New 427 Corvette convert to mark 60 years of fiberglass fun

Chevrolet today unveiled the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition – the fastest, most capable convertible in Corvette’s history – as well as a 60th Anniversary Package that will be available on all 2013 Corvette models.

“The 2013 model year will be historic for Corvette, marking its 60th Anniversary and the final year for the current ‘C6’ generation,” said Chris Perry, vice president, Global Marketing and Strategy for Chevrolet. “We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate these milestones than bringing back one of the most-coveted combinations in the brand’s history – the Corvette convertible and a 427 cubic-inch engine.”

The 60th Anniversary Package and 427 Convertible will make their public debut at the Barrett-Jackson collector car auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Jan 21, and will arrive at U.S. Chevrolet dealers early this summer.

Mike Anderson Chevrolet is a fully certified Corvette dealer and home of nationally renowned Corvette Technician Lee Stahr and will be offering the Collector Corvette.

    With regard to your Jan. 26th newsletter entry about the 60th anniversary 427 c.i. Corvette convertible, I know that space is limited but it would have been nice if you had given the power specs and what transmission(s) will be offered.
