Stunning Roman red (white coves) red interior 1960 Corvette 283 CI • 230 HP • 4-barrel carburetor • 4 speed manual • 4.11 positraction - part number correct car with matching dates corresponding to appropriate build month and year of vehicle. Meticulous frame-up restoration. Probably less than 1,000 miles on re-built engine and transmission. Hardtop only, "Wonderbar" Radio & Heater.
The pictures tell the story. This Vette VIN 00867S106423 has been meticulously restored over an extended period of time. Previously owned by NCRS judge who recently commented “WOW, that really looks great. You did a good job. It certainly is a good candidate for an NCRS type event. This Corvette checks out to be equipped with the original engine from the factory and that's a big deal in NCRS if you want to participate in NCRS, you have a good start”.
The engine is a correct 3756519 casting with a casting date of D80 which denotes that the casting was poured on April 8, 1960. The engine stamp reads: 106423 F0412CQ . Those translate to: (1) the VIN derivative of Corvette 1960; sequential number 6423 (2) F = Flint Michigan, where the engine was assembled; 0412 = April 12th, the date the engine was built in Flint; CQ = 230 HP engine mated to a standard transmission.
The date sequence where the block was cast on April 8th, built in Flint on April 12th and installed in a Corvette on April 22nd is exactly as we expect to see. This sequence is typical.

Numbers off transmission castings and differential: 4-Speed Manual Transmission (685) - was an optional four-speed, close ratio, syncromesh manual transmission. The option included a "T" handle with positive reverse lockout which this car has.
The main transmission casting #T10-1BWG (Borg Warner Gears) DIV (Division) Q2 (cast 2nd quarter) 7-16; Tail casting T10-7B WGD(Division)1V; for 1960 RPO 675 required that the Corvette have a manual transmission. Positraction Rear Axle (675) - A "limited slip" rear axle that engages both rear wheels as drive wheels. Of the total 5,231 Corvettes built with this option 3,226 had a 4.11:1 ratio.
Differential B130 cast Jan-Feb 13 (ties with Q2 engine build date of April 12, 1960) casting date - casting #3743833.
The T10-1B cast iron case was used in Corvettes from June of 1959 through January 1961 when they changed to T10-1C aluminum cases. The iron extension housing should be T10-7B (1960-61 Pass & Vette).
Nice original interior seats; new door panels.
This C1 was restored little by little over an extended period of time beginning in the late eighties; then purchased by NCRS judge for his own use in 2006. Stored in climate controlled facility until I bought it in November of 2013. $6,881 was spent on completing the restoration after I acquired the vehicle (complete binder of all items purchased from Corvette Central is included).
Quoting the NCRS judge “body work under the repaint on this car is very good. The lines are very straight; much more so than they were when the car left the Corvette plant in St Louis Missouri. As I work on this car I am remembering why I bought it. In my opinion, it is exceptional. The odometer reads 19252”.
