It was purchased on June 20th, 2000 by its last owner who lives in Barrington, RI. This gentleman treated the car to the best of care during his 23 years of ownership. It was primary used as an occasional driver and show car. The exterior appearance is simply stunning with its stylish design and beautiful color combination. The body is very straight with excellent gap lines throughout. It was re-finished its original factory correct color of Horizon Blue with Ermine White coves. The ocean deep paint was recently detailed to a brilliant shine. It was outfitted with a brand new white soft top that was stamped with April 1960 date. The front windshield and door glass is new with stamps. Everything on the exterior was restored or replaced such as the glass trim, driverís side mirror, fender trim and headlight bezels, front grill, front split bumpers, license plate frame, door handles, cove trim, antenna, rear tail light bezels and lenses, rear spilt bumpers and emblems throughout. Itís equipped with quadruple T-3 headlights. The car sits perfectly on 15Ē blue painted steel wheels with Spinner hub caps. The wheels are wrapped with American Classic 6.70-R15 whitewall tires. An extra set of 15Ē blue painted steel wheels with B.F. Goodrich Silvertown 6.70-15 4 ply whitewall tires are included for judging purposes. The interior was restored in its original factory correct color of Frost Blue which is gorgeous especially with a matching exterior. The blue padded and painted dash houses the factory black gauges. The three-spoke steering wheel frames a sweeping 160-mph speedometer and tachometer. The cabin features two bucket seats, a dash-mounted rear view mirror, seat belts, carpeted floor mats and an Antique Automobile 1959-1960 Corvette Wonderbar AM/FM/Bluetooth radio. The fully restored trunk compartment has a correct style rubber trunk mat. Itís equipped with a full spare tire along with a jack and tools. The engine compartment is highly detailed with many correct parts. Itís powered by a date correct 283/270hp V8 engine. It was completely rebuilt with the correct Duntov high performance cam shaft and solid lifters. Itís outfitted with the two Carter WCFB 4-bbl carburetors. The engine is cooled by the top tank radiator which is unique to the 1960 model year. Itís also equipped with a temperature controlled radiator fan which is a unique option for 1960 model year. The engine breathes through a correct high performance exhaust system with front crossover. The rear tail pipes were slightly extended through the rear split bumpers to keep it clean. The engine is coupled to a T-10 4-speed transmission and positraction rear axle with 3.70 gears. The undercarriage is also highly detailed with many correct parts. The rear stabilizer bar was first introduced in 1960. Some additional items including a car cover are included.
