Chevrolet Corvette 1959 Description

For sale is a very clean 1959 Corvette. This is an excellent DRIVER Quality car. The frame and complete underside of the ca, as well as the body are all EXCELLENT ! Frame has ZERO issues or rot, please see photos. Body is straight and ALL wheel opening edges as well as rocker edges are extremely clean. The frame is simply awesome. Either the car had a very nice restoration when painted with lacquer roughly 20+ years ago, or it was an extremely clean survivor. It was purchased by the prior owner in Florida, and I suspect this has been a southern car for many years. The paint is in good condition in most areas with the worst spots being across the center of the hood and front fenders being hazy from checking aged lacquer paint. There is also a spot in the center of the hood where it's obvious someone years ago installed a carburetor stud that was too tall, and created a spider web in the paint. Its a true five footer, and from that distance the car looks incredible withvery rich and deep glossy paint. You could just paint the hood and upper fenders to get by for another ten years.All Chrome and trim is correct and present and in very nice shape as well. The car includes a very nice hardtop as well as a near new white soft top, albeit probably 20-ish years old. Interior is very nice with some sun fade to the exposed carpetpieces (car spent almost the last 20 years with the top down) and a few spots of discoloration to the door panels. All else is excellent. The engine is a NON-original but era correct 283 (Casting number is NOT for a Corvette) but there is a correct un-bored short block local to me with the correct casting number for $300.00. Generator still present, the car fires right up and runs smooth and quiet. The transmission is a four speed, and I have no idea if it is correct. Rear end appears to be original. Shifts and goes down the road well. ALL Gauges work as does the aftermarket Cassette player, the only non-stock style accessory. Wheels were just added, rims are NOT date code correct for the car and the hub caps are very nice quality NEW reproductions. Tires areolder and should be replaced with some correct wide whites.Custom Ultra wheels (as seen in one photo) were added years ago, and will be included if Buy it now is used should you want them, and your carrier will take them. The car has about six different appearances with the wheel swap and either hard/soft or No top ! Overall this is a super clean car that you can drive and enjoy without worrying about a stone chip or scratch and if desired could easily be made into a high end resto. car. I have over 150 HI-RES photos that I can e-mail to interested buyers, and I will furnish my phone number to real perspective buyers. I WELCOME and ENCOURAGE inspection of the car PRIOR to bidding ! Please ask ALL questions Before bidding and ONLY bid if you are a capable buyer WITH funds AVAILABLE !! $1000 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit due within 48 hours of auction close via PayPal, and BALANCE within ten days of auction close. BUYER responsible for transport / shipping of car, of course local pick up would be great. Car is located in Southern Wisconsin, about an hour North of O'Hare in Chicago, 30 Miles South of Madison WI. and about 60 miles West of Milwaukee. Thanks for looking, you will thoroughly enjoy this ride !!
