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 convenience, 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 Corvette left GM, St. Louis assembly plant in 1960. It was optioned with the 230hp carbureted power plant with a 4-speed manual transmission.

This car was acquired by the consigner a number of years ago. It has been in his care ever since and used for weekend drives and car shows. It has recently been through an extensive service with receipts on file. The engine appears to be original, being the correct specification, as shown by the engine number.

The 1960 Corvette is by all means a true American Classic. They are also extremely useable cars for a variety of motoring events. Their size and stability on the road make them great cars for weekend cruising or for driving events. Their powerful V8 engines are easy to maintain, and spares are readily available. This particular example has been lovingly cared for and is ready for road. This is a great car for the new collector, or a great addition to an established collection.
