Five-Time NCRS Top Flight Award Winner

The Corvette, introduced in 1953, soon earned the moniker “America’s sports car.” The Corvette had an enduring effect on the automotive landscape and has become among the most cherished and collected American cars of the era. The 1960 edition, represented by the car offered here, was the result of an evolution of power increases, styling changes, and motor sport successes.

This gorgeous example has been a pampered show car for over 35 years, receiving five NCRS Top Flight awards, starting in 1992. Most recently, in June 2017, it received the prestigious and highly coveted NCRS Bloomington Gold certification. The Corvette is beautifully finished in Ermine White with contrasting silver coves, complemented by a black interior. It is equipped with the desirable 283 cid, 270 hp engine, which featured an aluminum radiator and Duntov high-lift cam, and its engine number matches that of the car’s chassis number. It is fitted with a four-speed manual gearbox and Wonder Bar radio, and is accompanied by a cockpit cover, which was an optional dealer accessory. A list of casting codes and ownership history provided by the consignor also accompanies the sale, along with NCRS judging sheets and the Bloomington Gold Certificate.

Possessing an impressive combination of stunning good looks and award-winning show history, this Corvette is an ideal choice for Corvette and other shows, plus vintage sports car rallies.
