For Sale: 1958 Chevrolet Corvette in Charlotte, North Carolina


Vehicle Description

In an era of brutal Hellcats, sensational Shelbys and mid-engine Stingrays, it's safe to say professionally built performance is alive and well. And that level of accessibility and reliability is certainly a great thing for enthusiasts and admirers alike. But what about the buyer who doesn't want the best-tailored version of a suit thousands of others can buy? You know, the person who strives to be truly one-of-a-kind. Well, they could always call up the octane junkies here at RK Motors and check out something like this amazing pro-touring Corvette. Mixing an artfully disguised LS3 with six forward gears, a trick Art Morrison chassis and looks that could charm da Vinci, this Chevy literally defines the phrase "timeless classic"!


A jaw-dropping roadster that mixes a modern stance with 1958-exclusive detailing, this stunning Vette is the product of a 4-year, ground-up restoration that was extremely thorough and exceptionally detailed. That rebuild is capped by a solid, original body that, after being completely stripped with glass beads, aligns excellent panel gaps under glossy PPG 2-stage. That pigment is led by a traditionally toothy grille, which rides between stainless-trimmed headlights, a translucent header roundel and stainless-trimmed parking lamps. At the sides of that grille, intricate bumpers bend around stainless-trimmed fenders that are detailed with small cross-flags and finned cove inserts. Between those fenders, a '58-exclusive hood leads the eye to a wiperless windshield, which supports a color-keyed hardtop. At the sides of that stainless-trimmed glass, a traditional driver's mirror complements traditional door handles. And at the back of the car, a flowing decklid hangs a second Corvette roundel and '58-exclusive trunk spears between stylish chrome bumpers and flush, stainless-trimmed taillights.


Sourced directly from Chevrolet Performance, this classic's proven LS3 utilizes 6.2 liters of displacement to create an impressive 440 horsepower! At the top of the aluminum mill, a remote filter element funnels wind into a modern throttle body with the help of custom, polished tubing. That bowl fronts trick electronic fuel injection that's been designed to mimic original Fuelie hardware. That air/fuel mixture progresses to rectangular-port L92-style heads, which tuck effortlessly under attractive valve covers that are a nice play on vintage, perimeter-bolt pieces. The fires get lit by color-keyed plug wires, which have been carefully sequenced to thoughtfully relocated coil packs. A nodular crank, powdered connecting rods and hypereutectic pistons provide compression, while a hydraulic roller cam maximizes intake efficiency. Speaking of breathing, the Chevy Orange block funnels spent gases through coated, long-tube headers. A muted aluminum radiator fronts a quick-spinning SPAL puller fan. And a Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine drive spins modern power steering beneath a polished AC compressor and a polished Powermaster alternator.


Park this pro-tourer on a lift and you'll find a spotless undercarriage that's prepped, primed and ready to roll. A tough Tremec 6-speed turns a 9-inch Ford axle that's finished with a posi-traction differential and stout, 4.30 gears. That world-class driveline is an integral part of a choice Art Morrison chassis which, in addition to employing sixth-generation Corvette suspension components, features a fully adjustable ride height thanks to Penske coil-over-shocks. At the corners of those powder-coated bones, bright Baer calipers siphon a familiar Wilwood master cylinder to squeeze large drilled and slotted rotors. The aforementioned power steering fuels a Detroit Speed rack-and-pinion set-up. Spent gases roar through stainless pipes and rowdy Kooks mufflers. And custom Forgeline wheels spin shaved Michelin Pilot Super Sports around polished lips, powder-coated spokes and polished spinners.


Pop the lightweight doors and you'll find a tastefully tweaked interior that continues this Corvette's striking visuals. Front and center, carefully reimagined buckets sport plush leather hides. In front of those seats, a leather-capped dash hangs clean Classic Instruments telemetry above direct-fit, Bluetooth audio and controls for modern air conditioning. At the bottom of that trifecta, requisite Daytona carpet floats color-keyed mats between customized side panels and a leather-booted shifter. And the driver spins a leather-wrapped and speed-drilled steering wheel.

Built for folks who like to show and go, this Corvette is the perfect opportunity to own a tasteful, lights-out classic that's virtually unmatched in appeal and drivability. The car looks absolutely timeless. And with a roster of top notch equipment that's already carefully spec-d and seamlessly assembled, it's a one-way ticket to instant gratification!
