For Sale at Auction: 1959 Chevrolet Corvette in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This Resto-Mod 1959 Downs-body Corvette is a no-expense-spared build and PPG Street Nationals award winner. The goal was to maintain the Corvette's Rubenesque contours while sweeping them clean of any interruption. It rides on Billet Specialties rail wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagles, behind which are brightly finished C4 Corvette brakes with slotted and cross-drilled rotors. The smoothed engine compartment is home to an LS1 Corvette small-block V8 engine pushing north of 400hp and driving a Billet Specialties serpentine belt accessory drive system. The 5.7-liter engine is backed by a TREMEC 6-speed manual transmission and a Ford 9-inch rear end. The car is built on a full-custom tube chassis using C4 independent front suspension with coilover shocks providing the dampening. The custom interior showcases the skilled workmanship and creative design of Dave Schober, who matched the smoothed and painted surfaces with hand-stitched white upholstery on the door panels, seats, kick panels and shifter boot. The diamond-tufted seat and door inserts are a trick extra touch. A custom console with Hurst shifter, AutoMeter classic gauges, Vintage Air and billet controls round out the interior appointments. Everything about this car is custom and the car was the 2014 Detroit Autorama Best in Show winner. ** PREVIEW
