Do not miss out on this opportunity to become the new owner of this very unique and timeless classic Corvette convertible! This is a NO RESERVE auction.

In 1961 the Corvette (C1) bodywork got a serious facelift. A new simple grille and a totally different rear design that already gave a nice indication of things to come. The first year with four round tail lights which would become a Corvette tradition. The exhausts emerged for the first time from under the body instead of from the bodywork through the back panels. The last year that the Corvette could get tyres with the broad white faces (wide whitewall tires). Also the last year that one could get the bodywork with contrasting sides. There were only 10,939 pieces produced.

The Corvette C1 is less and less often encountered and begins to be a rarity in the streets, especially the sought after triple black design (black varnish, interior and carpet).

This car starts right away, idles nicely, accelerates powerfully and shifts smoothly through all gears. The Corvette engine with Edelbrock upgrades provides sufficient power! The engine is overhauled by the past owner 5 years ago. The original interior still looks very fresh. In addition, the Corvette still good in deep black lacquer and was recently fitted a new soft top.

So don’t wait and seize this opportunity to become the proud new owner of this magnificent piece of American history.
