And this classic gem has well over $100,000 invested in it.
This immaculate 1961 Chevrolet Corvette convertible spent its entire life with just one dedicated family since it first rolled off the factory assembly line. This stunning classic is ready to find its second home. After six long decades under one roof, it's time for new adventures.
This example is just 1 of 385, so it's safe to say that this vintage 'Vette is pretty rare. In other words, most people probably don't see one one like this in their day-to-day activities. And with a restored cost of well over $100,000, one would also be hard-pressed to find one nicer.
The '61 model year was the last time GM offered the contrasting two-tone paint, with this one slathered in elusive Ermine White with silver coves. Factory two-tone paint wasn't offered again until 1978. Also, this classic comes with a matching factory hardtop. Inside, a full black interior shows just as beautiful as its exterior, and it comes equipped with a Wonderbar radio.
A tail-boat design was implemented in 1961, and it would later be used on the C2. Even more, this is the first year to feature four taillights, a distinct feature still found modern models.
