1960 Chevrolet Corvette
You're bidding on a true barn find from Utah a 1960 Corvette Convertible with a numbers matching engine.
At one timethis 1960 Corvette was a show car that took a lot of trophies for a lady named Miss Salt in Utah. She loved and drove this car to car shows all over the country untilshe could no longer afford to keep the car show worthy. She parked the car in a barn on a relatives farm where it sat for years. . I purchased the carat a "car show" in Boulder NV from arepresentative of the relativewhereit was setting in their barn in Utahgatheringdust.
Not a quality show car anymore but it's not far from it andit still had a lot of lookers at the show I purchased it from.. Its a fantastic little car with no major problems or stories, just a great little vintage Corvette that needs to be restored to it's original luster.

Tranny T-10 Borg Warner
Engine/ Tranny Runs,startsand drives well
The engine has the original Corvette inscribed valve coversand starts and runs well with most all of its original equipment in place.Leaks a little oil here and there nothing serious considering the age.The distributor is the only update for cleaner starts. I do not have the original distributor. The heater hose wasdisconnected for purposes unknown but was left as it was toavoid any additional heat transfer from the heated water circulating thru the cabin because of 102 to 118 degree summers we experience in the summers here Las Vegas.
1) The clutch and pressure plate and throw out bearing were recently replaced.
2) The gas tank was replaced with the partitioned model to avoid slushing.
3)The brakes work well and thecarhas an excellent drivetrain that runs and drives well for it's age.
4)The mufflers were replaced with glass packs to give it sound a little more aggressive.
5)The frame is practically rust free with very little surface rust.
The interior is good shape with new carpet. The passenger upper glove box grab bar and thecurved inwardCorvettesash is new. The buckets seatwere reupholstered with new foam from Eckler's but the upholstery company used the wrong shade of red on the covers. However to correct this I have included in this offer is a brand new set of original red bucket covers from Eckler's. The digital radio works but doesn't sound very well.I think itsa speakerissue.
The Body color of the car is the original scheme of red and whitebut was repainted some years ago. The paint shows minor scratches and paint imperfections but still has a beautiful luster and shines well.
The fiber glass body itself is in great shape with no major injuries except for the small "common to all corvettes of this vintage" are stress cracks in the front fenders where they are joined.More prevalent on the passenger side of the car and not as noticeable on the drivers side. There is a small chip in the rear, under the bumper on the splash pan and a very small crack in the trunk rim at the bottom right side just above the rear right bumper. The crack is only visible if thetrunk is open
New Parts Installed:
1) All new ID Badges
2) All newchrome teethin the grill
3) New Tail light housings and lens
4) Reflector / turn signals
5)Steering Wheel 13 inch. Original is still available.

All of theCorvette badges front and backwere age cracked and replaced aswas all thefront grill teeth. The tail light lensand housings are new. The littlereflectors on the rear under the taillights are LED blinkers not static as was the original.The front license plate bracketis included but needs work...
The windshield has minor scratches and is needing a complete replacement glass gasket. Windows are in good shape row up and down again for the age and no cracks. Wipers work horn blows loud.
1) The convertible top is in good shape with worn seals. The canvas has a very small hole in the driver side where a screw driver slipped off tightening the seam top trim seal. The metal frame for the cloth top is also in good shape and is complete.
2) The hard top is in good condition with worn seals and the rear plexi glass has a few scratches in it. The hardtopside quarter glass is in good condition. The underside of the top is red and has a small hand print size stain I couldn't remove.
Tires/ Wheels / Trunk:
The white wall tires look great on the carandshow a lot of use. These tiresand wheels are ones on it when removed from the barn. Please Note.The white wall tires and spinner hub caps with the original red rims are what you are bidding on. The mags in the photos were used to give it a more aggressive look and feel just for fun but have been removed and are not available in this offer. The trunk is in excellent condition and all the compartment looks surprising new for its age. The red rubber spar tire cover in the trunk is also new..

Please note: "This is truly a "barn find car" and can be documented".

Normally these placards are found up in front of the car on the ground for all to see.
