Description

French registration

- One of the most popular classic Corvette
- Nice presentation
- Pleasant and usable

Of American provenance, the Corvette convertible was imported into France in the 2000s and its current owner made its acquisition in 2013. The car is powered by a V8, a 283 (4.6 liters) developing 230bhp, and is mated to a manual four-speed gearbox, as befits this sporty model. The car features a two-tone theme, frequently encountered at the time. The red and white set highlights perfectly the original line of this 1959 model. It is one of the most sought after Corvette models, with the four headlamps grille and its rounded rear.
Restored in the United States, this car has a black leatherette interior and brown carpeting, in good used condition. The counter shows 56,808 miles and the beige soft top is in good condition. The dashboard with its drilled steering wheel and its row of round instrumentation is reminiscent of sporting cars while responding to the 1950's exuberant style.
This sound car is perfectly suitable for the modern traffic, and ideal for enjoying the back roads with the mellow sound of its powerful V8!
