Description

Lot #839 - Body-off restoration. Has only 125 miles showing since its restoration and looks great. It's equipped with a 283/245hp engine with correct engine casting number 3756519. It also has dual 4-barrel carburetors with correct GM casting number for the intake manifold (37339653). The 4-speed manual transmission rear differential has 3.08 to 1 gear ratio, which makes it a good highway vehicle. The engine was completely rebuilt. It has a new clutch and pressure plate; transmission and rear differential has been disassembled and rebuilt as necessary. All gauges are in working order, including the tachometer. It has five brand-new Firestone tires (includes a new spare). It also has a complete new interior, carpet, door panels and dash. All the chrome was replated or is new. It features the correct paint and interior combination for a 1959 Corvette. The exterior is Inca Silver with Snow Crest White coves and black interior. This is a very nice car.
