  • Bob's 61 Corvette "Lot of pics"

    Working at a junkyard has it's advantages... Today I met a super cool guy named Bob.
    He let me take some pics of his 61 Vette that he bought brand new in 1961 for $3400!
    It's a dual quad 283 4spd car with a set of aftermarket Thrush side pipes I haven't seen in yrs.
    He drives the car daily, & is not afraid to get rough with it, no trailer queen here. :cD































    Bob, if you are reading this post, thanks for the great opportunity to view a truly classic & very cool daily driver!

            Those wheel covers....ugh!

            When I worked at a junkyard 30 years ago, the boss had a 61 vette. It had a funky nose added onto it, supposed to make it look like the XP 700, but didn't look nearly that nice--the body lines over the headlights didn't match up, etc.



            I threw together a junkyard 283 and got the car running and driving for him. No, I don't have any pictures. Film was expensive back then.

              Almost looks like the Vette from the cheesy 60's film, 'Hot Rods to Hell'...

                  Cars like that are the best in the world. I'm sure there's some Corvette guy just drooling to "restore" it and loose all that history. The stories that car could tell ;D Thanks for posting the pixs. ;D ;D ;D

                    Cars like that have tons of character, & I'm glad Bob let me take pics of his car.
                    There was some old faded lettering on the decklid that looked really cool too!
