1960 Corvette Restomod

Classic Corvette packs nice mix of old and new ranging from Bluetooth to an LS3 6.2L crate engine. But is it enough to woo classic collectors on eBay?

Beauty, isn’t she? Though, we get the sense there might be a few classic Corvette fans who question whether it’s actually $165,000 worth of good looks.

That’s the current asking price for the 1960 Corvette restomod on eBay. But the last time we checked, the highest bid was hovering right around $35,000 for the complete frame-off restoration, which is substantially lower than what the seller is seeking.

Now, to the novice collector, that might seem a bit surprising just from how good the ‘Vette looks. But as many know here, the selling pricing of a resto mod can vary depending on a number of factors.

This one certainly seems like it’s worth far more than $35,000 but $165,000 might be a stretch. Some of the key selling points include a 2011 LS3 6.2L Crate Engine cranking out 430-horsepower; 11,708 miles on the odometer; a C4 front and rear suspension; reproduced 18×18.5 Corvette C6 Wheels & Tires; and MKD four-wheel disc brakes.

Some of the top modern upgrades include ultra-Leather seats by Al Knoch Interiors and a RetroSound stereo with USB & Bluetooth. The ’60s resto classic also features a canvas soft top, power windows and power steering.

The Corvette’s hot blue exterior is official known as Torque Blue, the paint work credited to the team at Danny Hot Rod paint shop. The car also has another interesting credit to its name, which is the fact that it was featured as a 2014 Hot Rod Power Tour Magazine feature car. But the question remains — is it all enough to prompt someone to spend $165,000?
