1960 Chevrolet Corvette Survivor

Nov 21, 2023 | Past Cars

This particular 1960 Chevrolet Corvette is a “survivor,” which means it has all original parts and matching numbers.

The 1960 Chevrolet Corvette is visually unchanged form the 1959 model year. Color options were Roman Red, Honduras Maroon, Ermine White, Sateen Silver, Tasco Turquoise, Tuxedo Black, Horizon Blue, and Cascade Green. Convertible top colors were black, blue, red, and turquoise.

A little over 500 Corvettes for this year were optioned with power windows, while 512 were selected with a power convertible soft top.

Engine options were largely carried over from the 1959 model year. All were versions of the 283 cid Chevy small-block V-8, and there were as many as seven configurations, ranging from the base 230hp model with a single four-barrel carburetor, all the way up to a 315 hp model that utilized fuel injection and a high-lift camshaft.

Transmission options continued to be a 2-speed automatic, 3-speed manual and 4-speed manual. All fuel-injected models came with a manual transmission and were not available with an automatic.
