Wow! It's been a long time since I have seen a Corvette this nice!

You are bidding on a very nice 1961 Corvette . This will be the 496th vehicle that I have listed and sold here in this forum since 1998.

What began as an experiment in 1998 has now become a career of eighteen years here on Ebay.

Are you looking for instant gratification this summer?

If you are like me, instant gratification is good....

If you are thinking about going through the hassles and tim, and money (and nightmares) of restoring a vintage corvette..think about it...then buy this car instead...

This is an original car, that does NOT require restoration. You cannot duplicate originality at any cost.

This is a beautiful, RED convertible. It runs exceptionally well, is VERY fast, and has a great sound.

This isn't a car that you would want if you didn't want to attract LOTS of attention, as it turns heads everywhere it goes...And it doesn't just have the good looks about it, it has the shear muscle to back it up...

The prior owner had this car maintained regularly by a caretaker. If something broke, he fixed it.Not a trailer queen, but a period correct roadster that could be driven every day...

This car has the original 283 engine and automatic transmissio, even the carburetor is original .This is an exceptionally potent combination in a car of this weight, and the car has very robust performance.

The prior owner purchased this car in 1981 from Pat Patterson Volvo here in Memphis,Tn when a local doctor traded it in. The doctor was the original owner and I have documentation since 1981. The original mileage is 114,000 since new.

The interior has a nice patina about it,and in most aspects, it appears to be original. The dash details are nice, the gauges and dash look great. All of the instrumentation work, including all of the illumination. Even the under-dash lighting works.

Miles are 114,640 at the time of writing and these are the original miles.

The interior is in fair condition. I believe the seats and carpet to likely be original.


This is a great car for this Summer and Fall. Again, it's ready to go...

I'm not claiming it's perfect, it's 55 years old..


If your purpose is to have a very beautiful, FAST, 61 Corvette convertible, that you can drive right now... This is it.

As you can clearly see, the paint and body are really nice..Not perfect mind you, but nice enough to attract, second and third looks from just about everyone that you pass in your rear-view mirror.

This would be a great, and downright fun investment.

Have you watched the Barrett-Jackson auctions on television?

Do you ever see a nice mid year Corvette sell for less than $85k at the auction?

Nope... You don't...

Buy this car, keep it for two years...It will be a $100k car...

NADA average retail is $64,750 and high retail is $92,475

Follow this link to view the NADA retail price

The last time I checked...they weren't making these anymore...

Buy it now is a modest $62,500. You get what you pay for...

Reserve is slightly beneath buy it now.

This was hard to photograph, but the engine is the original, numbers matching engine and bears the vin. You can make out the 007 at the end pretty easily.

I operate my business much like that of a mail order business. I send my cars all over the country. I deal only with 2 shippers and can efficiently send your vehicle ANYWHERE to you at minimal cost and hassle. My customers enjoy the convenience of buying from me. When you get your vehicle, it is ready to go. I change the oil and check all fluids before it leaves my office. You will receive a full tank of fuel and a temporary operation permit good for 30 days.
Should you have any questions regarding this vehicle, please do not hesitate to call me.

Overall, this is going to be one of the best automobiles you could ever contemplate purchasing.

To drive this car is nothing less than a euphoric experience. You will have quite a time removing the smile that will be permanently etched upon your face.

It will only appreciate in value over in the future.

No, it's not brand new, it's unrestored and 55 years old. It will require care and maintenance just like any other car. It is very easy to work on and the parts are readily available and are inexpensive. Any gas station mechanic can work on a Chevrolet V8.

Don't bother asking your wife...Asking for forgiveness is much easier than asking for permission.

I am willing to give it to the winning high bidder/purchase, provided that they offer a hassle free, polite and prompt transaction.
