1958 Corvette Convertible Resto-Mod, LT4 V8 with aluminum heads and 4-speed transmission. Rally Red paint with Black interior and Black Haartz soft top. Conversion to a resto-mod touring machine was primarily the work of Street Performance Co. of Mena, Arkansas, known experts in rodding, resto-mod'ing and powertrain building. This project began with a straight original body and solid frame. Optioned with 330hp LT4 engine, new modern radio while retaining the original dash and gauges. Handling and looks were enhanced by front disc brakes, polished 17 inch Cragar Billet aluminum SS wheels and Michelin radial tires. The exterior still remains stock looking and has the stock washboard hood and trunk irons. The car's extensive chrome was also redone at time of restoration and rebuild. These type restorations normally cost between $80,000.00 to $125,000.00. This is a very good looking resto-mod that should delight any dedicated straight axle enthusiast. Looks, runs, and drives excellent.
