Welcome to THE VETTE NET, the most experienced online Corvette broker service (founded in 1998). Whether you are buying or selling a Vette, we offer you our extensive knowledge and commitment to help make your transaction pleasant and professional. The Vette Net is a proud Lifetime Business Member of the National Corvette Museum.

We are pleased to bring to your attention a very fine example of the first generation of Corvettes (1953-1962) which went through an extensive cosmetic and performance upgrade, the result being an exquisite time machine with classic look and modern performance.

It started with a "regular" 1961 Fuelie Corvette and, now it features a recent "Candy Apple Red" dual stage show quality high end paint. 

Engine is a fresh crate 383 ported, with a dual four-barrel Holley carburetor setup.  HP is not known, but similar applications are known to push out 400 ponies (+) pretty easily.   It comes with Pro-headers, Aluminum high-rise intake, Edelbrock valve covers... Engine is highly detailed with lots of polished parts as seen in pics.   Note that car is endowed with a modern AC system with ducts seamlessly fitted inside the cabin and controls using factory set-up.   Has custom exhaust, rear air shocks, short throw shift linkage, front Wilwood disk brakes, drum rear brakes.  Check out the US MAG custom wheels, adding a mild custom look, riding on hi-performance BFG tires looking like new.  Undercarriage is clean and nicely detailed.

Interior is all newly re-upholstered to excellent condition. All gauges, instruments, clock and radio are fully functional. The quality of the paint, Chrome, rubber parts, etc is excellent.  Note that the car comes with a painted hard top, also with new Black soft top.  Mileage show 67K now which are likely correct, since car was sold in 2007 at Barrett-Jackson with 63K miles stated as "actual".

It would be hard to replicate a similar car for the money, so this is your chance to enjoy a performance “Retro-mod” preserving the look, but with added reliability. It comes to you from an enthusiast in FLORIDA and can be shipped all over the country and worldwide.  Financing assistance provided by clicking on this link.
