For Sale at Auction: 1958 Chevrolet Corvette in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This award-winning 1958 Pro-Touring Corvette is a fresh build with test miles only and was professionally restored and custom built with modern technology throughout. For added comfort and to accommodate taller occupants, it's been modified to add 7 extra inches between the steering wheel and seat, and 2 extra inches in the footwell compared to a standard C1 Corvette. Power comes from a GM Racing Gen 5 LT1 (LT376/535) direct-injected 6.2-liter V8 crate engine that puts out 535hp and 470 ft/lbs of torque. The engine has a custom air intake, a Billet Specialties polished front drive system and is paired with a 4L75E 4-speed automatic transmission. It has a custom-made super-tube chassis equipped with C7 Corvette front and rear suspension, C7 Z06 front and rear sway bars, and QA1 performance adjustable coilovers with 18 levels of ride control. The rear end has a Winters Quick Change differential with 3.70 gears and HD performance axles with machined in ZR1 hubs. It has a custom-tuned stainless steel cross-over exhaust system exiting through the rear bumper. This custom Corvette rides on 18- and 19-inch custom Schott wheels with tri-bar knockoffs wrapped in Diamondback Redline tires. For safety, the braking system utilizes a dual system with electric over hydraulic power disc brakes. The body is all-original and was completely stripped, professionally body-worked with laser straight panels and proper gaps. Then stunningly finished in House of Kolor Lexus Candy Apple Red metallic and topped with a Haartz black cloth convertible top. The custom double-stitched maroon leather interior has a matching dash, custom door panels and reclining seats, Flaming River tilt column, Vintage Air operated by the original knobs, rebuilt gauges with new electronics and a SkyDrive GPS speedometer. Other features include QuickSteer performance power rack & pinion steering, stainless steel fuel tank, custom Dewitts radiator with electric fan, an electric parking brake, power hood actuator, power windows, side door mirrors with built-in turn signals, LED front bumper running lights, custom Autosound stereo and hydraulic shocks on the convertible top deck and trunk lid. The bumpers are tucked, all chrome is triple-plated, stainless trim is show quality, and it has all new tinted glass and seat belts. World of Wheels "Outstanding Engineered" award winner. The sale includes an extensive photo album of build. ** PREVIEW
