Description
This 1959 Corvette is one striking total package. An attractive color combo with plenty of bright chrome makes quite an impression on the outside. Both tops give you complete freedom. The dual-quad V8 power with a four-speed keeps you wanting to hop in and go for a drive. And since this icon is ready to roll right now, what's stopping you from enjoying this symbol of the open road? Snowcrest White is a year-correct color that has everlasting appeal. This is a respray later in life that gives .....
this convertible a good gloss that goes beyond your average driver without looking like an over-done trailer queen. It's the kind of ideal look that Corvette fans often look for because it remains impressive without taking the car out of bounds. Plus, where the real flair is showcased on this one is in the brightwork. You can tell there was a nice investment in chrome in all the places that count, including the toothy-grille, two-piece front bumpers, and two-piece rear with integrated exhaust. And as you dig deeper into this car, you can tell it has been appreciated for the details. It's in everything from the functioning hood cowl to the way the doors close with confidence. Plus, by 1959 the first gen Corvette had evolved into a car with proper side windows, and you get the choice to button-up this car fully with either the white convertible top or white hard top. While weather color-matched roof gives this a good look, a C1 is really meant to be enjoyed with the roof down. We love the red interior because it looks so bold against the white paint, and at the same time, it reminds us of the look of the first-year cars. The interior is kept highly vintage, right down to the factory heater and Wonderbar AM radio that's still cranking out tunes. The dash, carpet piping, door panels, and bucket seats all have a nice cherry hue. And speaking of the seats, because C1 ownership is all about the details, don't forget to point out the horizontal pleats that were only on the '59s. There's a healthy dose of brightwork on the door panels, dash, and steering wheel and it's all complete and shining, like a good classic should. The thin and grippy wheel feels great in your hands, and it gives you a commanding view of the full gauge panel. And because the all important tach in this stick-shift car is still working, there's nothing stopping you from going out and having a Route 66-style adventure. Under the hood is a period correct 283 cubic inch V8. Everything from the broad and bright air grabber, to the finned Corvette valve covers look like the correct pieces for a stock '58 Corvette. Plus, as you peek into the motor a bit more you see this was done with dual Carter four-barrel carburetors for proper C1 power. You'll also spot the right maintenance right down to fundamentals like good hoses, belt, and wires. This makes for a motor that fires up nicely for the feeling of a classic Corvette that you can confidently enjoy on the road. Plus, the control of the four-speed manual transmission and the howl of the dual exhaust are an intoxicating symphony for the senses. The C1 Corvette is an icon, and so rarely will you get a chance at something so beautiful that's also turn-key ready for fun this weekend. Don't wait, call today!
