Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1958

Lowering price - 1 bid could win this awesome classic Corvette (or use buy-it-now)!

This is NOT a numbers matching car (it wasn't matching when I bought), I have done quite a few updates over the years to make it easier and more enjoyable to drive.

I get looks and thumbs up everywhere I drive or show the car. It is not perfect - just awesome.

It is time to pass on to a new owner who can continue to own, drive and have as much fun and memories as I have had.

Newer 1980 Chev 350 (slightly built) V8 engine (probably less than 10-15k miles)
Turbo 350 Automatic (much easier to drive here in Seattle hills & traffic)
New custom exhaust (2007)
Almost new Crager Wheels and BF Goodrich tires
New Griffin Aluminum Radiator (2016)
New water pump (2016)
Completely rebuilt seats (2003) (springs, foam, covers)
New front clip
1969 Daytona Yellow Corvette Clear Coat/Base Coat Paint
Sanded down to bare fiberglass about (2003) – clean body other than front that has been replaced.

EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL BLACK CAR – NOT CHARCOAL!
This is one of the last ‘58s built (July) and have proof that it actually was black. Confirmed by Nolan Adams, past Solid Axle Corvette Club President. He said at the time (2003) that he was only aware of 4 or 5 1958s that have been confirmed Black. Grease Pencil marking in Trunk from assembly line.
