Chevrolet : Corvette white
1958 Chevrolet corvette-I am the second owner- this was a one owner car that was bought new in September of 1958 in Chicago by a man who lived in kalamazoo Michigan- he wanted a 58 as the 59's were out and he wanted a white with red interior car with the chrome spears on the decklid- Chicago was the only place he could find one. he drove it around Michigan until 1966 when it was parked outside for a year and they moved to the Cincinnati area. . the next year (1967) they brought it back to cincy and parked it in the barn where it sat for the next 46 years. while it sat outside in Michigan a tree limb punctured the convertible top and the interior suffered some minor damage and wear. when it was brought home to the new place the right rear bumperette was jammed in to the fiberglass below the trunk when it was run into a beam in the barn (easy fix) this is the only damage to the body. in 1977 the son rebuilt the motor in it but never took it out to drive.. the block was replaced by Chevrolet the second winter cause of lack of anti-freeze letting it freeze up and crack. it has a 1961 replacement block in it- the 2x4's setup(245 horse) was stolen off of it sometime in the year s between 1999 and 2003. so was the distributor and valve covers.it now has an old edelbrock intake and 600 holley and a chev distributor w/pertronix guts and stagger bolt vette valve covers- the car still retains its original 3 speed and it has a posi rear end (ratio unknown) it has the factory radiator but I did have a new core put in it last year.i always wanted a straight axle early vette and I felt this was the one to do it to. the car could be restored but then its just another boring stocker for the vette people to pick apart- the body and gaps and fit of the car is really nice- the straight axle is a jokerr fabricating item and uses the stock 58 spindles and brakes which are all new and rebuilt with all new lines and dual master cylinder. it has a vega steering box and actually drives nice and rides decent (drives better than stock front end) I didn't do anything underneath from the cowl back so it is still crusty and has cob webs and stuff but that is the way I intended. you can park this car next to a ncrs concourse vette and its gonna piss off the owner of it when they are leanin on his car to look at this one. its dirty and paint fallin off but that's why I did it as you cant buy or produce patina like this- this is by the way the original paint on the car- the interior is original except the seat cushions were shot so these are redone on foam- the springs were shot- I have material to do the backrests if needed.-fuel-amp-oil pressure gauges work- tach doesn't(needs new cable) and speedo is noisy but works (needs greased??)heater is in it- disconnected ?? car is a factory radio delete so it has the original delete plate and no ignition shielding- it has a 58 hardtop but it has a 59 rear glass in it and the soft top framework is in under the deck- it has no canvas as I removed it- it does fold ok the trunk has no latch and the hood support is missing and the cables for the hood releases are froze up . it has no emergency brake- the turn signals don't work- the horn works the relay but the horn doesn't blow- hi beams have old t-3 bulbs but they don't work- running and brake lights are ok this car runs and drives fine - I think it needs a wild ass motor in it but I kind of like it as is. the fenderwell headers exit through turbo mufflers that exit at the rear end housing .the wheels are rare American racing t-70's 15x8 rears and the fronts are 15x7 narrowed to 15x5's w/ bf Goodrich radial tires(not period correct but it sure drives good) (I will take $ 1500 .00 less for the car minus wheels and tires) I have copys of the original title and the family transfer title , and the one to me all dating back to new. also available are all the parts taken off and this car could easily be restored back to original by removing 4 welded (to frame) brackets on the front end.
ive tried to be as honest about the workings and non workings of the car as I don't like surprises and don't like giving them.. its not perfect but its damn sure cool as it can be. its a real attention grabber and you don't have to worry about a duplicate parking next to you at a cruise in or car show and it is still a 58 corvette. any questions or concerns feel free to call or come and inspect...513-932-1933 or if no answer(no machine) call 513-235-7768 or email at email@example.com car is sold as is and I reserve right to end auction early as it is for sale locally-- possible PREPAID delivery within 400 miles of Lebanon, ohio CALL FIRST AND ASK -- NO TEXTS
