Vehicle Description

Up for sale is one gorgeous, 1956 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster convertible. California car with California title and only in the northeast since 2009. Stored in doors and only driven on nice summer days ever since. Stunning paint and body done in Cascade Green with white coves and a beige interior. This vette packs a dual quad 283 motor and a Tremec 5 speed manual transmission. You can take this car on the highway and cruise at 70 MPH with no issues at all. The fiberglass body is un-hit and un-patched. Everything opens and closes perfectly. The vette rides on its original, un-cut and un-patched frame, the underneath is beautiful (see pictures). The paint is just about show quality, super vibrant and nice and flat with a deep shine. There is a couple minor chips near the kick plate when you open the door, and one when you flip up the gas fill door. There is also a scratch on the bottom passenger rear fender that is near impossible to see unless you are down on the ground up close looking for it (see picture). Mind you, these are all minor and do NOT take away from how beautiful this car really is. All the chrome and stainless are in beautiful condition, no scratches, pitting or any type of hazing. All the glass is in excellent shape with no scratches or chips. The windows also go up and down with ease. The convertible top was new 2 years ago and in excellent shape, no punctures and no staining. The whitewall tires, wheels and hubs are all like new condition. The interior is a 9.8 out of a 10. The seat upholstery and the dash eyebrow is all brand new from Al Knock Corvette interiors which is the best you can buy. All the gauges work including the factory tach. All the instruments and original steering wheel were sent out by the previous owner and were completely restored. The carpet, door panels and everything else are in beautiful condition. Not much to really say about the interior except the fact that it is in beautiful condition. The dual quad 283 motor runs absolutely beautifully. It fires right up with out issue, idles perfectly, has plenty of get up and go power and doesn't smoke, tick or have any weird noises. It will run nice and cool around 160-180 degrees even on the hot summer days sitting in traffic. The Tremec 5 speed manual transmission makes this car an absolute delight to drive. You can buzz around town and if need be, jump on the highway and cruise at an easy 70 MPH in 5th gear. The gearbox has a nice tight gear placement and has no slop, it also has a nice short throw in between gears. The clutch has a perfect grabbing point with no shakes or slipping while driving. Going down the road this vette drives like it is brand new. It drives straight down the road with no vibrations or steering slop. If you hit the manual brakes you stop nice and straight with no pulling. This 1956 Corvette is a beautiful car. There are no stories and it is 100% ready for the new owner to enjoy. The car has always been lovingly maintained and cared for. Just get in, turn the key and head off to the beach. If you like getting attention then this is the car for you. Don't miss out on this opportunity to own a unique piece of history in one of the most iconic cars or all time! 207-400-5326
