This 1960 Corvette is one striking total package. An attractive
color combo with plenty of bright chrome makes quite an impression
on the outside. And the black interior is the ideal color combo for
this drop-top. But what really makes this one exceptionally
desirable is that the numbers-matching V8 has been upgraded with a
period-correct Rochester fuel injection. So you can have a
correct-style C1 that's also a ton of fun.
Ermine White is exactly what you want on a first-generation
Corvette. After all, it is the color that launched the legend. But
this one is out to be a legend of its own, and so you get a nice
custom touch with the silver and purple pinstriping. It doesn't
take away from the classic C1 style, but instead, it just
tastefully enhances the true cruiser fun... and that's the
underlying theme of the whole car. After all, you still get all the
intricate style you love on the 1960 car, like the toothy grille,
trim around the side covers, and the sleek finish showing off the
curvy body. And there's shining chrome on the twin wraparound
bumpers front and rear - with the exhaust routed through the rear
ones. It's well-detailed right down to the fuel injection badging
and redline bias-ply tires.
The white convertible top is so close to color-matched that it
looks quite stylish. But on a C1, we all know the most fun is had
when the top is down. And there's just something timelessly
attractive about a white convertible with a black interior. It's
like this Corvette is dressed in formalwear. There was a solid
investment here to make sure everything looks great and feels
comfortable. And while the presentation is dark and supple, it also
lets the brightwork stand out even more. There's a healthy dose of
brightwork on the door panels, dash, and steering wheel and it's
all complete and shining like a good classic should. It's a highly
vintage style where it's hard to spot the upgrades. But you have a
few worthwhile additions like the Kenwood AM/FM digital tuner with
cassette and a leather wrap to the steering wheel.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 283 cubic inch V8.
Everything from the finned Corvette valve covers to the Delco-Remy
generator have the clean look of a classic style. But what really
takes center stage is the Rochester mechanical fuel injection
system. It has such a correct style presentation - right down to
the tags - that it will be up to you to tell other enthusiasts that
it's an upgrade. Plus, the control of the four-speed manual
transmission and the howl of the dual exhaust is an intoxicating
symphony for the senses. So you know this has the right recipe for
classic car enjoyment.
The C1 Corvette is an icon, and so rarely will you get a chance at
a number-matching car that has been upgraded to something so
distinct. Don't wait, call today!
