1961 Corvette | Sports Car


1961 Corvette. There were more choices under the hood in 1961. The 283 now came in five different versions: from a 230 horsepower single four barrel version all the way up to 315 horses. The 270 and 315 horse engines were fuel injected. The three speed manual transmission was now standard with a four speed box an option for this awesome sports car.

    I had one just like it in 1963. Dangerous car but fun.

    Aluminum cylinder heads were also available, but became subject to a recall due to poor casting.
