OVERVIEW

1960 Chevrolet Corvette

  • DESCRIPTIONFrom New to New in 48 years and 91,551 miles By John Apen 2/09/09 Nothing like a recession to bring prices down. No, I am not talking about this years "recession", but the recession of 1959-60 which made it possible for me to buy the only new car I ever bought. When I was in College at Berkeley and watching every penny, one of the members of the house came back from a home visit driving a new Corvette, probably a '56. I never got a ride but after admiring it for a year and observing the girls he attracted, I swore that someday I would own such a neat car. Four years later, having graduated and gotten a job at the prestigious Bell Telephone Research Laboratories in NJ and earning over $100/week while also pursuing a Master's degree, I started saving and tracking the prices for used Corvettes. Finally in late 1960, the transmission in my 1949 Olds 98 Holiday hardtop, 3,006 made, gave up the ghost when I tried to "rock" it out of a snow drift.
