Vehicle Description

Here’s a spectacular C1, a 1959 Chevrolet Corvette now available in the MaxMotive Pittsburgh Showroom. One of the big reasons this vintage is so sought after is the 283ci V8 engine. This one is believed to be the original engine and it sports the correct Carter 4-bbl carburetor, new air cleaner and finned aluminum valve covers. A frame-on body restoration was performed by Corvette specialists Mickey’s Car Barn 5 years ago, and the results are fabulous. The paint is the original color Roman Red with contrasting white coves. The car is amazingly original, including the hardtop, interior (with new carpet), windshield, plexiglass, and much of the chrome and stainless trim. And there are plenty of new components to keep it running smoothly and looking great. It’s been treated to a new black soft top, new stainless steel exhaust, new carpeting, and new Firestone Deluxe Champion whitewall tires. This is an extra-rare example as only 20% of the 9670 1959 Corvettes were equipped with the Powerglide automatic transmission. It comes with a 1959 Corvette Operations Manual, the original valve covers, and the original air cleaner. You’ll be proud to drive or show this rare Roman Red 1959 Chevrolet Corvette. Please see the detailed photos at www.maxmotive.com.

*MAXmotive specializes in collectible classic and custom vehicles. We have more than 200 vehicles in our collection and have sold dozens nationwide and even overseas. We recommend that all buyers who are unable to view a vehicle in person have a pre-purchase inspection done prior to purchase. Inspections can be performed by an independent party selected by the buyer. Due to the age and uniqueness of these special vehicles, it is difficult to cover all aspects and characteristics of each vehicle’s condition within the limited space available. Thus, pre-purchase inspections are helpful to all parties involved. The information provided for this vehicle is presented to the best of our knowledge, and is deemed reliable. But MAXmotive does not warrant or guarantee this information as a basis for purchase. It is the responsibility of the buyer to make a thorough inspection to determine the suitability of the vehicle prior to purchase.
