I purchased my 1961 Corvette, in May of 2019. The ‘Vette is powered by a 283 cubic inch small block Chevy engine that is topped with a 4-Barrel carburetor. The rest of the drivetrain includes a Borg-Warner T10 4-speed transmission and Positraction Rear. The engine is a replacement with correct date codes but not the original to the car.
My plan is frame-on resto-mod. Keeping it as original appearing as possible while adding modern enhancements like power disc brakes, power steering, possibly Vintage Air. Plans also call for rebuilding the seats, replacing the carpets.
