Description:

Corvette fans know that the 1959s are special. All the right elements came together that year, with twin headlights up front, the contrasting side coves, and the rounded rear styling that just looks right on the early solid axle cars. So that brings us to this handsome Roman Red roadster, which by all accounts is the archetypal early Corvette. They''re idolized on TV, appear in ads, and generally make everyone yearn for a younger time in their lives. This one was restored some years ago, but what that really means is that it''s like you: seasoned and experienced. It''s a car you can get in and drive anywhere and not fret about someone brushing up against priceless paint. The red and white finish is classic and still shines up nicely, with just a bit of patina that works well with the overall vibe. Gaps are about what you got from GM in 1959, but nobody will be looking at them anyway. And the chrome is quite good, with that shiny grille and just enough body jewelry to remind you that this car was built in the fabulous fifties. If there''s a more American car than this, I can''t imagine what it might be. The black interior looks fantastic thanks to a quality restoration a few years ago and careful use ever since. The seat covers are reproductions that use the same durable vinyl the originals used, and with fresh black carpets, there''s no sign of the usual sun bleaching that open cars inevitably experience. The black dash looks very businesslike in its formal wear, and the instruments stand out in bright contrast, particularly the domed speedometer and factory tach right above the steering column. Obviously inspired by European sports cars of the period, the three-spoke steering wheel has a grippy outer covering and the shifter falls easily to hand for a quick shift or just to rest your hand. A modern AM/FM/cassette stereo has been fitted in the dash, but that''s just about the only notable deviation from stock and the car''s all the better for it. A newer white top is there for emergencies and the trunk is nicely finished with a correct red rubber mat that fits well. One thing Corvettes have [almost] always had going for them is a cackling V8 soundtrack, and the snappy 283 under the forward-tilting hood of this ''59 certainly delivers. It appears quite stock, from the Quadrajet carb up top to the stock exhaust manifolds, but what that really means is that it''s as reliable as a hammer, so don''t be afraid to use it. It''s got the right parts, from the chrome air cleaner to the pretty finned aluminum valve covers, and it still spins an original generator to make juice. It''s backed by a 2-speed PowerGlide automatic transmission, but that makes it as easy to drive as your daily driver. A reproduction dual exhaust gives it just the right cackle and modern shocks improve the ride and handling to make it truly enjoyable to hustle down twisting country roads. The 6.70-15 wide whites look fantastic, especially with spinner hubcaps that are just perfect for the ''50s. If you''ve been looking for just the right blend of casual style and timeless performance, perhaps this Corvette is what you''ve been seeking. Give us a call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom. For more information, please call (817) 764-8000 or toll free (855) 877-2707.
