Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1958

Please call Bradley @ 386-503-9364 for Questions or for an appointment to see the car. The amazing 1958 Corvette is the product of a frame off restoration. The body was taken down completely to the fiberglass. smoothed and repainted in Cascade Green with white coves. an original C1 Corvette color. The exterior. underneath. and jambs were all painted with a 2 stage Base Clear. A Crate engine was dropped in. Casting # 10066036. It is a 350 Cubic Inch. 260HP. 4 bolt main engine that runs beautifully. with a 4 barrel carb. headers. and attached to a turbo 350 Transmission that shifts excellent. The rear end is original and works excellent. The frame is very solid. with no signs of rust or repair. It was sanded down and repainted black. all four brakes were rebuilt with new parts and it stops great. The parking brake is not hooked up but all the parts are there. We installed brand new 17" Chrome Rocket racing mag wheels with new 225/50/17 Hankook tires. We have a set of original wheels and hubcaps in nice shape if the new owner would like those installed instead of the Chrome wheels. The paint on this car is very nice high quality job with very few imperfections. I would rate it a 8. 5 out of 10. Most of the exterior chrome has been replaced and is excellent. including Upper grill molding. grill assembly. front emblem & chrome bezel. left and right front bumpers. headlight bezels. fender spears. turn signals. and front side grill moldings. The only piece in the front that was not replaced is the center lower grill molding. which I would rate in fair condition and can hardly be seen. The rear emblem was replaced but the bezel was not and has some minor pitting. The rear tail lights are in nice shape. the tail light bezels are nice but not show quality. All stainless trim is in good to excellent condition. Almost all components inside the door are new. including chrome door posts. stainless trim. door channels. weather-stripping. door handles. locks. nbsp;strikers. and linkage. window regulators. and new glass. new parts alone for rebuilding the doors were over $2. 00. The front windshield is in nice shape. and the lower windshield trim is new. along with new wipers. linkage. and motor. The windshield posts are original and are in fair condition with some pitting and scarring. The interior has been completely restored. all the gauges were sent out to be rebuilt and have 414 miles recorded on them. The speedo and tach work just fine. along with the oil pressure gauge. nbsp;water temp. and fuel gauge. Wipers. blower motor. nbsp;and horn work great. Newer carpet. two tone seat covers. dash pad. steering wheel. door panels. kick panels. ETC. have been replaced or restored to a nice quality anyone would be proud of. The radio is new and works great with the two side speakers and the center speaker functional. The Convertible top was removed. broken down. and completely restored at a cost of $2. 00. with all new hardware. A new white convertible top was installed. Gauge light illumination. turn signals and blinker lights inside the cluster. brake lights. low beam headlights. and parking lights all work perfectly. The car runs and drives nicely. and fires up easily every time no problem. Lots of time. labor. and new parts have been put into this build. and it shows. Please ask any and all questions before bidding. and as always an in person inspection is recommended. Please inspect the pictures carefully. they tell the whole story.
