Seller Note

In 1961, the Corvette could be ordered with two fuel-injected versions of the 283-cu.in. V-8. This Corvette has the more powerful of the two, rated at 315 horsepower. Both the engine and its Rochester mechanical fuel injection unit are said to be original to the car, and both were rebuilt during the restoration. The engine has the correct CS coding, and the fuel-injection system wears a tag with its serial number. The engine pad is correctly dated and coded, with the proper broach marks, and also includes the proper partial VIN stamping that identifies the block as being original to the car.  The four-speed manual transmission has also been rebuilt, and is linked to an optional Positraction rear. No leaks are reported from the powertrain. The engine bay presents as stock, fully detailed and impressively clean.
