Nobody can say that General Motors wasn't hitting on all eight cylinders in the 1950s. One brilliant design after another flowed out of their design studios, and few are more timeless and widely recognized than the 1958 Corvette. With quad headlights, the contrasting side cove, and exquisite detailing throughout, these were more than just America's sports car, they were artwork.

Signet Red was actually quite a popular color in 1958, although white was still by far the most popular. Given the condition of the finish, it's easy to believe this car was painted just a few years ago and suggests that someone has taken exceptional care of this 'Vette. Fit and finish are excellent throughout, with tight door gaps and smooth panels that don't display the typical Corvette flaws and imperfections and those white side coves really pop! And while some may feel that the details on the 1958 models are excessive, including hood louvers and trunk trim that were exclusive to this year, it's also what makes these cars unique and therefore desirable. Of course, there are others who feel that there's no way to make an early Corvette look bad, and all the trim is just part of the wonderful decade of the 1950s. ...

Description

COLLECTOR-OWNED C1, 284 V8, DUAL QUADS, 4-SPEED, DUALS, ELECTRIC PWR STEER/BRAKE

Nobody can say that General Motors wasn't hitting on all eight cylinders in the 1950s. One brilliant design after another flowed out of their design studios, and few are more timeless and widely recognized than the 1958 Corvette. With quad headlights, the contrasting side cove, and exquisite detailing throughout, these were more than just America's sports car, they were artwork.

Signet Red was actually quite a popular color in 1958, although white was still by far the most popular. Given the condition of the finish, it's easy to believe this car was painted just a few years ago and suggests that someone has taken exceptional care of this 'Vette. Fit and finish are excellent throughout, with tight door gaps and smooth panels that don't display the typical Corvette flaws and imperfections and those white side coves really pop! And while some may feel that the details on the 1958 models are excessive, including hood louvers and trunk trim that were exclusive to this year, it's also what makes these cars unique and therefore desirable. Of course, there are others who feel that there's no way to make an early Corvette look bad, and all the trim is just part of the wonderful decade of the 1950s. Either way, this is a car that will be the center of attention anywhere it goes.

The red interior is almost entirely new and has enjoyed a very thorough makeover. Few will argue against a red-on-red Corvette, and the look is as timeless as the Corvette itself. There's not a lot of bolstering to the buckets, but fortunately seat belts were included for the first time in 1958, which surely helped keep drivers in place during spirited driving. New carpets and matching door panels give the interior a highly polished look, while the instruments, which were freshly redesigned in 1958, have been rebuilt and augmented with a modern tach in the center. The steering wheel looks original, but it's smaller in diameter and the rim is fatter, so it's easier to get comfortable and with electric power steering (yes, you read that correctly), it steers with just your fingertips. The original AM radio is gone, replaced by an AM/FM unit that sounds great and the Hurst shifter snaps through the gears with authority. There's also a nice-fitting white convertible top and a matching hardtop, making this a very desirable 'Vette.

The biggest engine available in 1958 was a 283, but this one sports a 1961 vintage block with twin Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetors up top. Dressed to appear original, it includes the twin chrome air cleaners, cast aluminum valve covers with 'Corvette' script, and ram's horn exhaust manifolds. The front carburetor is not hooked up, so it's a bit more economical without losing any notable power and the look is certainly impressive. Other upgrades include a chrome alternator in place of the original generator and a modern dual reservoir master cylinder with power assist. The engine runs beautifully, with a smart cackle from the twin tailpipes, and pulling through the gears of the 4-speed manual gearbox like a freight train. The underside is finished to drive, with a fresh dual exhaust system and satin black paint, but nothing out of order so you can hit the road without worries. 205/75/15 whitewall radials on steel wheels with full wheel covers add just the right amount of '50s flash.

Early Corvettes have been highly sought since there were little more than used cars, and it's easy to see why. Call today!
