A timeless for Spring: The 1961 Chevrolet Corvette.
Fact be told, I was never ever a huge fan of vehicles made of what is essentially a formed bonded plastic– Fiberglass is for boats, not cars and trucks! They squeak, rattle, and creak like an old sailing ship. Years in the future, carbon fiber and Aluminum will do a better job with less weight and higher tensile strength.
It doesn’t matter.
About the 283 engine: The power output for the fuel-injected engine was 275 hp. The replacement 327 engine in this automobile was readily available in later years and makes 315 hp.
This vehicle since this writing is bid to $61 k; they can go for as much as $150 k
I was never a big Corvette-head– I admired them, and I really like the new one– but this one, produced in the year I was born, I would add to the stable of horses in the barn.
