Corvette 1959

This 1959 Chevrolet Corvette has been resorted to give you the vintage look you love. But as you get closer, you can also see it was given all the right extras. Everything from the dual-quad 350ci V8 to the A/C interior makes this first-gen Vette an all-around awesome package.

There has been some nice work that has gone into this Corvette to make sure it gives off a proper classic first impression. The black paint was updated later in life to make sure it still shows a good gloss in the sunshine that loves to highlight the curvy body panels. And the side covers panted in a classic Inca Silver really shows off this hallmark styling element. Plus, all the brightwork has an exceptional mirror-like look on all the best places, including the split front bumper, toothy grille, correct wheel covers, and the rear bumper with integrated exhaust tips. This comes with both tops. So you get to choose a white folding roof that coordinates with the whitewall tires, and it also complements the black body as if the car was wearing a tuxedo. And the color-matched hardtop gives this a sleek coupe silhouette. But of course, we all love the first-gen Corvettes because it also allows us to go with no roof at all.

The bright red interior is like a beacon calling out for you to come closer and hop inside. Nice bucket seats, clean/bright carpeting, a smooth dash, and taut door panels give this the overall look of quality. You'll even love showing off vintage features like the working clock and Wonderbar AM radio. But there are also the right well-integrated upgrades. The steering wheel looks vintage, but it's a thicker and smaller diameter unit. And the addition of cold-blowing R134a air conditioning makes it much nicer to enjoy the open-top driving experience on a sunny day.

The engine bay has a bit of a stock first impression. You have the wide air grabber, bold block, and cool Corvette script valve covers. In fact, the dual Carter four-barrel carburetors was something that you could get back in 1959. However, the 350 cubic-inch V8 beneath it is a 25% increase in displacement over anything from that year. And this is a four-bolt main motor, too. It also has nice upgrades like a 12-volt system, alternator, and dual electric fans. This is a powerful package that fires up readily, and the four-speed manual transmission shifts smooth to give you confident control over it all. There are even upgraded front disc brakes to make sure this upgraded C1 delivers proper control.

Complete with owner's manual, this Corvette has been given the right investments to look like a great classic and also provide you with the power and comfort upgrades you really want. It's a total package that you know needs to be your new Sunday driver. Call today!!!
