Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1958

A rare piece of art on four wheels. Black 1958 Corvette convertible, white coves and top.This was an extensive three year restoration with only 3000 miles since completion. This rare Corvette was featured in the hard cover book "The Real Corvette An Illustrated History Of Chevrolet's Sports Car" written by Ray Miller in 1975. This automotive masterpiece was owned and cherished for over 30 years before the owner began the restoration process on a well preserved original no hit fiberglass body with impeccable panel fit and a very clean frame.The body was completely dissembled and painted correctly piece by piece. The chrome was removed and re-plated or polished to a brilliant shine and new rubber gaskets were added for proper sealing. The interior was redone in dark charcoal gray Al Knoch upholstery and new white convertible top, new seat foam, new carpet, door panels, reconditioned and recalibrated gauges, recovered dash pad and reset the odometer to 0 miles that now reads only 3000 miles. The owner chose to build a later 1958 date code 283/245 engine with most of the correct components reassembled to look factory original and mated it with a rebuilt Muncie 4-speed. The Carter 4bbl carburetor was rebuilt and put on with correct valve covers and ignition shielding. Other new parts include, but are not limited to: brakes, wheel cylinders, master cylinder, gas tank and sending unit, stainless exhaust, shocks, battery, rebuilt front end and rebuilt 336 rear end. Rolling on new wide white radials with correct spinner caps for that iconic Corvette look.
