1960 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster
For consignment a very correctly restored 1960 Corvette. An older restoration done very well, that has an OEM automatic transmission currently installed by the consigner, so his wife could drive the car. Turns out she did not particularly enjoy driving it, so the original numbers matching 4-speed manual is in a crate and will be included with the sale of this car. This car has earned 2 Top Flight awards, a Duntov Award and numerous ribbons etc. Please see trunk photos for awards, and extra photos are included for the actual scoring.
Ermine White respray several years ago, presents very nicely. A matching white hardtop is currently on the car; however, the original canvas convertible top is on this car, and works flawlessly. Stainless trim, and brite work, as well as chrome on bumpers is near flawless. All lighting is clear and working as from the showroom floor. Chevrolet knockoff hubs, and Corvette hubcaps are wrapped by wide white sidewall tires to match originals and are seen on all 4 corners.
Absolutely stunning and flawless RED interior screams for you to climb inside and go for a ride. This beautiful red is also on the door panels, although they have a wonderful section of machined stainless that swoops from front of the door to the back and cradles the armrest/door pull. The dash which is the most beautifully designed aspect of this car has all necessary gauges with black fields and white lettering, surrounded by chromed bezels, and embedded into deep circles that are topped by a semicircular speedometer. All this is fronted by a 3 spoke machined big steering wheel in drilled metal and red plastic. The top of the dash is a combination of metal and some padded vinyl which has the same swooping effect as the door panels. In its way to the center console, a Wonderbar original radio is noted. Flooding the floor is gorgeous red thick pile carpeting with nary a mark.
Currently the original 283ci-270hp V8 is attached to an OEM 3-speed automatic is installed in this car. As mentioned, the original numbers matching 4-speed manual is in a crate and will ship with this car to the buyer.
It is difficult to find dust let alone any evidence of surface rust on the underside off this car. A posi-trac rear end is seen, and otherwise clean black metal is noted all over.
The recipient of an older restoration, that still looks, runs, and drives like you just finished the deal and are driving from the showroom. A 2-time top flight, 1-time Duntov award winner, along with various ribbons, documentation, original keys, owner's manual, Wonderbar radio manual, and other plaques and awards are included with this beautifully designed and presented car.
