The grooves on the bonnet and the chrome stripping on the boot lid disappeared in this year. The interior has had a number of improvements in terms of readability of the gauges and armrests were moved to allow for more elbow space. 1959 was also the penultimate year with these beautiful rear lights and the chrome 'teeth' in the grille which disappeared permanently in 1961 from the Corvette design. This makes the 1958-1960 one of the most sought after Corvette models. Production rose slightly to 9,670 units.
The Corvette C1 is seen less and less frequently and is becoming a rarity in the streetscape, especially in this unique colour combination.
This car starts straight away, idles nicely, accelerates powerfully and shifts smoothly through all gears. The Corvette engine with Edelbrock upgrades provides sufficient power! The engine was overhauled by the previous owner 6 years ago. The 'Turquoise' interior still looks very fresh as seen in the pictures. In addition, the Corvette has beautiful Crown Sapphire paint (the Corvette was resprayed in the original colour in the Netherlands in June 2020). A new soft top has been fitted recently.
Corvettes from 1959 are rarely offered. So don’t wait too long and grab this opportunity to become the proud new owner of this beautiful piece of American history!
