Gateway Classic Cars Houston is pleased to offer one of the most
distinctive looking classics ever designed, this gorgeous 1960
Chevrolet Corvette! The exterior is finished in Roman Red with the
white coves & a newly redone bright red interior, with the seats
recovered by Al Knox's shop out in El Paso, TX. The interior on
this vehicle shows very well. It also has the newer matching red
headliner installed in the removeable hard top, along with new
"period correct" rear glass & the newer white vinyl soft top rounds
out the overall appearance of this beauty. For the 1960 model, the
most conservative of the Corvette engines was a 230 H.P.283 engine
that included a single, four-barrel carburetor. Next in succession
of horsepower was this 245 H.P. 283 CID, a hydraulic lifter version
of the same engine that includes a dual-quad carburetor set up atop
an aluminum intake with the famed Corvette finned valve covers.
This is also paired up with a 2-speed Powerglide automatic
transmission. That is what you are seeing in this example of this
classic Corvette that we have available. The 1960 model C1 Corvette
was also the last year to include the taillights molded into the
rear fenders and gorgeous looking front grill "teeth", an iconic
look in the later year C1 Corvettes, adding to the collectability.
All this is on top of a set of old school Cragars S/S's wrapped up
with some B.F. Goodrich "g-Force Sport" rubber all the way around.
A chromed A/C compressor, power steering & power front disc brakes
are just a few more of the goodies. This one will truly not
disappoint. For more information on this 1960 Chevrolet Corvette
