STK 2483 1959 Chevrolet Corvette
By 1959, the Chevrolet Corvette had reached a performance standard that other American cars could not match. To quote Road and Track Magazine at the time "The 1959 Corvette is a pretty package, with all of the speed you need and then some." This fully restored roadster is stunning. Look at the photos. The restoration process left no stone unturned and there is a folder of notes and photos that document the restoration and much of the car's early history. Our Corvette was carefully reshot in Snowcrest White with Roman Red coves. (According to the documentation, it was all Snowcrest from the factory.) BF Goodrich wide-white bias-ply tires are mounted on steel wheels with elegant spinner hubcaps. Cosmetic revisions to the '59 model from the previous year included the deletion of hood louvers and chrome trunk strips. The interior is completely restored back to original and is impressive. Numerous interior components were replaced during the restoration process and many of the original parts (including the WonderBar radio) are included in the sale. Horsepower is furnished by a 283ci small-block that is fitted with dual Carter 4-barrel carbs. This configuration produced 245bhp from the factory. The original block of this Corvette was damaged and replaced with a short-block in the late 70's. All available records indicate that the 2x4 set-up was factory, but without the casting numbers from the original engine, we cannot be positive. The small-block is backed by a 4-speed manual transmission. The original fully-synchronized 3-speed manual transmission is also included in the sale. A solid chassis is equipped with manual steering and huge 11" drum brakes. Very few of these Corvettes reach the marketplace. This beautiful '59 Corvette is not a numbers matching car, but it is an amazing restoration that belongs in your collection. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
