1959 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 283 CID V8 245 HP
Transmission: 4-Speed Manual
Mileage: 91,410 ( actual )

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is very pleased to offer this absolutely immaculate 1959 Chevrolet Corvette roadster (RPO 867) for sale right now in our Arizona showroom. This beauty comes equipped with everything a C1 performance Corvette enthusiast could want - the numbers-matching engine is factory-rated at 245 HP (RPO 469) when equipped with the dual four barrel carbs and a regular camshaft. Of course, all the power is transmitted through a BW T-10 manual 4-spd transmission (RPO 685) to a posi-traction rear axle (RPO 675). This American icon is painted a very rare color called Frost Blue (502A) with complementing white coves (510A). The red interior really pops with this exterior color combination. Of the 9,670 Corvettes built in 1959, just 1,024 were painted this striking color, putting this color's production at just 10.6% of the yearly total. No further breakdown exists of cove colors and interior colors. If so, this car would undoubtedly be much rarer than that. The icing on the cake for this roadster is that it has been awarded NCRS credentials. Vey impressive and when you see this car in person, you'll quickly understand why. Nicely optioned with an AM Radio (RPO 102), whitewall tires (RPO 290), two tone paint (RPO 440), folding top (470), this amazing '59 'vette will be the focal point of any collection or the best car that most people can say they've ever had!

1959 Chevrolet Corvette

1959 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 283 CID V8 270HP 2x4BL
Transmission: 4 Speed Manual
Mileage: 60,200 ( undocumented )

For sale in our Dallas-Ft. Worth showroom is this gorgeous tuxedo black 1959 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. This stunning car has a beautiful red interior, a 270 hp 2x4 solid lift 283 with a 4-speed transmission and wide whitewalls with knockoff hubcaps. To the credit of all involved, the 1959 Corvette was “cleaned up” considerably. For one, the chrome “suspenders” were removed from the design, providing Corvette with a more swept back look that was synonymous with speed. For another, it was decided that the faux hood louvers would be eliminated, returning the Corvette to a semblance of its former self. While these features were key identifiers of the 1958 Corvette, there was no question that the elimination of the excessive chrome would reduce weight and help increase performance. Much like the exterior of the Corvette, the interior received minor, but significant updates as well. Both the door handles and the armrests were repositioned and a small-item storage compartment was added beneath the passenger side grab bar. In addition, both the driver and passenger seats were redesigned to offer increased lateral support of their occupants. All tachometers now indicated up to 7,000 rpm and offered redline and safe limit indicators. Sun visors were introduced to the 1959 Corvette as a new option and concave instrument lenses replaced the flat covers of the 1958 Corvette, thereby reducing sun glare (and other reflections) that might cause a driver to become distracted.

For an attractive contrast, this sports car's coves are white, offering anyone who looks at it a visual experience they rarely get with a collector car.The tan-colored top and the all-red interior offer a nice over-all contrast. This was probably the car that Prince envisioned when he wrote his huge hit "Little Red Corvette". Purists will appreciate the deluxe wheelcovers and the wide whitewall tires. This was the year that Chevrolet was able to squeeze one horsepower per cubic inch out of the 283 V-8. America's first and only true sports car had now come of age, and the '57 fuelie models were the ones that the next generation of Corvettes would be compared to. This 'vette has a freshly rebuilt engine and every effort has been made to adhere to NCRS standards throughout the restoration. The somewhat-temperamental fuel injection unit has been dialed in perfectly and the entire drivetrain works flawlessly, making this red rocket a true driver's car, not just a trailer queen. With the four speed manual transmission and the live rear axle, this beauty is a real go-er and a gorgeous show-er. Nothing attracts attention like a C1 Corvette in this combination of colors and options; you'll always be the center of attention when you're out behind the wheel of this undeniably-legendary 1957 Chevy Corvette. This is the classic 1957 Red Corvette with White Coves. Like the two-tone shoes of that era, the two-tone Corvette was a symbol of style and elegance. So, Don't miss this opportunity to put your name on the title of this stunning American sports car.To see 100-plus pictures and a video of this 1957 Chevrolet Corvette for sale and for more information or to schedule an appointment to view this vehicle in person, please call the Scottsdale showroom at 623-900-4884 or email us directly at scottsdale@gatewayclassiccars.com See more at: http://www.gatewayclassiccars.com/SCT/134/1957-Chevrolet-Corvette
