Chip Miller was a Corvette enthusiast who co-founded Corvettes at Carlisle with his friend Bill Miller. Over the years, he amassed an amazing collection of Corvettes including the No.3 Corvette that won its class at the 1960 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The search, discovery, and restoration of the 1960 Corvette would be immortalized in the documentary by filmmaker Michael Brown called The Quest which also introduced us to gentleman racer Briggs Cunningham who put the winning effort together.
Briggs Cunningham was no stranger to success as his teams dominated the American auto racing scene from 1950 to 1963. In 1960 he took three specially modified Corvettes to the 24 Hours of Le Mans where they would compete on the world stage of racing. Of the three Corvettes, it was the No.3 Corvette that would take the checkered flag, winning its class and finishing 8th overall.
Following the 1960 Le Mans, the three Corvettes were restored back to stock condition and sold, their new owners never knowing about their significance. Years later, Corvette restorer Kevin Mackay would track down the winning Corvette and it was acquired by Chip Miller who had it restored back to its Le Mans racing livery.
Sadly, Chip Miller passed away in 2004 due to a rare disease known as amyloidosis. Today, the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation raises funds for the research, education, and awareness of amyloidosis and related diseases.
To honor the legacy of Briggs Cunningham and Corvette’s first win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a limited-edition C8 Corvette is being built with just 60 examples planned. Each will be numbered to commemorate the 1960 Le Mans-winning No. 3 Corvette and you can win one of these examples with your donation to the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation.
Each of the 60th Anniversary Cunningham C8 Corvettes will feature a naturally-aspirated LT2 V8 engine tuned to nearly 600-horsepower from the pros at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. Other upgrades include a high-flow carbon fiber intake manifold, CORSA Performance headers, a tuned suspension with motorsport-inspired aerodynamics, as well as specially-created HRE forged aluminum wheels modeled after the Halibrand racing wheels used on the original Cunningham Corvettes.
