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

It would probably be easier to tell you what HAS NOT been restored or replaced (pretty much everything has) on this sweet 1959 Chevrolet Corvette than to go through the entire list of service items. Restored to be shown or driven, its been comprehensively serviced and overhauled to make it not only beautiful, but reliable and fun to drive as well. For a lot of guys, the 1959 Corvette is the one to own. Four headlights up front but with the curvaceous rear end that ties it to the very first Corvette in 54. Painted traditional Roman Red with Snowcrest White side coves, this is the archetypal C1 and it looks like a million bucks. The restoration was completed to a high level, and you may have noticed that weve selected it as one of our Featured cars, so that tells you something about the quality of the work. Crisp detailing, great panel alignment, and a lot of care in the fiberglass prep are all obvious in the high-quality finish. Those side coves dont allow for much slop in the assembly process, and one slam of the doors will convince you that whatever it cost to get it to this level, it was totally worth it. An equally big chunk of cash probably went into the chrome work, because the grille and bumpers are excellent, the stainless sparkles, and the windshield frame looks fantastic. Glancing even closer, you will see that things like the weather-stripping, lenses, bulb housings, headlights, and emblems are in great shape too, so theres nothing left for you to do but enjoy it. The matching red interior is all new as well and looks fantastic in the iconic little roadster. A little more unusual but no less classic than the more common black interior, it has a vivid edge thats quite appealing in an early Corvette. Theres firm yet supple foam under the clean seat covers and there are plush carpets with padding underneath so it remains quiet and cool in the passenger compartment. The gauges are in beautiful condition and are fully operational, which says a lot about this cars quality, and the steering wheel looks awesome in red as well. The list of new stuff is rather extensive here, too, and the car came from the factory with an AM radio and a heater/defroster unit, both of which were technically optional (though almost everyone bought both). A cue ball knob on the 4-speed shifter is a period performance look, and for cruising on those cool evenings, youll really appreciate the invention of the heater core. Overhead theres a bright white convertible top with tight weather seals, so no worries should the weather turn against you. The 283 cubic inch V8 engine is the cars original powerplant, and it is rebuilt and ready to rumble. Bored .030 over to 287 cubic inches and upgraded with a balanced rotating assembly and small cam, this little small block is now more powerful than ever. Dual factory Carter carbs snap the engine attention, making this early Vette ready to brawl at the flick of a key. Finned valve covers are beautifully refinished with a soft silver shine and the generator was kept for the sake accuracy and originality. The shrouded ignition system lights the fires almost instantly and the exhaust manifolds are super clean and linked to an all-new reproduction dual exhaust system. Theres a new fuel pump, new radiator, new belts, new hoses, new shocks, new tie rods, new brake lines, and, well, you get the point. It rides on stock wheels with original hubcaps with new spinners, and the 6.70-15 whitewall tires give it the look that everyone will envy. A great find with a vast amount of restoration work, all adding up to a car thats ready to enjoy, or ready to show. And isnt a worry-free lifestyle what Corvettes are all about? Call today!
