This 1960 Briggs Cunningham Corvette Race Car (Sebring and LeMans) has VIN #00867S102538. From the factory, it featured a 290 hp, 283 cubic inch (fuel injected) engine, a four-speed transmission, posi-traction, heavy-duty brakes and steering, with Firestone Super Sport 170, 6.50/6.70-15 front and 7.10/7.60 rear (as race) - original tires.

Other factory options included heater, radio delete, windshield washers, temperature-controlled radiator fan and 24-gallon fuel tank. Steward Warner gages, Halibrand quick release fuel cap, Lucas driving and brake lights, Koni competition shock absorbers, Bendix fuel pumps (2), front additional sway bar, aircraft 'jump' seat, brake ducting, cooling duct for the driver, and 'Sebring' exhausts were added for racing.

John Fitch and Briggs Cunningham raced the car at Sebring in March 1960. Fitch was at the wheel when a Halibrand wheel broke early in the race. Fitch and Bob Grossman raced the car at LeMans in June 1960 where it won its class (Grand Touring GT 4000 to 5000 cc) and finished eighth overall. This was the first time Corvettes raced at LeMans and it wasn't until 2001 that a Corvette again placed this high - same result, first in class, eighth overall.

The #3 Corvette was driven by John Fitch and Bob Grossman at the 1960 LeMans. It was driven to a class win - an impressive accomplishment considering this was the Corvette's first year to compete at Le Mans.

During the race, the car overheated in the 23 hour. Race rules prohibited cars from receiving any fluids other than fuel, so the crew packed ice from drink coolers into the engine bay, enabling the car to continue the final hour and capture the historic victory.

There were two other Corvette entries:
- The #1 car was driven by Briggs Cunningham and William Kimberley was involved in an accident and was unable to finish the race.

- The #2 car was driven by Fred Windridge and Dr. Dick Thompson completed 207 laps before being involved in an accident.
