1958 CHEVROLET CORVETTE

In 1958, General Motors legendary stylist and designer of the original 1953 Corvette Harley Earl retired. The 1958 Corvette represents Harley Earls final influence on Corvette design and features many 1 year only design traits. The non functional louvered washboard hood and dual chrome trunk spears were only available on the 1958. This year also introduced many changes that stayed around until the introduction of the C2 1963 generation. This was the first year for the dual headlamps up front, the scoops in the coves, and the 9-tooth chrome grill. The beautiful and very original 1958 Corvette you see here is painted in a rare charcoal grey with silver side coves. The paint has a few rough areas but gives the car a nice classic patina. The whitewall tires and white convertible top set off the dark charcoal paint and give this Corvette a lot of visual flash. Inside, the bright red interior has the same original feel as the outside. There was not a lot of optional equipment available in 1958, but this Corvette comes with an AM radio and heater and the optional 4-speed manual transmission that was introduced late in 1957. Under the hood you will find a stock 283 CID V-8 with single 4 barrel carburetor. This engine was factory rated at 230HP, and in combination with the 4-speed gave the Corvette a real sports car feel, helping to escape it's 6 cylinder/automatic roots. This Corvette would make a great driver to enjoy and cruise in, or a great starting point for a concours car.
