1961 White Chevrolet Corvette
Chevrolet Corvette C1 Very original, rare ducktail model
The C1 Corvette is an American icon. This 1961 white Chevrolet Corvette C1 is fitted with the equally iconic “smallblock" V8 engine. This Corvette's V8 delivers 230Hp through a 4-speed manual gearbox. The 1961 Corvette was the first version to feature the four round taillights. Ever since this design feature has figured in every Corvette. The '61 Corvette’s are nicknamed “duck tail” and are particularly popular with collectors. The synthetic bodywork is in a good and original condition with correct alignment. The paintwork is neat with some signs of use here and there. The chassis is also still very neat. The red vinyl interior trim is fully original and in good condition. Mechanically the corvette has been well maintained. Documentation shows that the clutch was replaced together with many engine gaskets in March 2019. The engine is still the same original one it had when it left the St. Louis 59 years ago. This Corvette has matching numbers. The duck tail Corvette’s only had a 2 year production run and have therefore become very rare and very attractive for collectors. In short this is a very neatly presented Corvette with well maintained mechanics.
