The grooves on the bonnet and the chrome striping on the boot lid were removed this year. The interior has had a number of improvements in terms of readability of the gauges and armrests were moved to allow for more elbow space. 1959 was also the penultimate year with these beautiful rear lights and the chrome 'teeth' in the grille which disappeared permanently in 1961 from the Corvette design. This makes the 1958-1960 one of the most sought after Corvette models. Production rose slightly to 9,670 units.
The Corvette C1 is seen less and less frequently and is becoming a rarity on the streets, especially in this classic colour combination.
This car starts straight away, idles nicely, accelerates powerfully and shifts smoothly through all gears (it also makes a beautiful sound). The Corvette engine with 230 HP provides enough power for this stylish Corvette. The previous owner restored the car about 15 years ago, you can still tell (except for minor wear which is to be expected after 15 years). The Corvette comes from a large private collection of 50 Corvettes, this enthusiast always maintained the cars with great passion and kept them in heated, indoor storage.
Corvettes from 1959 are rarely offered. So don’t wait too long and seize this opportunity to become the proud new owner of this beautiful piece of American history!
