1960 Corvette Convertible Classified Ad Details$85,000.00 Date Posted:02/03/2021 - Greeniwch, CT
One of the finest and most original 1960 Corvettes in existence! Hubert Smith ordered the Corvette from Lefever Bros. Inc. on October 9th, 1959. The car was ordered in Solid White over red, with a Powerglide transmission, deluxe heater, signal-seeking radio, power windows, white wall tires, courtesy lights, sunshades and convertible top in black. The total price of the car came to $4,519.15. Mr. Smith would keep the car for a couple of years as he loved Corvettes and had the habit to follow model upgrades. The second owner held the car until 2009, always diligently maintaining it at the selling dealer. In 2009 the car was sold back to the dealer, where I bought it.
The car has only covered 68,290 pampered miles. The original paint is in phenomenal condition, showing a slight level of charming patina only under close inspection. The chrome and stainless also appear to be original and have been superbly preserved. In the cockpit, the seat covers, and carpet have been replaced with correct materials that match the original specification, while the door panels and dash are in amazing shape. Under the hood, the engine and its surroundings have also been incredibly preserved with factory decals and markings present throughout. The car is well sorted and "on the button". This Corvette possesses an extensive history file containing the original order form, window sticker, service records, keys, books and manuals.
With only a few surfaces in the interior and the top having been replaced, this Corvette is in unbelievably original and outstanding condition; a true testament to the love and care that it received throughout its life. Having been absent from the national show circuit all of its life, this American icon is primed to earn its new owner a case full of trophies and ribbons. An opportunity to acquire an early Corvette of this caliber is indeed a rarity.
