Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1959

1959 Chevy Corvette RoadsterFactory Triple Black 283 4 bbl Roadster
True Barn Find(That runs and drives like a new 59')
I picked up this 1959 Corvette from a Estate sale some time ago, along with a 67' which is also for sale (see my other listings)...these cars sat since the 1980's before I bought them and have gotten them straightened out and mechanically right!
1959 Chevy Corvette Roadster (Single Top) Factory Tuxedo Black with Black Interior and black soft top...(No Hard Top)...factory base 283 3 speed runs great. 3 Speed trans shifts excellent, brakes stop straight and true.
A excellent rust free California Black Plate Car with a perfect from and (almost) a "no hit" body. There is a bit of fiberglass damage on the inner side of the right rear bumper...I have a replacement panel...I would just "glass in" the small portion 2"x4" that it needs and be done with it.
I went through the gas tank, carb, rebuilt the radiator, completely rebuilt the brakes, replaced the clutch, got basically EVERYTHING working, including the horn. The frame is excellent, original spare still in the stowage...original VIN tag unmolested and never removed.
The motor is not original to the car, it was swapped with another 59 283 in 68' because the original motor was smoking...but the complete, original motor is included...
This car runs and drives excellent, all lights, signals, gauges, etc. work great. Car always fires right up and drives great (drove 80 miles today) tires are even new!
The car has 45 year old paint on it, and the original tuxedo black is showing through...so...yea..she's got plenty of patina!
The original soft top and frame is there...all in tact, butI'm afraid if I ever put it up, it'd crumble like a cheap suit! So, budget for a new soft top.
A fantastic 59' barn find that everything mechanical has been sorted out and you can absolutely drive it....exactly the way it is.
Clean and Clear Title in my name...
My reason for selling is I am in the aviation business, and need the storage space for another airplane! 630 273-7595....car is for sale on other venues and auction will absolutely be ended in the event of a local sale...this car is priced to SELL!
I have a Central Dispatch Account and can get you this Corvette faster than your wife can get her Amazon Order!
