1961 Corvette Roman red with white coves and black interior. This Corvette is good cosmetic and mechanical
condition. This is a non-matching numbers Corvette, 4 speed and appears to be a real Roman red car. I was told
when I purchased it about 6 years ago that it has a 1969 Camaro 327. The paint is presentable (NOT show quality)
and does have some minor scratches and cracking in some areas. From 5 feet away, it looks great.
The white top is intact and fits nice with a small tear just from being in the down position. When I took the
pictures, I hadn’t had the top up for about 5 years – hence the wrinkles. There is no rush on the frame
(appears to have been well rust proofed when new). Appears to have been be repainted once.
The only problem, which does not affect the driving or handling is that the heater box was/is removed and the
immediate area around the passenger hood latch was re-glassed and done poorly (see pictures). It does not affect
the outside appearance (hood area or cowl or the working of the hood latch. I know the person who had the car
before me and it was done over 20 years ago). I have the heater core parts – they go with the car.
The Carburetor was totally professionally rebuilt, rear end had been rebuilt (likely to change gears to a lower
ratio (believe they are 352 gears)) for cruising, the clutch, pressure plate and throw-out bearing were replaced
and the radiator was completely disassembled and re-cored.
I have had a number of Corvettes from the years 1954 to C3’s – most NCRS Top Flight quality cars. I brought
this car to enjoy as a driver. I live in NJ and wouldn’t hesitate to get in the car and drive 1K miles. It is
very reliable and starts immediately. I take the car to Corvette Carlisle with no problems (350 miles). The car
has radial tires on it to improve handling.
I am only selling the car because I will be moving in a year and have other collector cars and motor cycles. The
cost of moving the herd any distance gets expensive. If I don’t sell it, it’s not a big deal to me.
I took 170 picture and will be glad to send you whatever angle or view you would like. If you are in NJ, I would
encourage you to look at the car. I will make every effort to be available.
