Many people today enjoy the comfort, handling, and driveability of the later Corvettes. Others savor the lines, styling, and character of the earlier, straight-axle models. Some blessed folks get to have both! The Corvette Clinic was commissioned to bind the styling and persona of this ’61 Corvette with the handling and power of a Corvette one tenth its age. We decided to follow along on the buildup.

Such a swap has several benefits. First, you get to enjoy your Corvette’s new-found driveability, handling, power, safety, and reliability while the original chassis and engine quietly bide the time in storage, protecting them from the mileage and ravages of the open road. If you ever decide that an original Corvette better suits your changing lifestyle, the original chassis can be ordered back into service—truly, the best of both worlds.
