1959 Chevrolet Corvette


This 1959 Corvette has had but a few owners in it's lifetime, with the current owner being the caretaker of it for the last 49 years!  The car underwent a complete, professional frame off, rotisserie restoration in 2005 and is a very fine representation of one of the most widely recognized and appreciated collector cars on the market today.

The car may very well be a one of one given that it appears to have been special ordered from the factory in an Ivory Coast White, which was a color available to the Chevrolet line of cars.  While the common "white" color on a Corvette was "Classic Cream", it was discovered during the restoration on the car that the color written on the trunk partition stated "Ivory".  The color was matched and the car remains the correct and original factory presentation.  

The Corvette comes with both a soft-top and the removable hard-top and the mechanics and road-worthiness are very good.  This is a must have Corvette sure to please the eyes and provide classic motoring pleasure long into the future.
