1958 Corvette Resto-Mod
Performance is a sports car pedigree and that has always been so in
Corvettes. A true sports car must handle with precision and corner
with positive control, it must withstand long periods at high rpm
without a whimper.
This Corvette is one of the best in the world ever customer built
frame/ chassis by Robert Kessings; an enviable ratio of power to
weight. We have a 1958 Corvette Resto-Mod here at Adventure
Classics that is all these things and more. It is a must see as it
is a no-expense spared custom one off build with hundreds of man
hours dedicated to this Corvette.

It has a stunning color combo of dark and light grey metallic that
shines and looks great from all angles. Fit and finish are
excellent throughout as is expected on this level of a Corvette,
with tight door gaps and smooth panels and those iconic side coves

1958 models have those hood louvers, front toothy grills, and trunk
trim that were exclusive to this year and it makes this year
Corvette unique and desirable.
