CORVETTE TODAY - Kevin Mackay Talks About The Cunningham Corvette & Bringing It Back To Life

In 1960, Briggs Cunningham took 3 Corvettes to France to race at Le Mans. After that race, the cars were brought back to the United States, put back to original and sold to consumers. The #3 car was recovered about put back to the way it was when it raced in 1960 at Le Mans and is owned by a private owner. https://youtu.be/_g_9Eah8pS8; https://podcasts.adorilabs.com/corve...FbtXiohpLYxLCh The car is owned by Bruce Meyers of the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. But what happened to the car? After a long legal battle, Kevin Mackay from Corvette Repair in Long Island, New York, has been putting this historic Corvette back to it's original 1960 livery for the past year (after it was purchased by Briggs Cunningham's family at auction). Kevin comes back on CORVETTE TODAY to tell the story of the Cunningham Corvette and to tell you when and where you can see this car...with its two siblings! If you love the history of Corvette and its racing past, DO NOT MISS this episode of CORVETTE TODAY. www.CorvetteToday.com

      My devious mind wonders about "leaks" like this. This one said to be from Canada. My large Canadian Corvette dealer said "no way, no 2020 cars in system yet". Of course that could just be an "official" denial, but I have another thought.

      The forums represent a large, interested and engaged focus group where the reaction to options and new colours can be easily seen. Suppose this is an early draft of the option list and the Corvette team would love to get reactions. How best to do that? An "accidental leak" maybe?

        Seems that if the car was to begin production in the next nine months or so it would be pretty late to be making changes or decisions.

          Colours for instance?

          Option vs standard?

            I’d bet decisions are already made but maybe the lead time isn’t as long as I think.

                Unless it’s really ugly, overpriced or a poor performer I doubt it.

                  It will not be overpriced; it will look spectacular; and its performance will be excellent for an entry model, far better than the C7 entry version’s 0-60, 3.7 seconds.

                      Hopefully, the lessons were learned: Do not price it like an NSX and Do not let her be as heavy

                        Can’t say any more other than my jaw muscles are aching from grinning continuously. Have I seen the car myself? Regrettably not. Do I know its weight or its HP? No. However, should those concerned about price, re-read this linked thread? Yes.

                        https://www.midenginecorvetteforum.c...on-for-version

                        In summary, birdies are chirping “very happy” about “future Corvette product.”

                        As are those friends of mine who are thrilled with their highly-discounted purchase of a fantastic 2019 C7!

                        in all respects, as Harlan said at Sebring, “2019 will be a very good year.”

                          They priced the NSX out of the market trying to be exclusive. I don't think Chevy is going to make the same mistake and they certainly don't want the reputation of it being exclusive. Won't sell a lot of them that way. Just ask Acura.
