Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1959

For sale is wonderful example of a C1 Corvette from 1959, this car was a complete, no-expense-spared frame-off restoration. The engine has been completely restored to better than original factory specs. The power is superb and the transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears - mechanically, this is a fantastic vehicle. The vehicle is 100% OEM with correct numbers (confirmed numbers include block casting, intake manifold, exhaust manifold, heads - however we were unable to obtain the block cast date (due to its location) and engine serial number (due to milling on the rebuild). The interior is as good as the rest of the car - you really get a sense of what made these vehicles so attractive in the late 50's when they were in the showrooms. NCRS was referenced during the restoration to make sure the work was being done correctly and to factory specs. Nothing was overlooked when rebuilding this car and it shows. If you are looking for an epic Corvette, then this C1 is the one for you.
