1959 Chevrolet Corvette (the vette)

No longer owned


The car is a 1959 Corvette roadster. I purchased this car in the mid 80's as a almost completed project from a fellow in Waterdown. This was a non numbers car and painted a beautiful red with white coves and non original leather interior. It was a great driver with a 350 HP 327 engine and a 4 speed. After I had finished with it the car was just too nice for me to own, they have to be usable to survive with me. The frame had been repaired as I found out after and I started a legal proceeding with the seller as he misrepresented the cars condition. I won but lost interest in the car.

This car is now less than a few blocks from me and in absolutely awful condition.


283 4 speed

Factory Options

not factory but I put leather seats coverings on it
