1959 Chevrolet Corvette C1 283 cu/in V8

Story and History

1959 Chevrolet Corvette C1
283 cubic inch V8 with 4 speed manual gears

Such good value for money are these old 'vettes' whenever we get the opportunity to offer a good one we're always quick to take it.

Very unusual in this case to be in such a pretty and soft colour, the delicate elegance of her paint & design belies the serious performance to be discovered within.

Imported into the UK from America land in 2014 she comes with all her correct papers and certificates as well as both log books from the two UK keepers.

Once she landed here a check was carried out in January of 2015 where anything needed was taken care of, as it happens only the steering needed 'tightening up' a bit.

We know she lived in Texas for a while and was exported from South Dakota - a central American car then unaffected by sea air and totally rust free.

Our most recent keeper has stored her indoors since he bought her in 2018, together with his 9 other classic cars

Hardly using her, or at least very scarcely, so her condition is still immaculate, belying her age

The 283 cu/in V8 spurts out a terrific rumble as she starts up, thrusting forward with just a gentle prod of the accelerator and with the 4 speed manual gearbox, all boxes seem to have been ticked

So fast and nimble, she makes a super alternative to early E Type's which are vastly more expensive ...... go figure, as they say
