Take a close look at this Corvette. This 1960 245hp 4-speed model has been through an extensive frame-off restoration by Ken Carlson of Sun Country Corvettes in Arizona. This high dollar restoration was completed in 2008 and subsequently achieved NCRS Top Flight status in 2009. It's that kind of Corvette.

This is believed to be a 3-owner car, with the second owner storing it in a barn from the early 70's until 2002. It was still in nice shape when removed, which made it a solid candidate for restoration. This was as a total nut-and-bolt restoration right down to shim marks, shim tape, stencils, inspection marks, decals, etc. The entire process is very well documented and summarized in a binder full of photos and receipts. This high-level effort included great attention towards retaining original or OEM parts with correct part numbers and date codes. The spectacular result produced a Top Flight award in June, 2009 (judging paperwork is included).

The restoration was true to the car's original color and options, retaining the desirable red / white exterior and red interior colors. Options include a Wonder Bar radio, heater, sunshades, and courtesy lights. There is a red hard top as well. The engine is the 283ci 245hp dual quad setup. The engine was restamped and has the correct date code. The T-10 4-speed transmission and 3.70 Positraction rear end are correct as well.

I could go on and on about the work that has been done to this car but I think the Top Flight award sums it up. The car is in great mechanical condition but has almost no miles since the restoration. This is a special car that will appeal to any Corvette purist.
