Great from Top to Bottom
The paint on this Corvette in Tuxedo Black with White Coves makes it look almost as nice it did when the car was at the Chevy dealership in 1960. The black/white color combination was one of the most elegant for C-1s.
The chrome trim (bumpers, grill, etc.) is all in excellent condition.
The underside of this Corvette appears solid and sound with no evidence of other than minor surface corrosion.
And the Tuxedo Black hardtop is in very nice condition.
The red interior is clean and fresh-looking, and as one would expect, the upholstery is free of rips, holes or separations.
The gauges all work properly as do the lights, turn signals wipers and horn. The clock, however, seems stuck in 1960.
The car has its original 283/230 Corvette V-8 cylinder engine, which gives it such great performance. At the turn of the key the engine comes to life and produces the distinctive rumble through a recently installed (11/19) exhaust system.
The rebuilt automatic transmission works smoothly and properly; and in city driving or in traffic, the automatic is the way to go.
The recently (11/19) rebuilt braking system on the Corvette brings it to a quick halt without any pulling from side to side.
This Corvette will please the most discerning buyer:
A Great Example of Corvette’s Iconic C-1 Convertible
There is one word that can best describe this 1960 convertible: WOW! Nice paint, excellent upholstery, original engine with rebuilt transmission and brakes: all of which make this classic Corvette an enjoyable car to drive as well as an appreciating investment. What can’t be quantified is the feeling one gets when sitting behind the wheel of the C-1 Corvette that is dreamed about by so many other car enthusiasts but owned by so few.

As if a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette isn’t racy enough, the Pick of the Day boosts it up a notch with a “Grand Sport” replica body kit that emulates the race cars that GM sponsored briefly in the 1960s, as originally envisioned by the legendary Corvette guru Zora Arkus Duntov. This wild-looking roadster is a “street […]
The much-anticipated and now rolling-off-the-assembly-line mid-engine C8 edition of the Chevrolet Corvette is one of those cars considered to be an instant classic. But with the engine now located behind rather than in front of the driver, it should be a good time for even long-time Corvette owners to go back to school. Driving school, […]
