  • Desirable Roman Red with White coves
  • Four-speed manual transmission


Thanks to new sway bars and an aluminum clutch, continued work by famed GM engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov advanced the 1960 Chevrolet Corvette into a truly competitive automobile. Customers had a choice of small-block 283 cu. in. V-8 engines ranging from 230 to 315 bhp, mated to either a two-speed Powerglide automatic, three-speed manual, or optional four-speed manual transmissions.

This example is finished in Roman Red with White coves, matching red interior, period-correct wide whitewall tyres, and a four-speed manual transmission. It is one of 10,261 Corvettes produced at GM's St Louis, Missouri, facility for 1960. At some point, the car lost its original chassis number tag, a common problem for 1960 Corvettes, and was issued a new VIN (in accordance with its original chassis number, 00867S104149) by the Government of Alberta Ministry of Transportation in Canada. Exported to Europe and subsequently registered in Portugal in 2004, this is a quintessential example of 'America's sports car'.



  • Emblem�tica combina��o vermelho Roman e flancos brancos

  • Caixa manual de quatro velocidades


Gra�as ao continuo desenvolvimento t�cnico providenciado pelo famoso engenheiro da GM, Zora Arkus Duntov �e � ado��o de novas barras estabilizadoras e embraiagem em alum�nio � o Corvette de 1960 tornou-se um autom�vel realmente competitivo.
Os clientes podiam escolher v�rias especifica��es do V8 'small block' de 283 polegadas c�bicas (ou 4638 cc). As pot�ncias variavam entre os 230 e os 315 cavalos, transmitidos �s rodas traseiras por interm�dio da caixa autom�tica Powerglide de duas velocidades, da caixa manual de tr�s velocidade ou, opcionalmente, da caixa manual de quatro velocidades.

Este exemplar est� pintado em vermelho Roman, com flancos brancos e interior encarnado a combinar. Tem pneus de faixa branca corretos para a �poca e caixa de quatro velocidades.
Trata-se um de 10.261 Corvette produzidos pela GM, na sua f�brica de St. Louis, no Missouri, em 1960. A dada altura, este exemplar perdeu a sua chapa original com o n�mero de chassis, um problema comum nos Corvette de 1960. Foi, por isso, emitido um novo VIN (de acordo com o n�mero de chassis original: 00867S104149), pelo Minist�rio dos Transportes do Governo de Alberta, no Canad�. Importado para a Europa, foi matriculado em Portugal no ano de 2004. Permanece um not�vel exemplar do ic�nico "desportivo americano".To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
