THE 1960 CORVETTE

In 1956, the Corvette was completely restyled and re-engineered. With the exception of a dozen items, most all in the grille, all the parts and technology was completely different from 1954. In-stead of a vacuum technology, six-cylinder engine, six volt electrical system technology, the new Corvette for 1956 was based upon electric motors, 12 volt electronics and overhead valve V-8 engine technology, with options, to generate horsepower and torque, and add comfort and con-venience, basically the same for the past 60 years.

Chevrolet was changing the markets that the Corvette appealed to. Instead of a sports roadster based upon organic design styling, the two new directions were power assisted comfort and convenience options or performance and racing packages. The purchaser could select luxury features or a high-performance competition car.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This particular 1960 Corvette was ordered with very unique performance options. These options included the 270 horsepower 283 cubic inch V-8 with dual Carter carburetors, a dual point dis-tributor, Borg Warner T-10 4 speed transmission, 4.11 positraction differential. The radio, heater, and defroster were also deleted on this particular Corvette, with just a block off plate for each where they would be on the console.

The other option that was ordered was a power operated folding top. The power operated fold-ing top, option 473, was available from 1956 thru 1962 only. Out of the 64,000 Corvettes sold during this period, only slightly more than 10 percent were sold with this option. In 1960 just 512 had this option. Very few of the 7,073 Corvettes equipped with this option survive today in working order. Making this example both rare and desirable.

Today the car is in very original order, however it has had its engine block replaced at some time in the past. A extremely practical car for various drivers events, or for any number of shows around the country. The opportunity to acquire this particular 1960 Corvette should not be missed.
