1958 CHEVROLET CORVETTE FUEL INJECTED ROADSTER BLACK EXTERIOR


Description


Unsurpassed body panel fit, gaps and finish
Stunning color combination of black exterior over red
One year only, 1958 elements; hood, interior and trunk
Black exterior, black coves and black wall tires
Frame off restoration by marque specialists
The most desirable solid axle ‘Vette with Fuel Injection
. Finished in Tuxedo Black with matching coves over a red interior, this car exhibits an exquisite high-quality restoration with a very critical eye for detail inside and out. From front to back, all panel gaps are fitted in far superior fashion compared to when the car left the assembly line. The finish is unmarked as are all chrome and brightwork items; absolutely no die-cast or stamped steel detail was overlooked during the reassembly. Inside, the interior is correct in all aspects down to the accessory tachometer, radio, clock and heater and no cosmetic issues remain post-restoration. The undercarriage and engine compartment are as stunning as the bodywork; the entirety of the engine bay remains carefully detailed to Concours specifications down to Rochester mechanical fuel injection and signature Corvette finned valve covers. The actual horsepower figure was under-rated by Chevrolet’s advertising agency for the 283ci/283hp, one horsepower per square inch slogan, making it one of the first mass-produced engines in history to reach that figure. Fuel injection would continue in the early Corvette as well as high-output engines fitted with single and dual-quad 4-barrel carburetion. Subject only to a minor facelift throughout the rest of the C1 run
