Car Details

THE VETTE NET is a professional Corvette brokerage networkand proud Lifetime Business Member of the National Corvette Museum. Thanks for stopping by.

IMPORTANT DETAILS: Allow me to present to you this beautiful BIG BRAKE 1959 Red Corvette. It is certainly a historically significant Corvette worthy of your serious consideration.

An extremely small number (142) of these “big brake” Corvettes were produced in 1959 and you are looking at one of them. In fact, this particular Corvette also has the European version speedometer showing kilometers (KM) as well as miles per hour (MPH). It is entirely possible this Corvette may have been racing in Europe. The owner has not been able to trace the Corvette’s history (yet).

Numerous big brake components have survived over the years and are still on (or come with) the car. The most obvious are the finned brake drums and front air ducts. More details are available upon request.

The Corvette is located in NEW YORK state.

SPECIFICATIONS as reported by the owner:

• 867--Base Corvette Convertible with Red Interior
• 440--Two-tone Exterior Paint (Red & White)
• 469C--283 c.i., 270hp Engine (2/4 Barrel Carburetors) with Duntov Cam
• 675--Positraction Axle
• 684--Heavy Duty Brakes and Suspension
• 685--4-speed Manual Transmission
• 101--Heater
• 102--AM Radio Signal Seeking
• 261--Sun Shades

CONDITION RATING  7+: The owner rates the overall cosmetic condition of his Corvette as very good (rating it at 7+). The paint is well preserved and looks very nice. The chrome and stainless are in fine condition as is all the glass. The Red vinyl interior shows signs of use but still is very presentable. The undercarriage is clean and solid.   

The Corvette receives annual maintenance (lube, oil, filter) and is driven occasionally. The owner reports the Corvette runs very strong and tracks straight down the highway.

This very limited production “big brake” 1959 Corvette can be an excellent addition to your collection. Don’t miss out on this opportunity.
