Description

PROF REBUILT 283 V8, 4-SPEED, FRONT DISCS, TITLE DOCS, MAINT RCRDS & BUILD RCPTS

This 1958 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible has the dual-quad V8, four-on-the-floor and a ton of all the right investments over the last few years. The result is a car that remains very vintage but is also made for those who love the drive.

This color combo is a big reason why the Corvette firmly established itself as America's sports car during its first generation. The black with sliver accent coves portrays both sophistication and speed, which is what you want in a personal sports car. Plus, there's plenty of brightwork, so it's great to see this car complete everywhere from the toothy grille to the factory wheel covers. There are some exclusive touches to the 1958 car. It was the first year for the four headlights, only year for the silver streaks on the trunk, and the louvers in the hood were only found here. It gives this car added distinction while also keeping all the best pieces that helped grow the legend of America's sports car. We particularly love these for the optional hardtop. As you can see on this color-matched one, these C1s were particularly good at delivering a design that looked like it was made to be a swoopy coupe from day one.

As much as we like the look of this with the roof in place, the C1 also knew how to have the look of a true roadster. And it's hard to attract more attention than a bold red interior. You have well-fitting vinyl on the bucket seats, a smooth dash, and that ideal thin grip that only a classic steering wheel can deliver. Plus, details like the correct factory tach and the smooth action of the shifter really give you a confident driver feeling even in a very vintage vehicle.

Under the hood is a quite correct-looking package. Everything from the broad and bright air grabber to the Delco generator look like the correct pieces for a stock '58 Corvette. And while this looks factory, there have also been some big investments. We have a receipt from 2016 documenting a rebuilt motor form Hi Performance Restorations. They are Corvette specialists in the Midwest, and it includes $$$$ invested in this era-correct block. There was even camshaft work for the special Duntov high-lift cam. And making sure this V8 gets plenty of go-juice is a dual set of Rochester four-barrel carburetors. This all means correct power with a fresher presentation. That's why it's such a strong package, and it even makes a terrific sound out of the newer dual exhaust. You have complete control over this big power and its rumbling soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission (also professional rebuilt in 2016.) Extra control is a central theme to this C1 that also includes a Positraction rear and a front disc brake upgrade.

The sale comes complete with build receipts, maintenance records, and title documentation. This one has the look, the power, and the driver-ready feel. It makes for an awesome Corvette you can't resist. Call today!!!
