1961 Chevrolet Corvette Description

I am the second owner since original family ownership, except for dealer who purchased it as a newly completed frame off restoration in 2015. Restoration added Vintage Air conditioning, Steeroids Rack & Pinion power steering, front disc brakes, new Wonderbar Radio by Antique Automobile Radios. Original motor, T-10 4 speed installed during my ownership in 2017, replacing original Powerglide automatic, correct original factory style shifter. Everything works except interior lights! I have pictures of the restoration.
