The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!


The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.


Classic Car Overview

This stunning 1961 Corvette was awarded the Concourse Blue Ribbon at the 2020 NCRS Regional meet at Lakeland, Florida with a near perfect score of 99.2. The “body off” restoration was just completed by NCRS judges Gary James and Jim Ranahan at Vintage Corvettes in Tampa. 

Beginning with an all original, all matching number car, we disassembled the car entirely and stripped all paint from the chassis and fiberglass. The High performance 270 HP, two four barrel, solid lifter, hot cam motor, and the four speed transmission were completely built with almost all new parts. We spared no expense to restore and reassemble her with the highest attention to detail. This stunning performer is as close to new as can be.

We regard this beauty as “Best of Both Worlds”. We recreated her for modern every day driving by adding; electric power steering, a smaller “original look” steering wheel, electric power front disc brakes, an alternator, an electric tach, electronic ignition, a “look alike” blue tooth radio, and 255/40/ZR18” tires on a great set of modern rims.

This 61 Corvette will always be one of the worlds most desired collector cars. Only 911 cars were produced in all Tuxedo Black and it was the last year of the two four barrel carb option. In 1961 the Corvette began its evolution from the C1 to C2 body style with a redesigned rear bumper, twin taillights, the exhaust exiting behind the rear tires, and a fine mesh front grill. This “Stingray” tail would be the hallmark of the C2 models to be released two-years later. 

This 61 is unique blend of classic with modern upgrades for driving pleasure, reliability, and safety. It has the pedigree of a recent near perfect NCRS score and a no expense spared restoration by two veteran NCRS judges. Everything about the car is fresh and new. If you take a closer look at many other NCRS award winning cars offered for sale you will find they won their awards 10 or even 20 years ago. Our restoration was just completed in February of 2020 and there are only test drive miles on her. Included will be all receipts, NCRS judging sheets, Blue Ribbon, and the original owners manual. 

You can own her with confidence and have a lifetime of enjoyment of something so rare and so special. She is not only pretty but a ton of fun to drive and no slouch when you push the pedal. The solid lifter, hot cam motor and dual exhaust make an impressive and sweet sound. Put the top down and bring a friend. Wherever you drive you will get thumbs up and horns honking. Take her to your local car shows and have an instant trophy winner and a whole new gang of appreciative friends.
