The Corvette Hunter Kevin Mackay is back on the Corvette Today Podcast as he tells the story of the no. 1 1960 Corvette Le Mans racer. This story took so many twists and turns as it was unfolding and Mackay was there in the middle of it all, from the car’s discovery in a St. Petersburg, Florida warehouse until its eventual court-ordered sale which saw the car purchased by a member of the Cunningham family.

In 1960, Briggs Cunningham took three Corvettes to race at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. We know where the #2 and the #3 cars are. But whatever happened to the #1 car?

Legendary Corvette hunter, Kevin Mackay, returns to the CORVETTE TODAY podcast to tell you the story of this famous Corvette!

Kevin sits down with your CORVETTE TODAY host, Steve Garrett, to trace the chase for this #1 car, the legal battle that insured, and the auction of this car. Plus, find out where this famous #1 Le Mans car is now.
