If there is such a thing.
This is a one-off 1960 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod LS3 Convertible. And it is currently up for auction on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $165,000. According to the seller it took over 1,600 man hours, performed by top Corvette restoration experts, to complete the frame off restoration that included the installation of a LS3 6.2-liter crate engine. 430 horsepower is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission, while stopping power comes from MKD 4-wheel disc brakes.

Finished in a glorious shade of Torque Blue with a Sand interior, the C1 Vette has utilized various elements of future generations of the car, including front and rear suspension borrowed from a C4 and 18-wheels from a C6. Modern upgrades include ultra-leather seats and trim, air conditioning, a RetroSound stereo system with USB & Bluetooth, a canvas soft top, power windows and power steering. This car looks to be in absolutely immaculate condition both inside and out. And with just 11,708 miles on the odometer, this is a rare opportunity to buy a completely original classic Corvette with modern underpinnings, performance and safety.
