1956 CORVETTE

UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A VERY SPECIAL PIECE OF HISTORY. 1956 CORVETTE 225HP 3 SPEED, TWO TOPS. 3 OWNER, FULLY DOCUMENTED, 2 TIME TOP FLIGHT, NATIONAL AND REGIONAL, TWO STAR BOW TIE AWARDED. 58816 ORIGINAL MILE, UN RESTORED CORVETTE. CAR WAS SOLD NEW ON 10-16-1956 FROM VAL STROUGH CHEVROLET, OAKLAND CAL. TO WALTER BOTELLO, 1963 THE CAR WAS SOLD TO WALTERS SISTER IN LAW MARGRET "FLASH" HUBBARD, THEN TO NEPHEW JOHN McDONNELL IN 2001. JOHN TOOK THE CAR THAT HAD BEEN SITTING IN FLASH'S GARAGE FOR OVER 30 YEARS, AND BROUGHT IT BACK TO LIFE. ONLY DOING MECHANICAL RESTORATION AND DETAILING, HE HAD THE ORIGINAL CONVERTIBLE TOP RESTITCHED AND PUT BACK ON THE CAR. IN 2004 AND 2005 IT WAS JUDGED AND AWARDED THE REG. AND NATIONAL TOP FLIGHT AWARDS, NATIONAL HOMECOMING CELEBRITY SELECT JUDGE AWARD, AND THE NCRS 2 STAR BOW TIE AWARD. THE CAR IS DOCUMENTED WITH EVERY REGISTRATION SINCE NEW, ORIGINAL CORVETTE OWNERS PACKET, WITH THE 1956 CORVETTE NEWS. ORIGINAL OWNERS MANUAL. PHOTOS OF THE CAR IN 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960. THE CAR WAS AT THE WORLDS FAIR 1962 IN SEATTLE. PHOTOS OF THE THREE OWNERS TOGETHER. A CASSETTE RECORDING OF THE THREE OWNERS DISCUSSING THE CAR AND ITS HISTORY. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST ORIGINAL UNMOLESTED CORVETTES I HAVE SEEN. THE CONDITION IS UNBELIEVABLE. THE INTERIOR DOES SHOW IT'S AGE, WE ARE IN PROCESS OF CLEANING THE INTERIOR, AND GOING TO RECOVER THE SEATS WITH AL KNOCK COVER, WE WILL SAVE THE ORIGINAL COVERS. HERE IS A CHANCE TO OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY, A TRUE COLLECTOR CAR. HARD TO PUT A PRICE ON THIS ONE. IF SERIOUS PLEASE CALL TO DISCUSS.
