1960 CHEVROLET CORVETTE
I AM THE SECOND OWNER OF THIS ONE OF A KIND OUTRAGEOUS 1960 CORVETTE. OVER 200 BODY MODIFICATIONS HAVE BEEN MADE TO THE ORIGINAL BODY. NO KIT CAR HERE FOLKS.
THE CROWNING JEWEL OF THIS BUILD IS THE $$$ ONE OFF CUSTOM LEATHER INTERIOR HAND CRAFTED BY ONE OF THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS. THE INTERIOR AND TRUNK HAVE HUNDREDS OF HOURS IN FIBERGLASS WORK ALONE NOT TO MENTION THE ONE OF A KIND CUSTOM SEATS THAT ARE A PLEASURE TO SIT IN. THE AUTO METER GAUGES ARESURROUNDED BY A ONE OFF POLISHED BILLET DASH PANEL AS WELL AS THE ONE OFF POLISHED SHIFTER CONSOLE WITH THE TOUCH N GO START BUTTON. IT ALSO HAS A POLISHED TILT STEERING COLUMN WITH MATCHING LEATHER WRAPPED STEERING WHEEL. THE CUSTOM JBL SOUND SYSTEM WAS PROFESSIONALLY DONE BY CAR TOYS IN TULSA, OKLAHOMA. I WOULD PUT THESE GUYS UP AGAINST ANYONE ANYWHERE. THE ALPINE FLAT SCREEN HEAD UNIT FOLDS DOWN WITH THE PUSH OF A BUTTON AND FOLDS UP AND OUT OF THE WAY FOR THAT SUPER CLEAN LOOK. ALSO THE JBL SUBS BUMP JUST RIGHT. YOU WOULD BE HARDPRESSED TO FIND A TRUNK THIS CUSTOM. IT ALONE IS A WORK OF ART AND IT'S JUST A TRUNK. THE TRUNK LID OPENS AND CLOSES WITH THE PUSH OF A BUTTON BY A PAIR OF ACTUATORS. THIS TRUNK PROVES THAT ALL TRUNKS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL.IT HAS SHAVED DOOR HANDLES WITH DOOR POPPERS. THE DOOR POPPERS, THE TRUNK ACTUATORS AND THE ALPINE SCREEN ALL WORK OFF OF THE SAME REMOTE AND THERE ARE TWO REMOTES.
IT HAS A BLOWN SMALL BLOCK CHEVY THAT HAS BEEN DEBURRED, SMOOTHED AND PAINTED TO MATCH THE CAR. IT HAS A POLISHED VINTAGE DYERS STREET CHARGER BLOWER WITH FOUR WEBER SIDE DRAFTCARBURETORS. THIS IS THE ONLY SET UP I HAVE EVER SEEN LIKE THIS IN PERSON AND IT IS ALWAYS THE TALK OF ANY CAR SHOW IT ENTERS. IT HAS COATED BLOCK HUGGER HEADERS AND A MUSTANG II FRONTEND. IT HAS AN EXHAUST THRU FULL TUBE CHASIS WITH ADJUSTABLECOILERS FRONT AND REAR AND ONE OFF CHROMED UPPER AND LOWER CONTROL ARMS. THE ELECTRIC FAN KEEPS THE CAR RUNNING COOL IN ANY CLIMATE. TRIED AND TRUE MUNCIE 4 SPEED M22 ROCKCRUSHER COMPLETELY REBUILT INCLUDING NEW HOUSING. IT HAS A CHROMED FORD 9 INCH REAREND AND FOUR WHEEL DISC BRAKES WITH STAINLESS BRAKE LINES AND A CUSTOM CHROMED BRAKE RESERVOIR. IT HAS A CUSTOM COATED FLOWMASTER EXHAUST THAT SOUNDS JUST RIGHT. THE 20" REAR AND 18" FRONT POLISHED B.A.D. BILLET WHEELS ALONG WITH THE CENTER CAPS AND MATCHING STEERING WHEEL ARE ONE OFF CUSTOMS MADE FOR THIS BUILD ONLY. SUPER COOL ORIGINAL BUMPERS SMOOTHED AND WELDED AND PAINTED TO LOOK ALUMINUM ALONG WITH THE FRONT GRILL AND HEADLAMP BUCKETS. SOME OF THE BODY MODIFICATIONS INCLUDE THE DOOR HANDLES REMOVED, GAS FILLER DOOR REMOVED, COVES REWORKED, FIREWALL TOTALLY REWORKED AND SMOOTHED, AND ALL TRIM REMOVED AND ANY AND ALL HOLES FILLED AND SMOOTHED. THIS TRULY IS A ONE OF A KIND HOT WHEELS-ISH HOT ROD THAT DRAWS CROWDS EVERYWHERE IT GOES.
