This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
It's time your sims drive a classic car around town! Purchase this car for your sims and no doubt they will get people gawking at them. This classic Corvette is the perfect convertible to drive in the summer breeze. Enjoy!

This 1960 Chevrolet Corvette cost $50,000 in game, can be found in the vehicles section, was designed to fit 2 sims in at a time, and has 2 recolorable parts: the main body, and the side panels.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Nice. However, I don't suppose you'd do a non-convertible version?

Wow this is really THE CAR.
I have a friend / neighbor who has exactly such a car, red. The car is restored and in excellent original condition. He is also active in the Swedish Corvette Society.
Many thanks, I let one of my rich sims drive one.
It would be nice with more low price cars from the 40/50's....

Wow...Thats all I can say is WoW!!! I have been collecting your cars since you started WAY BACK in TS2. And my wife is absolutely going to love this. It's one of her favorite cars from that era. Cheers!!

Oh yea wanted to add one thing...I said this once before and I'll say it again...

EA Needs to PAY YOU for your designs!! They gave us 2 cars. You have given us more than we deserve!!

Not that I don't mind the freebies here @ MTS.
