The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!

1995 CORVETTE ZR-1

The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.

Classic Car Overview

1960 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Gracing our overstuffed but hallowed halls here at the Classic Auto Mall we give you a well restored 1960 Corvette. Judged at 95 points by the NCRS only losing points for some items that have been corrected such as the distributor, generator, and trunk accoutrements all of which have been corrected. But also losing points for paint being too good as per the NCRS judges and the undercarriage being shiny black. Either way, this writer loves a C1 Corvette, and this car is simply no exception. Exterior Bathed in an Ermine White better than new respray that glistens with appeal, this 1960 Corvette has an Ermine White cove, matching Ermine White hardtop, (with correct date coded glass), and correct white canvas soft top with a plastic rear window. All chrome is showing in perfect condition and our eyes are drawn to the final year chrome toothy grill that glistens and reflects beautifully. Around back we are greeted with the final year taillights that are rounded into the rear quarter. Twin chrome rear bumpers bring up the tail of the car and the correct exhaust exits through each bumper section. Whitewall radial tires adorn all 4 corners and wrap 15 steel wheels with correct Corvette hubcaps with spinner centers. Interior Stunning, flawless, mind blowing are just a few words to describe this interior. Turquoise, however, is the best way to sum it up. One of only 1078 Corvettes produced in 1960 with this interior color and I must say its rather stunning. This beautiful Turquoise is also on the door panels, although they have a wonderful section of machined stainless that swoops from front of the door to the back and cradles the armrest/door pull. The dash which is the most beautifully designed aspect of this car has all necessary gauges with black fields and white lettering, surrounded by chromed bezels, and embedded into deep circles that are topped by a semicircular speedometer. All this is fronted by a 3 spoke machined big steering wheel in drilled metal and Turquoise plastic. The top of the dash is a combination of metal and some padded vinyl which has the same swooping effect as the door panels. On its way to the center console, a Wonderbar original radio is noted along with a clock. Flooding the floor is a gorgeous turquoise and black pile carpeting with minor fading and Turquoise Corvette floormats. A chrome shifter surround and shifter arm with a white ball topper sits proudly in the center of the driveshaft hump between the seats. Drivetrain Here is where we get down to the peanut butter without all the fluff. Opening the forward hinged hood, we are greeted with a number matching, Chevrolet Orange painted engine. 283ci of it to be exact, with a solid lifter camshaft and 2 4bbl Carter carburetors. The block carries the correct casting # of 375659, casting date of G190 (July 19th, 1960), a stamping code of F0728CU 110064 (Flint July 28th 1960, 283ci V8 270hp manual transmission). The Carter carbs carry their correct stamping numbers of 2613S and 2614S F0 (May 1960), on the front and back respectively and are perched atop a dual quad intake manifold with a 3739653 casting number. All correct so far! We spy a distributor with a part number of 1110891 (correct but not date code correct) and a generator with a part number of 1102043 (again correct but not date code correct). 7 ribbed valve covers, and a louvered air cleaner assembly round out the top of the engine. All this correct bling is mated to a correct Borg Warner T-10 4-speed manual transmission. Pulling the power to the ground is a correct rear axle assembly with a 3743833 casting number, G80 casting date (June 8th 1960), and an AN 722 stamping code (3.70 limited slip, July 22nd). Undercarriage Uber clean down here, according to the NCRS judges the undercarriage is too shiny and that is clearly seen in the pictures, along with some black paint on the brake lines, fuel lines, and parking brake cables. Nary a hint of rust anywhere down here to speak of. Independent coil spring suspension gives us the ride up front while leaf springs provide the ride in the rear. Drum brakes are noted all around and provide adequate stopping ability for this work of art. Drive-Ability This writer loves 2-seater cars and while Im drawn to the British sports cars I will never pass up the opportunity to drive a C1 Corvette. After wedging myself behind the fixed position rather large steering wheel a few pumps of the gas pedal, a twist of the key and the 283ci V8 roared to life. The mechanical camshaft valve train was music to my ears. The car handled our test track swimmingly with wonderful acceleration, bias free panic braking, and good handling thanks in part to the upgraded radial tires. All functions were working properly, and the Turquoise interior made my brain swim with retro thoughts. Whats more to say... A NCRS 95 point judged car only needing a few minor changes to make it nearly perfect. Ermine White with Turquoise inside along with a hardtop and soft top for all weather cruising. The recipient of a frame off restoration in 1997 along with a stock class Best of Show winner at the Thunder on The Boardwalk Wildwood, New Jersey show and this car screams excellence. Head on down to the Classic Auto Mall, feast your eyes on this beauty, and be ready to park her in your garage!
