An exterior update could be found in the wheels which were body colored in 1960. It's a way to differentiate from the 1959 Corvette, which featured black wheels.
The 1960 Corvette was largely unchanged compared to the 1959 model; the biggest update was six new colors including Cascade Green. Aluminum radiators came with the 270 hp and 290 hp engines.
