INAUGURAL 2023 NEW ORLEANS AUCTION: 1961 CHEVROLET CORVETTE 283/245 CONVERTIBLE – NO RESERVE

This 1961 Chevrolet Corvette convertible is a two-time NCRS Top Flight Award winner and is powered by a matching-numbers 283ci V8 engine with a dual 4-barrel carburetor (CU code) producing 245hp, paired with a T10 4-speed manual transmission. It is equipped with 7-finned cast valve covers and is finished in Tuxedo Black with black coves over a black interior.

This previously restored triple-black Corvette features the Wonder Bar AM radio, windshield washers, sunshades, courtesy light and package tray. It rolls on wide whitewall bias-belted tires with stainless knock-off caps. The 1961 Corvette had many firsts for this model and was the final year for the dual-quad and the 283ci V8 engine. This is the first year with the aluminum radiator as standard equipment, as well as the first year for under-car exhaust. A binder of receipts and owner history comes with the purchase. Offered with No Reserve during the inaugural Barrett-Jackson New Orleans Auction, September 28-30.
