For Sale: 1960 Chevrolet Corvette in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1960 Chevrolet Corvette has one of the most iconic color combos around for a first-generation Vette. And this has a terrific story of long-term care. That's why you have a meticulous restoration that has this looking radiant everywhere from the whitewall tires to the dual-quad V8 to the

This is the exact kind of story you want your classic to have. This is coming off of nearly 50 years of ownership. It's the car the consignor bought as a reward when coming out of the service. And when you keep a car for virtually half a century, you make sure to treat it right. So not only does that mean decades of care, but also this received a recent multi-year restoration. The Roman Red has a show-worthy level of shine, and this deep gloss loves to let the sunshine roll evenly across the cures of the excellent body panels. It's also hard not to love a car that has a patriotic background that carries a paint theme as all-American as a Coca-Cola bottle. That's what you get with the white side coves and coordinating wide whitewalls against the cherry red. And so this is a convertible that even looks awesome with the white roof in place. And when a car is restored to this level it also means all the best brightwork is shining brightly, including toothy-grille, two-piece front bumpers, and two-piece rear with integrated exhaust. It is the detailed car that you instantly can tell has been cherished.

The red bucket seat interior so nicely matches the exterior color to give this convertible a seamless appearance in the sunshine. Beautiful bucket seats, a smooth dash, dual weave carpet, and bright door panels are all part of a solid investment in a time capsule style with an absolutely fresh feel. And there's just something special about how the stick shift, tach, and grip of the steering wheel get your heart racing.

Under the hood is a 283 cubic inch V8, and between the correct suffix code and long-term ownership, it's hard to believe this is anything but the original powerhouse. It really looks impressively vintage everywhere from the GM hoses to the finned Corvette script valve covers. And underneath the wide and shining air grabber are dual Carter four-barrel carburetors for proper C1 power. The care and investments make for a motor that fires up nicely for the feeling of a classic Corvette that you can confidently enjoy on the road. Plus, the control of the four-speed manual transmission and the howl of the dual exhaust is an intoxicating symphony for the senses.

This is the first-gen Corvette that has an outstanding presentation and an outstanding story to tell. So don't miss your chance at one of the most all-around awesome classics around. Call now!
