Description:

If you missed the stunning dual-quad C1 we sold back in July, here''s a chance to redeem yourself! Fully-sorted and ready to roll, this NCRS Top Flight roadster mixes a correct dual-quad V8 with a rugged Borg Warner transmission and a classy, curvaceous body. These cars are unique among even the Corvette family in terms of collector appeal and driving characteristics. And if you’re looking to add a little spice to your weekend routine, they’re the perfect way to take Sunday drives to a whole new level! Are you in the market for a solid classic that you can enjoy on sunny days and cruise to local shows? Then we have the car for you! During an extensive, ground up restoration conducted by D&A Corvette of Gillespie, Illinois, this award-winning roadster’s solid body was stripped, layered in a glossy Ermine White basecoat and trimmed with clean Sateen Silver door coves. Like most C1s, the car was originally assembled at GM’s new-for-1954 St. Louis manufacturing facility; and like most restored C1s, its fit and finish presents better than it did 53 years ago. Given their fiberglass construction, curved bodies and increasing age, first generation Vettes are difficult projects that do not hide major repairs well. Judging by the looks of this roadster’s smooth fuselage, there’s no evidence it has ever seen any catastrophic damage or botched fix jobs. And currently, the car sits as one fully-sorted classic that can be proudly shown and reliably driven day in and day out. 1958 to 1962 was a banner era for the Corvette, as Chevrolet wanted to prove its new flagship could run with the best cars in the world while retaining classic style that would eventually bear an American icon. At the front of this sensational drop-top, aggressive chrome grilles ride between round, chrome-trimmed headlights, extravagant header ornamentation and small, chrome-trimmed parking lamps. In front of those grilles, intricate bumpers bend around dramatic fenders which frame sporty cross-flag emblems in sharp stainless trim. Between those fenders, a sculpted hood leads the eye to a classy wraparound windshield that’s cleared by bright stainless wipers and capped by a fresh black top. At the back of that hood, lightweight doors hang a small mirror above traditional chrome handles. And at the back of those doors, a sculpted ‘ducktail’ decklid hangs a translucent Corvette roundel between chrome-trimmed tail lights, trick exhaust tips and more bumpers that bend around equally dramatic quarters. Tilt this roadster’s lightweight hood and you’ll find a 283 cubic inch, dual-quad V8 that proudly displays a correct 3756519 casting number. Consistently chosen over Rochester’s much-hyped Ramjet fuel injection as GM’s ultimate hot rod option, this stout small block is widely regarded as the starting point of Chevrolet’s amazing performance legacy. The car’s reliable Carter carburetors, which breathe through a small, louvered air cleaner, funnel life into a correct Winter intake. At the sides of that intake, correct heads hang finned Corvette valve covers over correct, fully restored exhaust manifolds. Behind those manifolds, a Delco-Remy distributor sequences fire between a Delco-Remy coil and chrome-sleeved Radio GM TVRS wires. And in front of those wires, a beefy Harrison radiator circulates coolant through pliable GM hoses and reproduction tower clamps. In addition to its killer powerplant, this Corvette offers a thoroughly detailed engine bay that’s complete with stainless fluid lines, an old school fuel bowl, a tagged Delco-Remy generator and a reproduction Delco battery. And the car’s first rate aesthetics, which mix smooth, Satin Black framing with a bright, Chevy Orange core, create great texture and excellent contrast. Flip this C1 upside down and you’ll find a solid, road-ready X-frame that’s bolted to clean, damage-free floor tubs. Behind the hot motor, a tough Borg Warner 4-speed twists torque through a correct rear end and street-friendly gears. At the ends of the floors, a fully restored double A-arm front and solid axle rear suspension has been completely returned to factory specifications. At the corners of the car, standard equipment 4-wheel drum brakes complement good handling characteristics with solid and confident stops. Exhaust is managed by big, true-dual pipes which run from a primitive, H-shaped crossover to long, glasspack-style mufflers. Power flows to the pavement via standard 15-inch steelies, which spin fresh 6.70-15 Firestone Deluxe Champion whitewalls around traditional stainless covers. And everything from this Corvette’s leak-free fuel tank to its inspection-marked tie rods is fully sorted and ready to log miles. In keeping with this roadster’s high performance theme, interior options were kept minimal. A simple Black interior provides everything necessary without sacrificing good looks and, thanks to the car’s high quality reboot, its textured seats still have years of life left in them. There’s stain-free carpet which, thanks to color-keyed floor mats, still features a clean, fibrous sheen. Front and center, stylish, retro gauges, a Wonder Bar radio and a small chrome mirror look great decorating Chevy’s traditional, dual-cowl dash. In the middle of the floor, a petite chrome shifter is as handsome as it is stylish. In front of the driver, a speed-drilled steering wheel spins a glossy black rim around a polished cross-flag horn button. At the sides of the passengers, scuff-free door panels center perfectly placed armrests in pristine stainless trim. And behind the car’s retracted top, a fully restored trunk shows virtually no signs of usage. Exceptionally well-built and incredibly fun, this Corvette preserves the timeless swagger of 50s Americana. And, thanks to its dual-quad 283, the car is a blast to drive anytime and anywhere. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: there really isn’t a better way to enjoy your Sunday afternoons. Don’t miss your second opportunity to experience a stellar piece of motor city history!
