Corvette Of The Day: 1961 Chevrolet Corvette 350 Modified
This 1961 Chevrolet Corvette has undergone a full fiberglass body restoration and now flaunts a stunning blue hue with silver coves. The exterior boasts of quad headlights, faux fender vents, and dual exhaust outlets, with chrome trims adding extra oomph to the front grille, split bumpers, light surrounds, and driver’s side mirror. The car sits on American Racing 17” wheels finished in gray and wrapped in Westlake SA-07 tires.
The cabin is decked in gray leather upholstery with reupholstered bucket seats, dashboard trims, and door panels. Interior equipment includes manually-operated windows, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a Lokar shifter, lap belts, a Pioneer stereo, a dash-mounted rearview mirror, and an air conditioning system.
Underneath the hood, this Corvette boasts a 350ci Chevrolet V8 engine with a 4-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake manifold, and finned aluminum valve covers, while a 3-speed automatic Powerglide transmission handles the power distribution to the rear wheels.
