Lot #524.1 - This custom-built, gold over cream cove re-creation of the '58 Corvette took over 1 and a half years to build by Street Rods Only. It has the original look washboard hood and trunk irons symbolic of this year only, plus widened wheel wells for bigger tires and rims. The fiberglass is better than the original's and the custom two tone leather interior is complete with built-in cup holders, special embroidery, power windows, power steering, tilt wheel, custom wood and leather steering wheel, power hood, power trunk, custom stereo with DVD, navigation and other unique touches. This car is fast. So be forewarned that this brand new 550hp LS2 Supercharged Corvette V8 engine and automatic transmission will propel you down the road like a missile and should only be left in the hands of an experienced driver. She was designed to retain an almost stock look on the outside with a custom interior and all upgraded mechanical systems, drivetrain, suspension systems, electrical wiring, etc. As an example of the quality build, she has custom wheel made to replicate the original '58's hubcaps, but in a slightly larger 18" size to improve handling characteristics. This car draws a crowd everywhere she goes and proves the point that you can indeed improve on the original with a little care, understanding and time. This car was driven by Mariah Carey for her new video "I stay in love" which should be out in a few weeks. A signed picture of Mariah Carey driving the car is included in the sale. Don't let this very special Corvette get away.
