These two Chevrolet Corvette’s are not your typical garage find. Nope! They were quite the show stoppers at Art of the Car in Kansas City, MO this past June. The detail in the trim, body work, red interiors, and more wowed the audience. You just can’t beat an “All American Legend” the classic Chevrolet Corvette.
The first Corvette rolled off the assembly line in 1953 and for 9 years Chevrolet produced one of the most popular American sports cars that still, in our opinion, continues to hold it’s own.
1961 Chevrolet Corvette F1 Convertible, owned by Cooper Weeks. Wow! Was our first reaction. You just can beat the “Roman Red” body color and matching interior. It just screams “Check Me Out”, without even turning on the engine.
This popular year of the Corvette included an increase in engine horse power from 275 to 315. A fine mesh grill design and newer exterior rear body work make the 61 stand out from the previous model.
1957 Chevrolet Corvette convertible, owned by Harry Martin. This Corvette was visually stunning in a two-toned Onyx Black and white body with rich red leather interior. A true tuxedo style Vette a favorite among many collectors. This Corvette showed off the best red interior we have seen in a while.
The 1957 Corvette was a popular year of Chevrolet production due to the enlarged V8 engine and increased horsepower offered from 220 hp to 275 hp.
