This Corvette C2 327HO is the classic American sports car from the early 1960s. The torquey 327 cid engine puts out 365 horsepower in the High Output version which is transmitted to the road through the 4-speed manual transmission and a limited slip differential. This sleek convertible makes up for the slightly lower power output compared to the big block engine with the lighter weight on the front axle and the resulting better road holding.
despite its success, the C2 had the shortest build period of
any generation at just over four years. Accordingly,
well-preserved examples are rare and sought after
The C2 was the first Corvette without a conventional rear axle; independent suspension was used for the first time. The independent rear suspension, together with the differential gear mounted on the frame, is the basic prerequisite for the excellent driving characteristics and handling. Also new on the C2 were the rotating headlights.
detail on this Corvette are the six rear lights in combination
with the slightly flared fenders and side pipes. This was a
so-called "dealer installed option" offered by a GM dealer with
the permission of GM and dates back to the 1964 song "Dead
Man's Curve" by Jan and Dean. The song is about an illegal
street race between a Jaguar and a Corvette. A lyric from the
song reads, "Flyed past Labrea, Schwab's and Crescent Heights
and all the Jaguar could see was my six taillights." A
California dealership took up the idea of the six taillights
and did the conversion for his customers of the rear lights in
combination with slightly flared fenders and sidepipes. These
vehicles are extremely popular with American collectors
