ICONIC, 383 V8, AUTO, CLEAN BODY, NICE INTERIOR, HARTOP, BIG TIRES, SLICK PAINT!
Every first-generation Corvette makes people say "WOW!" when they see it. But the moment you turn the key on this 1958 Chevrolet Corvette prostreet machine, you're going to let everyone on this car's secret. Because beneath those iconic bodylines is the heart and growl of a true beast.
Even before you check out all the street-eating features, this one has an instant attraction. That's because the '58 Corvette is already an icon. Four headlights up front and a curvaceous rear end that retains the tailfin style of the original – but in a much sleeker and sportier fashion. This one keeps all the great brightwork, including the wraparound bumpers, scalloping side trim, and the big toothy smile of the grille. Of course, red Corvettes are iconic, and that feeling is only heightened by the optional removable hardtop. So you might be so enamored by the sight of a beautiful red Corvette that you miss a few telltale clues like the side pipes, Weld racing wheels, and those massive rear tires.
Bucket seats with a waterfall-style tonneau in-between are part of the iconic style and comfort offered inside a first-generation Corvette. Plus, black interiors always look amazing on red cars, so this well-kept presentation is already impressive before you notice the upgrades. The chrome on the custom steering wheel (with power steering) nicely coordinates with the factory door panels and dash to fit the motif while still being a bold standout. The same goes for the Lokar shifter and the AutoMeter auxiliary gauges just ahead of it. So while you know there is a beast under the hood, someone took extra time to make a beautiful interior.
One look at the shining components in the engine bay, and you can tell this V8 is radiating power. Just having a 383 cubic-inch stroker motor under the hood is a huge displacement upgrade from anything available in '58, but this one goes much further. It has been upgraded with go-fast goodies such as a Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor, Holley Street Dominator intake, Griffith aluminum radiator, electric fans, and a set of long tube headers. That last one adds power as it feeds the roaring dual exhaust that exits right behind the driver's door (that way you get to enjoy the full performance soundtrack.) All this enhanced power is handled by the stout TH350 three-speed automatic transmission that feeds the beefy Moser Dana 60 rear end. This is a true street eating-setup that includes an upgraded front suspension with adjustable coilovers, tubular upper & lower A-arms, and Wilwood four-piston disc brakes. You also want to check out the strong multi-link rear suspension that does a great job of keeping those extra wide 29x18.5 Hoosier rear tires pinned to the ground. We even love that the C1's desirable trunk is being utilized for the fuel cell to keep weight over the rear wheels.
The classic styling on the outside only gives subtle hints to the beast within. That is a very cool way to have unique and speedy icon. It has no apologies and no equals, so if you can tame the beast, you need to hurry and call today!
