Corvette Of The Day: 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Convertible
This 1959 Corvette Custom has undergone an extensive high-end build. The original 1959 Corvette body now features specially blended Mint Blue Pearl with white coves, expertly fitted onto an SRIII custom tube chassis. This chassis includes a custom exhaust, C7 Corvette front and rear suspension, and a Currie rear end. The 6.2L LS3 V-8 engine sits in a finished engine compartment that has been designed to match the body color.
Custom C1Classic wheels by EVOD emulate the appearance of the original hubcaps while providing ample clearance for the substantial brakes tucked inside. Adorned with low-profile Diamondback whitewall tires, the lowered chassis and larger wheels create a visually striking effect.
The interior has been custom designed and color-matched to complement the exterior. Passengers will appreciate the plush carpeting and mats, expertly upholstered seats and door panels, a custom steering wheel, center console complete with cup holders, and a modern stereo unit with a classic aesthetic. This attention to detail extends to the trunk, underscoring the thoroughness of the restoration work.
