Debuting in 1953, the Corvette forever cemented Chevrolet as the maker of America's signature sports car. While the eighth generation is something to behold with its mid-engined layout and exotic looks, every single generation before that also carries something special. For example, this 1960 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is special because it comes from the first generation that spawned it all. Why not buy this lovely example that's said to have undergone a partial restoration in 2019 and bears less than 2,000 miles since. At the time, the odometer is said to have read 91,368 before being reset as the car received a new lease of life.
Sporting a lovely Signet Red paint job, this 1960 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible will stand out for miles, regardless of where you park it. Its beautiful lines were penned by none other than the legendary Harley Earl. Riding on modern steel-belted radials installed in 2019, you also receive an extra set of bias-ply tires with the sale. While this 'Vette is a convertible, the current owner discloses that the soft top needs to be changed. Fortunately, a white-painted hardtop is also included in the sale, so you can immediately enjoy your new purchase. The interior of this 1960 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is also red and reported to be completely new, with Al Knoch components. Furthermore, it received a repaint in Roman Red around 2019. The gauges, clock, and radio are all said to have been rebuilt, making this 'Vette one that you can enjoy almost like it left the factory yesterday. Doesn't it look inviting? Imagine yourself in the driver's seat, gently gripping the wheel and steering this beauty down a country road with the V8's grumbly note for company.
Talking of the V8, this 1960 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible has a 283ci unit that pushed out 230 horsepower when new. The current owner reports that the engine bay has been professionally cleaned and repainted, which is why it looks great. It's not all cosmetics, though. Plenty of work has gone into the mechanicals. This includes a new clutch and rebalanced flywheel, a carburetor rebuilt to NCRS specs, jet-coated Ramhorn exhaust manifolds, and a recent radiator recoring. The front, interior, and rear wiring harnesses are all new, there's a new gas tank, and the oil filter was changed in November 2022, along with a lubing of the grease joints. Ready to hit the road, we say!
