  • By 1961, the Corvette had become a full circle sports car after having graduated from its six-cylinder GT roots since its launch in 1953. The 283 cubic inch V8 was available with a twin four-barrel carburetor intake. This “Dual Quad” setup increased power output to 270 hp and would only be featured on 2,827 1961 Corvettes. Independent front suspension kept handling in check and allowed the Corvette to run in circles with some of the finest marques from Europe on both the road and the track. The styling was purely American, with loads of chrome and classic roadster lines keeping with the Corvette’s sporty appearance. It was the last of the first generation Corvettes to feature two-tone paint with contrasting coves, and it is no wonder why the 1961 model is still so highly prized by collectors and enthusiasts across the globe.

    The 1961 Chevrolet Corvette 283/270 HP “Dual Quad” Roadster featured here is finished in classic and desirable Tuxedo Black with silver coves and a gorgeous dark red interior. This magnificent motorcar is among one of the finest examples we have had the pleasure of offering in many years. A concours level restoration was recently performed to NCRS standards making this Corvette the perfect example to add to any prominent collection. It comes finished in one of the most sought-after color combinations and is fitted with a 283/270 HP Dual Quad engine, one of the most desirable engine packages. We are pleased to offer this investment-grade 1961 Chevrolet Corvette 283/270 HP “Dual Quad” Roadster to the most demanding collector, investor or enthusiast who only wants the best. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
