The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!


The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.


Classic Car Overview

(Please note: If you happen to be viewing this vehicle on a website other than our main website, its possible that only some of our many photographs of this car are presented due to website limitations. To be sure you access all the photographs, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible - One of 1,024 finished in Frost Blue Garage Kept Motors is pleased to present this beautifully restored 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible for consideration. Our client acquired the car in 2005 from the second owner, Carlton W. Galer, who owned the car since April 5, 1968. They completed a full restoration in 2006 and it is one of the nicest restored first generation Corvettes weve ever seen. This client also restored the 1961 Chevrolet Impala Bubble Top on our website. His work is impeccable, as you will see from the photo gallery. The car came from the factory in this color combination. Frost Blue over a red interior with a white soft top. Only 1,024 cars were finished in Frost Blue. The car was restored to factory original specifications, but even better than when it left the St. Louis plant. The original paint can be found inside the center console. It was untouched with the original sticker still in tact to prove originality. The car came with a 283ci/270hp engine; however, the original block had issues and was replaced by a period correct 1959 Corvette block. It was professionally rebuilt by John Benson Jr. Power is transferred through a 4-speed manual gearbox with a Hurst shifter and front disc brakes. Chrome 5-spoke Cragar wheels are wrapped in new rubber. The car starts, runs, and drives exceptionally well and garnishes attention/awards wherever driven. We love the color combination on this Corvette. The paint is as close to perfection as you can get. It is a stunning vehicle and offered at a very reasonable price point, considering Hagerty values No. 2 cars over $100k. All the hard work has been done. Just needs a new garage to call home. It even comes with the original title from the second owners dated back to 1968. You are guaranteed to enjoy your time in this 1959. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors. Call if interested or e-mail with any questions. Thank you for looking.
