The Corvette (C1) bodywork got a serious facelift in 1961. A new simple grille and a totally different rear design gave a good indication of things to come. The first year with four round tail lights, this would become a Corvette tradition. The exhausts emerged for the first time from underneath the body instead of from the bodywork through the back panels. This C1 model was only manufactured for 2 years and only 14,531 units were delivered in 1962.
The Corvette C1 is seen less and less often and is starting to become a rarity on the streets, certainly the sought after Tuxedo black version with a black interior.
This car starts straight away, idles nicely, accelerates powerfully and shifts smoothly through all gears. The car has a 327CI (5.4L) engine with Edelbrock Torker intake and carburettor with enough power!
The Corvette has been completely restored by the previous owner (frame-off), the engine has been overhauled and completely rebuilt with many new and chrome-plated parts, the engine bay looks stunning.
The interior looks very fresh as can be seen in the pictures, the Corvette has nice deep 'Tuxedo Black' paintwork. A new soft-top was fitted in the past. Recently fitted with new brakes, a stainless steel exhaust system and as good as new whitewall tyres.
So don’t wait and seize this opportunity to become the proud new owner of this beautiful piece of American history!
