It is almost impossible to overstate the position of the 1958 model in the hearts of the Corvette enthusiasts... Being the fifth year of Corvettes, the 1958 came with a nice and attractive re-design, also with some cool features that were available only for that year like the washboard hood and the trunk spears. Combine this with the dual round headlamps and other new features, then add the classy Signed Red with the White coves and you have a WINNER!
That is exactly our offer today! A beautifully off-frame restored 1958, with the desirable 283/270 HP dual-four matching numbers combination. Actual owner of the Vette was a NCRS judge who aquired it twenty-some years ago when it put it through a thorough off-frame restoration where car was taken apart to every nut and bolt and put back together right. All this is documented with pics and records, also seen the attached video.
To start, the body was taken off the frame, put on a cart and sent to the body shop while the frame was restored. Body was stripped to fiber glass, primed with an epoxy primer, then shot with six coats of Acrylic laquer paint, then three coats of clear coat. All Chrome was triple plated and has a perfect mirror look.
Engine is the correct 3737739 block with the correct F710CU suffix stamped on the engine block signifying as follows: F = Flint Plant, 710 = July 10th production, CU 283/270 HP correct rating. Car was produced August 1958, sequence # 9072. Every nut, bolt and washer was out of the engine, transmission, rear, the put back together. Carburetor is correct, manifolds are correct... It got new wiring harness, new exhaust, new brakes, new drums, all new springs, complete new suspension (2001), Wiper mechanism was restored. Tires are new with less than 1000 miles. Transmission is a correct Borg-Warner Aluminum T-10.
Interior is new, carpet is new, dash is restored, AM Wonderbar radio is functional (has FM too), clock works... Has a stylish upgraded steering wheel, also, the original one is available, needing restoration. All is in working order with the exception of the gas gauge (may need a sending unit), also the tachometer is broken.
This is a very fine example of a very desirable 1958 Corvette with the high HP rating, restored to a very high degree, featuring the most desirable color combination. It is definitely a collectible today with great appreciation potential.
