Students of Corvette history will recognize this 1960 Corvette, which was featured in Noland Adams' book Corvette: American Legend 1958-1960 as one of two prototypes built that year with the 283/315 HP fuel injected V-8. A Duntov Award winner in 2007 and one of the most famous of the so-called "Big Brake" cars, this Roman Red rocket retains its entire original driveline, including its 4-speed manual and Positraction rear end, and comes with full owner documentation right back to the original selling dealer. And how is this for originality: the brake air scoops are still stored in their original burlap shipping bag.
