Corvette 1961

Title Status --
Exterior Color Purple
Interior Color Gray


Drenched in a purple hue that commands the streets with authority, this 1961 Chevrolet Corvette Pro Street stands as a bold declaration of power and style. Its aggressive stance is underlined by 15\" Weld Racing wheels clad in robust Vercelli and Hoosier tires, signaling its readiness to dominate the asphalt. A meticulous full repaint, applied around five years ago, showcases the vehicle\'s striking chrome trim and bumpers. Without a top, this Corvette boldly sports a roll cage, flaunting its muscular physique and tubbed rear, challenging onlookers to question its dominance.

Inside, a custom tweed interior featuring a full roll cage and harnesses transforms the cabin into more than mere seating-it becomes a command center for those brave enough to unleash the Corvette\'s raw power. Bucket seats with a floor shift, set against a backdrop of grey, are complemented by a Weld racing steering wheel and Lenco shifters, serving as the pilot\'s ultimate controls. From the aftermarket Autometer gauges to the three-point harness seatbelt, every detail of the interior is crafted for an exhilarating and exclusive driving experience.

Beneath the hood lies the heart of the 1961 Chevrolet Corvette Pro Street: a formidable 509 ci supercharged V8 engine. It unleashes fury through twin Holley 1150 Dominators and a 1471 BDS blower, with precision-engineered aluminum heads and a performance camshaft ensuring its growl is as fearsome as its performance. Paired with this beast is a sturdy Lenco 4-speed manual transmission, equipped with a McLeod dual disc clutch for seamless shifts. A Dana 60 rear end, loaded with 5.11 gears, guarantees explosive starts and rapid acceleration. An aluminum radiator with dual electric fans ensures the engine remains cool under pressure, highlighting this Corvette\'s build for serious street action beyond mere aesthetics.
