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 masterfully crafted red on red 1961 Corvette is now available from the Maxmotive Pittsburgh Showroom. While retaining all the classic character of the revered 61 Vette, this superior example offers many new components and strategic modern upgrades that contribute to an even better driving experience. Everything from breakerless ignition to rack & pinion steering are subtly mixed in. The project was completed in 2015 and all the work is documented with an impressive stack of invoices. Under the hood is a period-correct 327 small block V8, with a new Edelbrock carb and Pertronix distributor, and its coupled to a T-10 four speed manual transmission. The body was painstakingly massaged, block sanded, and painted in red with a contrasting white cove, and all the trim and emblems replaced with new ones. The stock frame is used, but power rack & pinion steering and power front disc brakes (with new brake lines), in conjunction with a new set of Coker Classic wide whitewall radials, improve the cars ride, directional stability and road feel. The entire suspension system has been refreshed. The interior looks new because, well, it is. A new, right-sized steering wheel makes entry and exit easier while enhancing comfort and feel. The tach is new, as are the clock, Wonderbar radio, wiring harnesses, seat covers, carpeting, door panels, sun visors, window cranks and even the gas pedal. That means everything looks great and it all works. Yet, to demonstrate the appropriate reverence for this true classic, the original spinner wheel covers were retained to preserve the look and character of the car. Corvette fans may wonder what became of the rest of the original parts. Fear not! As a special bonus, three large bins are included brimming with rare items like a swap meet treasure chest. Youll find such valuables as the radio, trunk emblem, steering wheel, tail lights, tach, clutch fan, and much more -- even a box of bolts. This is a very special 1961 Chevrolet Corvette for the meticulous driver. Its more than beautiful enough to show, but you can drive it with confidence and enjoy a Corvette the way it was meant to be enjoyed. See detailed photos at www.maxmotive.com.
