Description:

The 1959 Corvette is a favorite among solid axle fans, and you might be wondering why this one is so affordable. Well, the answer is: we don''t know. It looks good, has a powerful 327 under the hood, a shift-it-yourself gearbox, and a great color combination. It''s driver grade, but there''s no shame in that, so if you''re tired of looking at $60,000 ''Vettes, you should spend some time examining this one carefully. The paint was done a few years ago and it''s showing a few signs of age, but like beautiful women, early Corvettes only seem to become more attractive with a few flaws. It shows character and looking at a car like this, you''d expect it to have lived through some adventures. Experts will note that the burgundy paint, which looks a lot like Madeira Maroon, isn''t technically correct for 1959, but with the contrasting white side cove, it''s certainly period perfect. It was a high-quality repaint when it was done and is now showing a few signs of age, but the fiberglass underneath is in excellent condition and the paint shines up quite well with a vintage look that''s entirely appropriate. You''ll note that the doors, hood, and trunk fit quite nicely, and the curvaceous rear end treatment is often preferred to the later Sting Ray styling that came in 1961. Chrome is very good, particularly the toothy front grille and all the correct emblems are in place. The burgundy interior is likewise not correct, but the patterns are the way the factory would have done it, and quite honestly the combination looks awesome. Contrasting black door panels and dash give it a sporty look and with that upright 3-spoke steering wheel in your hands, you''ll almost be able to hear the crowds cheering at Daytona or Lemans. A full set of factory gauges, including a tachometer mounted in the center, gives you a good view of what''s going on under the hood, and the 4-speed shifter with Hurst cue ball knob falls easily to hand. Corvettes were still simple creatures, but this one does include civilized features like heat, a cowl vent, an AM radio, and a clock. A white convertible top is there for emergencies, and a removable factory hardtop is available (call for details). The trunk is big and usefully shaped, and includes a full-sized spare and a set of original wheels that obviously need restoration but are nice to have nonetheless. The engine is a 1962-vintage 327 cubic inch V8, which obviously looks right at home under the hood. A few correct details like the generator and ram''s horn exhaust manifolds mix with a few period speed parts like the Mickey Thompson valve covers to give the old ''Vette a look of colorful history. You know it''s bulletproof, and even though it''s not detailed for show, the block has been given a coat of Chevy Orange paint and there''s plenty of evidence that it''s been well maintained. It runs great, pulls hard, and makes all the right sounds, and you''ll never worry about damaging an irreplaceable engine while you''re out enjoying yourself. The underside is quite original, but the naked frame and floors have nothing to hide and a dual exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers cackles like a car like this should. True-Spoke chrome wire wheels were a popular accessory and are fitted with spinners and 205/75/15 whitewall radials for a traditional early ''Vette look. No, it''s not a show car, but if you''ve been yearning for a C1 but found most of them are out of reach, this is a refreshing piece of very affordable fiberglass. 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.
