Lot #1050 1958 CHEVROLET CORVETTE CUSTOM CONVERTIBLE
Lot #1050 - This 1958 Corvette is a beautiful creation designed by one of our country's leading spaceship engineers. It was a five-year build and it shows with this little gem. The base of this car is a 1958 highly modified frame with C4 rack & pinion coilover front end with billet coilover shocks, and incorporates a 1961 rear section body with a 1963 327, custom-polished electronic fuel injection system and manifold complete with oxygen sensors and onboard computer. The car features a Tremec 5-speed transmission with hydraulic clutch and Hurst shifter with cruise control, a Morrison 4-link posi-traction 12-bolt rear end with billet cover and axle supports. The brake system has performance calipers. The body has full 3M undercoating. A true pleasure to drive, this Corvette handles and feels like a brand-new car of today's standards. This car was built and driven for 3,000 miles before an extreme detail-documented disassembly, and every part has been powder coated and or painted. The custom header exhaust system has been ceramic-coated from the heads to the tailpipe. The beautiful paint is triple-black Standox paint with the coves done in a misty diamond pearl effect. The gauge clusters are Dolphin gauges and the custom interior features a custom billet steering wheel with custom leather seats, cut pile carpet with Dynomat, in addition to padding with sound block. Custom Auto Sound 200 watt AM/FM sound system with auxiliary inputs for iPod/MP3/DVD/Satellite. Also features kick panels with HiFi speakers and removable hardtop. The wheels are custom-built Hopster polished wheels with Nitto high performance tires.
