, the Corvette C1 has a normal level ride height and very good panel fit.

Interior: The Corvette C1 interior is just gorgeous with so many little chrome details that still look like new. And, it is when you see all these details that are in such good shape, you can understand the low km. The counter indicates just over 42,000 miles which would be 67,200km. The trunk area is nice and clean with the original rubber carpet. Underneath lie the original spare and jack with correct numbers and stickers.


Engine: Corvette V8 283cui with two twin barrel carburettors gives this car 270hp. This is more than enough for an open car.

About Corvette C1
Corvette C1, also known as the first-generation Corvette, was produced from 1953 to 1962. It was Chevrolet's first mass-produced sports car and was designed to compete with European sports cars, such as the Jaguar XK120 and the Mercedes-Benz 300SL.

The C1 was powered by a 235 cubic inch inline-six engine in its first year of production, but a more powerful V8 engine was introduced in 1955, which increased the car's performance significantly. The top-of-the-line engine option was a fuel-injected 283 cubic inch V8, which produced up to 315 horsepower.

The C1 Corvette was known for its sleek and aerodynamic design, which was inspired by the aircraft of the time. It featured a fiberglass body, a long hood, and a short rear deck, giving it a distinct look that has become synonymous with the Corvette brand.

Throughout its production run, the C1 Corvette underwent a number of changes and improvements, including the introduction of a four-speed manual transmission in 1957 and the addition of power brakes and power steering in 1961.

Today, the C1 Corvette remains a highly sought-after collector car, with its sleek design, powerful engines, and significant place in American automotive history cementing its status as an icon of the 1950s and 1960
