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!

        Definitely a coupe. It'll be less expensive and I'm a cheapskate.

          So, I love 'verts and spyders. But after looking at the photos...**** does that engine cover look good on the coupe! I don't think I could justify getting rid of it. The 'vert renderings look nice, but there is just something about the coupe. The fact that it has a targa makes it even better. I applaud the team for keeping that option.

              Hardtop convertible. The clear engine cover is a great feature. For obvious reasons, it won’t be used on the ht convertible.
              Possible solution, OLED engine cover! Simply post up a photo of your favorite engine and, voila! If you get bored with that you can always watch a movie or post up a fish tank! The possibilities are endless!
              In this crazy world, someone may actually do it!
              I’m goin’ driving 👍

                If there is a hard top convertible as Chazcron rendered that folds into the car, then yes. If a ragtop, then, "no".
                If not a hard top convertible then a coupe.
                If they offer a Grand Sport then probably a Grand Sport.

                  Anxiously awaiting seeing/sitting in a convertible. Want to make sure it still "feels" good enough with those buttresses. Looks like it will fold on top of the engine and retain cargo space, which is important to me. Hoping/planning on purchasing winter of 2021.
                  2022 HTC with 2LT, front lift, msrc, npp, elb with two tone seats, and CF int.
                  HRE wheels are on!

                    Coupe. Hydraulics in retractable hard tops can be expensive when repairs are needed out of warranty. And want the rear deck window.

                      There will be a vertical window behind the seat, behind the buttresses on the HT convertible, but as per GM’s official drawing, shown in our top forum landing banner, one will not be able to see the motor in a C8 HT convertible. Sorry about that for your HT folks.

                        Really, That's peanuts compared to the drivetrain, engine, transmission, electronics. The hydraulics are the least of anyones worries. How many HT Verts do you own? If anyone wants a HT Convertible I strongly suggest it I have owned many and have never had any issues with hysraulics. It is extremely nice to simply push the actuator down and have the top close when it starts raining. Should we all purchase a bicycle so there is less maintenance?

                          The C7 'vert uses hydraulics. In the more than 4 years I've been on Corvette forums, I've seen exactly one problem reported with the mechanicals or hydraulics of the 'vert. One. This isn't an Italian exotic, it's a Chevy. They'll test it to death. They probably have a 'vert in the shop somewhere undergoing 100,000 cycles.


                          As for the poll, unless the price of the HTV is way too much, definitely the 'vert. The visible engine is cool, but at shows everyone will be raising the hatch anyway. I'm fine with not having to polish my engine as often as the paint. And being able to drop or raise the top at the push of a button beats the heck out of wrestling with the targa and losing most of the rear trunk to the roof. I am assuming the rear window retracts when the top is lowered, but even if it doesn't I'd still prefer the HTV.

                            Enough. Let's keep this on topic which is whether you want a C8 coupe or convertible.

                              With the way it appears from the photos we have seen that it is a rounded cover. Possibly GM may figure out a way to approach it or possibly an aftermarket vendor may come up with the solution to be able to add a window cover of some type over the engine on the Vert.
