Meet our amazing 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible shown in a rare Inca Silver with Roman Red interior (rare color combination – only 957, out of 9,000+ painted this color in 1959). This convertible has an unmistakable body that makes it look mean. This numbers matching car announces that this Corvette came to compete. It's this kind of prowess that makes the car attract far more attention than the perfectly restored 1959 Corvettes. But there is a more practical side too. Regardless of how you use this car, it still has all the great 1st generation Corvette hallmarks.

Inside is one of the most honest cars on this earth. The red on the dashboard, door cards, and vinyl seats complement the unique color on this roadster. Just like the outside, there is the right amount of chrome touches to be a nice reminder of post-WWII American style. The instrument cluster is original and as intended from the factory, the interiors of these Corvettes fit drivers like a glove. The bucket seats are armchair comfortable without being too bouncy like the sedans of this era. The three-spoke steering wheel is thin but knobby for a great grip and easy control without the intrusion of power steering.

All of this go-fast appearance needs to be backed up with some real power, right? This Corvette doesn't disappoint with a tuned 283 V8 mated to a 4 Speed Manual transmission. All of this extra grunt is put to the road through a 3.36 rear end with GM's Positraction. It gives this solid-axle car a sure grip and quick take off quick from the line. Best of all, despite looking like a racetrack veteran, this classic has never been entered in competition from what we can tell.

Recent upgrades (2014): Mallory electronic ignition, Rack & Pinion Power Steering, Front anti-sway bar, 4 Wheel laser alignment;,Rebuilt & resealed transmission, New radial tires (all original parts available). Seats reupholstered (2012). Black soft top (replacement). AM/FM stereo cassette (replacement). Chrome in very good condition.

This Corvette is now at a crossroads. It can be ideal for the street or the road course. No matter which way you go, this is a classic roadster you can jump in today, turn the key, and go for a cool cruise. It won't last. This Convertible is a must see and drive!
