We have owned our "61" Corvette for about two and a half years now. We heard it was for sale from a fellow in North Canton, Ohio. He was trying to sell things in order to get enough money to purchase a helicopter! As son as we saw it, we knew that it belonged in our garage. We closed a deal as soon as we could and brought it home. One of the things that we really liked about it is that it all stock and in really great shape.
It is powered by a 283 cubic inch Small Block with two fours which produces 270 horsepower with a 4 speed transmission going to a stock rear-end. It has the correct wheels on it covered by G-70-15 tires. It is painted the original Hondures Maroon and Silver color in PPG paint.
We travel around the North-East Ohio area going to some of the cruises and even won a Trophy at the show we entered. We belong to the Antique Auto Club and have met many nice people cruising around with them.
