Here we have a beautiful and original 1960 Chevrolet Corvette that's still wearing its original Roman Red paint! It's a 4-speed manual with a 283 cubic inch V8 and fuel injection and has just under 60,000 miles on the odometer This car is a survivor and has never been restored.
This is a first generation Corvette (C1) which ran from years 1953 to 1962.
51.9% of Corvettes were fitted with a 4-speed manual transmission in 1960. The 3-speed manual transmission was actually the standard offering for the car, so that's a lot of people that opted to pay the $188 to upgrade to a 4-speed.
There was a choice of 8 exterior finishes this year: black, white, turquoise, blue, silver, green, red and maroon. The cove was available in either silver or white.
Chevrolet produced 10,261 Corvettes for 1960 with a base price of $3872. Only 1,529 of these cars were produced in Roman Red and black interior combination and only about 100 had the fuel injection option - making this a very desirable, and collectable car.
