Lot #1029 - Corvette styling was jazzed up for 1958. This fully restored Corvette comes equipped with a 283/245hp engine and Powerglide transmission. Chevy manufactured 9,168 units of the 1958 models, but only 510 were painted Regal Turquoise like this one. This car comes with documentation of the restoration and photos from start to finish. This car took nearly two years to complete. Not only is this a rare color, but this year was also the first year of the twin trunk chrome spears, it marked the first time the factory installed seat belts and the dual carburetor engine was equipped with glass fuel filter bowls.
