Description

Lot #983 - Original unrestored survivor. Bloomington Survivor 2012, NCRS Chapter 91.5 Second Flight in 2009 and was judged as purchased. 283/270hp engine with high-lift cam and dual quads. Options include radio delete, heavy duty brakes and 15 x 5 ?" wheels. 49,179 original miles and documented three owner car. One of the finest examples of a highly original, unrestored C1 Corvette you will find. Interior, exterior, chassis and engine, including exterior paint, softtop, interior carpets and trunk mats have been deemed to be mostly original by both Bloomington and NCRS judges. All numbers correct and matching. Production date July 1958. Purchased new at Strong Chevrolet, Damariscotta, ME and traded in at the same dealership 11 years later for a new '69 Tri-Power Vette. Dealership employee purchased car after the trade-in and maintained meticulous ownership for next 39 years until 2008. Virtually nothing has been done to restore or recondition this Corvette. The cold Maine winters, a short driving season and meticulous pride of ownership has preserved this car incredibly well over the years. Unrestored C1 Corvettes are getting harder and harder to find in any type of condition. In addition to the originality, this radio delete '58 should also be noted for its rare combination silver blue exterior with charcoal interior, big brakes, dual quads, high-lift cam and 5 ?" wheels.
