Chevrolet Corvette C1 1958
Chevrolet Corvette C1
SOLD --- This Corvette C1 is in NEW condition. An absolute beautiful car with a rare color.
Paint is in perfect condition, so is the chrome. Looks like it just came out of the factory. Also not a lot of corvette C1's were made in this color.
Interior is also in very good condition and does not show any signs of rips or tears. Carpets are really clean and leather is still in super condition.
One of the best C1's we have driven. A special feature of this car, which only 900 of these C1's have, is that the car has an automatic soft top. (see video) Contact us for more information about the mechanics.
In an era of chrome and four headlamps, the Corvette adapted to the look of the day. The 1958 model year and the four that followed all had the exposed four-headlamp treatment and prominent grilles, but a faux-louvered hood and chrome trunk spears were unique to 1958. The interior and instruments were updated, including placing a tachometer directly in front of the driver. For the 1958 model, an 8000 rpm tachometer was used with the 270 hp (200 kW) and 290 hp engines, rather than the 6000 rpm units used in the lower horsepower engines. Optional engine choices included two with twin carburetors (including a 270 hp model with Carter 2613S and 2614S WCFB four-barrels) and two with fuel injection. Power output for the highest-rated fuel-injected engine was 290 hp. Displacement remained 283 cid. For the first time, seat belts were factory-installed rather than being dealer-installed as on previous models. Rare options were RPO 684 heavy-duty brakes and suspension (144), RPO 579 250 hp engine (554), RPO 276 15"×5.5" wheels (404).