I HAVE OWNED THE CAR FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS NOW AND HAVE ONLY DRIVEN IT ABOUT 10 TIMES. I COMPETED AGAINST THIS CAR AT ALL THE MAJOR CAR SHOWS FOR SEVERAL YEARS UNTIL IT WAS REDONE FOR THE 3RD TIME AND STARTED COMPETING IN THE PRO BUILDERS CLASSES. IT WAS A VERY HIGH END BUILD AND APPEARED IN LOTS OF MAGAZINES WORLDWIDE INCLUDING HOT ROD MAGAZINE, CAR CRAFT, AND HOT RODDING JUST TO NAME A FEW. I HAVE SEVERAL OF THE MAGAZINES IN MYPOSSESSION SHOWING THE DIFFERENT TRANSITIONS IT HAS MADE IT ITS STORIED LIFE. IT WAS ALSO A CALENDAR CAR FOR WELD WHEELS AND HAS WON HUNDREDS OF AWARDS FROM SOME OF THE BIGGEST CAR SHOWS ON EARTH INCLUDING PRO ENGINEERED AT THE STREET MACHINE NATIONALS AND GOLD DE EXCELLENCE AT DARRYL STARBIRDS ROD AND CUSTOM SHOW.
IT WAS MY DREAM CAR FOR MANY YEARS AND WHEN THE OPPORTUNITY PRESENTED ITSELF I WAS ABLE TO PURCHASE IT BUT TO MY SURPRISE IT WAS A BASKET CASE. I HAD TO HAVE THE MOTOR REBUILT, TRANSMISSION REBUILT, REAREND REBUILT, AND THE CLUTCH, PRESSURE PLATE AND THROWOUT BEARING REPLACED. NEEDLESS TO SAY IT WAS VERY NEGLECTED AND NEEDED LOTS OF ATTENTION. IT IS FAR FROM PERFECT BUT WHAT CAR REALLY IS. FAST FORWARD 10 YEARS AND ONE HANDSOME GRANDSON LATER AND I THINK IT'S SAFE TO SAY MY PRIORITIES HAVE CHANGED. DO NOT CONSIDER THIS CAR IF YOU'RE NOT A FAN OF ATTENTION AND I PROMISE YOU, WHEREVER YOU GO, WHETHER IT BE SONIC OR THE LOCAL CAR CRUISE OR GOODGUYS THIS CAR DRAWS A CROWD.MY THOUGHTS WHERE TO HAVE A MODERN INTERIOR WITH AN OLD SCHOOL DRIVETRAIN AND I THINK THAT LOOK WASACCOMPLISHED. THE INTERIOR AND SOUND SYSTEM ALONE EXCEEDED $45K AND THAT IS NOT A TYPO. OVER THE YEARS THERE HAS BEEN ANASTRONOMICAL AMOUNT OF MONEY SPENT ON THIS CAR THROUGHOUT ITS MANY RESTORATIONS AND THAT WAS LONG BEFORE I CAME ALONG. I HAVE A CLEAN AND CLEAR GREEN OKLAHOMA TITLE IN MY NAME. ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT ME. I WILL ACCEPT A PERSONAL CHECK BUT THE CAR WILL REMAIN IN MYPOSSESSION UNTIL IT CLEARS MY BANK. I DO NOT NEED ANY HELP SELLING AND I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END THIS AUCTION AT ANYTIME. ALSO I HAVE INCLUDED A PICTURE OF THE CAR BEFORE THE LAST RESTORATION. IF YOU WANT PICTURES OF THE CAR IN VARIOUS MAGAZINES PLEASE ASK OR ANY PICTURES AT ALL JUST LET ME KNOW. THERE ARE A FEW VIDEOS OF THE CAR ON YOU TUBE AND I WILL ADD THE LINK SOON.
THANK YOU
