Lot #1538 - I am only the third owner of this beautifully restored 1958 Corvette convertible. The previous owner owned it for 26 years and is responsible for the complete restoration of this 50 year beauty. It looks, starts and drives as good or possibly better than it did new in 1958. It is red with white coves, red hardtop and black interior and its specifications include: Motor - stock 283/230hp; Transmission - Borge Warner, stock ratio 4-speed, original shifter; Rear End - stock ratio posi-traction; Wheels - white walls, stock caps, spare; Steering - box original worm and ratio; Cooling - stock original radiator stamped; Interior - rare charcoal black, low pile carpet and mats; Exhaust - stock 12 with heat riser, original ram hours; Charging - generator stock; Carburetor - stock original. The frame-off restoration includes, but is not limited to, paint, interior, top, chrome, brakes, exhaust system, tires, gauges, engine, transmission, rear end and trunk. It is optioned with Wonder Bar radio, courtesy lights, heater, hubcaps and white wall tires. It has factory correct components including spare tire, jack, jack tools, gas cap, radiator, generator and carburetor. In addition, this 'Vette comes with the original owner's manual, shop manual, some spare parts and steering wheel cover. "Motor Trends" March 1958 original ad is included as well, which introduces the model. This very special car can be shown, driven or put in a museum. To celebrate its 50th Anniversary, it certainly deserves to be cared for in a special way.
