I’m selling my 1959 Corvette
that I have owned since 1984
It came from GM with
the 290hp fuel injected engine &
Total of 9670 corvettes were produced that year &
1542 were the Roman Red color &
only 745 were sold with the 290hp engine.
The VIN shows that it came off the
assembly line on Sept 19, 1958.
It has all the correct items that prove it came
from GM having the 290Hp engine option.
Including the high Rpm tach,
the oval hole in the firewall behind the distributor,
the windshield washer assembly on the passengers side,
aluminum heat shield between
the battery & the exhaust &
the mounting for the air cleaner
on the left side inner fender.
When I bought this in 1984
it was in the process of being restored
when the owner encountered personal problems
that required he sell before it was completed.
There had been a rebuilt engine installed.
The numbers on that engine show it to be
originally a 1965 327/350hp corvette engine.
(The numbers are 3782870 & F0507HT )
Included on the engine were the intake & the 1965 Holley carb.
Also installed were tires, brakes, exhaust, paint & bumpers.
They also did some welding on the frame, I’m assuming for rust repair.
Over the following years it got to the condition you see now,
which includes a new dash pad, carpet & upholstery.
Also in the past year I have replaced the gas tank, fuel pump,
master cylinder, rubber brake parts,
battery, plugs & wires,
At this time in my life it is time for someone else to enjoy this classic.
It is ready for you to enjoy driving it now,
as you personalize it to your taste.
Which could include installing the soft top &
door panels that are included.
Payment will be by bank wire transfer only,
with you taking possession after my bank shows cleared funds.
You will be responsible for any
shipping information & price quotes,
as I am not in the car business,
I’m just trying to sell my personal vehicle.
