Lot #679 - Imagine if Chevrolet had the technology in 1959 that they have today. Before you today is that modern Corvette with all the right parts. This project started with an excellent 1959 Corvette body that was then covered in mirror-like Frost Blue with silver coves. The body was set down on a new SRIII chassis with all modern Corvette suspension and drivetrain. The suspension provides a like new Corvette ride with all modern options including power steering, and power 4-wheel disc brakes. This chassis was completed with a 350hp LS1 engine and 4-speed automatic transmission. The interior is covered in Al Knoch blue leather including the dash and door panels. This Corvette has been professionally built with excellent attention to detail and everything is either new or restored with show quality standards in mind. You must take a look underneath this car to understand the time and money spent to bring a car to this caliber of build. This is not a trailer queen build with special suspension or engine, this Corvette was built to drive just like a new Corvette would and it can be driven anywhere.
