AutoHunter Spotlight: 1958 Chevrolet Corvette 283/270 4-speed

Professionally restored C1 that’s one of just 978 produced


Today’s AutoHunter Spotlight is on a 1958 Chevrolet Corvette that’s powered by a numbers-matching 270 horsepower 283cid small-block V8. This Corvette one of 978 produced for its year.

For a walk-around look at this Corvette, watch the video below:

This C1-generation Corvette received a frame-off restoration in the 1980s, which was given a score of 97 by the National Corvette Restorers Society. More recently, the two-tone Snowcrest White and Inca Silver body was resprayed and the color-matched hardtop was restored.

The body features a faux-louvered hood that was exclusive to the 1958 model year.

The interior is finished in Blue-Grey upholstery with matching door panels, carpeting and dash that houses an optional signal-seeking Delco Wonderbar radio.

The auction for this C1 Corvette ends May 21 at 11:40 a.m. PDT.
