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.

  1. My favorite Corvette. Last of the 283’s. A friend of mine had one in college. A 283 fuel is 315 HP. When he drove thru campus, classmates stopped to look and listen. It rumbled.

  2. HAD 315 FUELIE ON MY 17TH BIRTHDAY 4 SPEED & 411 REAR AWESOME CAR SAVED UP TO BUY IT .

  3. written by today’s typical erred auto journalist….the fuelies were 275 hp and 315 hp …the 270 hp belonged to a dual quad engine–nobody proof reads anything anymore resulting in flawed information in EVERY article
