The 1961 Chevrolet Corvette was formerly from the famed Homer Fitterling collection of Northern Indiana. It resided with the Fitterling family for many years and has just recently become available. The Corvette shows a well-maintained older restoration that has been carefully preserved, with many original features retained throughout.

This example is equipped with the highly desirable 315-hp, 283 cu. in., fuel-injected V-8 engine. As a $484.20 option, on top of the $3,934 base price, it is one of 1,462 Corvettes built in 1961 with this engine. The Corvette retains its original engine block, correct four-speed manual transmission, and a Posi-traction rear differential. The car also boasts a correctly coded fuel-injection unit for 1961, which has recently been professionally serviced. The distributor is also properly coded for a 315-hp engine.

This attractive Corvette is presented with wonderful chrome work that accents the beautifully presented Fawn Beige paint, with matching side coves. Adorning the exterior are factory “spinner” wheel covers, a driver’s sideview mirror, a factory hardtop, as well as a new, correct white soft top. The interior is trimmed in the factory color Fawn throughout, and is complimented by color matching seatbelts, in-dash clock, and a Wonderbar radio.

Offered at no reserve, this well-maintained and very well-driving Corvette is the ideal car to enjoy for the coming summer months.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/as19.
