1960 Chevrolet Corvette General Facts

The 1960 Corvette was very similar to the 1959 model. Aluminum radiators were installed on 270 horsepower and 290 horsepower Corvettes. The aluminum head engines that were advertised as code "DH" were too hard to manufacture and did not make it into the main production run. All engines except the base included cast alloy valve covers with 7 fins. The base engine included plain painted steel valve covers with the Chevrolet script. The front sway bar had an increase in diameter and a new rear sway bar was added to improve the handling of the car. Also a new aluminum clutch housing reduced the weight of the car by 18 pounds. All 1960 Corvettes with fuel injection required a manual transmission, earlier models allowed an automatic with the lower horsepower fuel injected engines. Fifteen of the 1960 production run were non-standard colors or primer. The passenger grab bar and storage bin from the previous year are still included.

More Info About This Original 1960 Chevy Corvette

It is our opinion the second owner loved this car and decided to drive it. So, one of the first things he did was purchase a Chevy 350 crate engine and have it installed along with many era correct new parts such as a larger aluminum radiator. This car also has new tires, brakes, shocks, and much more and has been gone through to be sure it is a street ready and is an long distance any weather car.

The second owner took meticulous care to preserve the running in good condition original matching number engine along with its dule quad holly factory carburetors.

Since we purchased this American icon we have also completed a 101 point inspection and rejuvenation in all areas and had car professionally gone over entirely and add improvements as was needed to make this one of the most rare C1-Corvettes in the world that is in original condition in clouding the factory paint.
