Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1959

This 1959 Chevrolet Corvette is a restored drop-top with a terrific color combo, enhanced V8 power, four-on-the-floor, and an overall look of care. So it's the icon that really lives up to your dreams.
Crown Sapphire is a great factory correct color. It was only available on the Corvette for 1959, and less than 900 we painted this hue, so it makes for instant rarity and distinction. And it's part of a terrifically coordinated presentation. The white side coves look great, especially when the white folding roof is in place. And even the wheels get in on this two-tone look with wide whitewalls a hint of the color matched steelies surrounding the wheel covers. There's mirror-like brightwork in all the best palaces, including the wraparound bumpers, scalloping side trim, and the big toothy smile of the grille. It really proves this one was given a quality restoration later in life, right down to the way the doors close with confidence.
Inside, the turquoise theme continues, so this car looks great with the top up or down. This has a quality look on the door panels, dash, and leather bucket seats. The carpeting appears to be original, and if you would like to upgrade, a valuable Al Knoch replacement also comes with the sale. Even the trunk looks nice and clean. The Corvette was able to firmly establish its legacy as America's sports car in its first generation because of the way the interior speaks to the driver. The steering wheel has that ideal thin/grippy feeling; the updated Hurst shifter has a crisp action; and the full gauge package looks clean, including the centrally mounted tach.
Under the hood is a 283 cubic-inch V8. It could almost pass for stock with the bold orange block, large polished air topper, Chevrolet script valve covers, and ram's horns exhaust manifolds. But as you dig a little deeper, you'll discover nice performance upgrades like the Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. It's even supported by nice pieces like an aluminum radiator and new stainless dual exhaust. The V8 starts up easy, idles smooth, and runs beautifully. So you'll love taking full control of it all with the four-speed manual transmission.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a cool Corvette with the right color and a great power package. So don't miss out on this unique classic. Call today!!!
