Vehicle Description

This 1960 Chevrolet Corvette was delivered new at Konner Chevrolet in Caldwell, New Jersey in the fall of 1960. Optioned with the heavy-duty brake and suspension package, the car was first raced by Bob Wasserman in a four-hour endurance race at Vineland Speedway in New Jersey, earning it third place. Soon after the podium finish, the car was sold to the first owner, Steve Elfenbein, who successfully campaigned it in the SCCA Northeast Division from 1961 through 1970, winning class championships in hillclimbs and road racing. Power comes from a swapped 327ci V8 with dual four-barrel carburetors paired with a Muncie four-speed manual transmission and a 4.11:1 Positraction rear end. Following nearly two decades in storage, the Corvette was recommissioned by Elfenbein in the late 1980s, color changed from blue to red, and driven on the street until his passing in 2004. Jeff Reade of American Motoring Memories in Culver City, California was commissioned to restore the car in 2013 in the spirit of its 1960s racing specification. This C1 is now offered on behalf of the current owner by the selling dealer in Oceanside, California with its window sticker, invoices, time sheets, trophies, period photography, removed parts, Historic Motor Sports Association logbook, and a clean Arizona title.
