Description
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!
