The '58 I had when I got my licence at 16, I sold it in 1966 to buy a new GTOWOW!!! To be so lucky to own two super nice corvettes. I'd have to flip a coin everyday to figure which one I was driving to work.
O' I see, still a lucky man to own it at one time.The '58 I had when I got my licence at 16, I sold it in 1966 to buy a new GTO
It was the base 230 HP 283 with a Powerglide and 3:55 rear end.regguy1, great looking Vettes. Do you recall what the 58 had in it, eng, trans, etc.
I had a 1966 Coupe 327 300HP /4 Speed / Factory Air / did a body on restoration. Took it on a cross country vacation to California.Nice! Love these cars. My first Corvette I think I was 18 was a '66 coupe 327/300hp. I really miss this car.
No, sold it in March 1966 when I ordered a new GTOVery nice! Do you still own the 59?
The '58 was used, the guy wanted $1300.00 for it. I had about $300.00 saved up so my father ended up trading his 1960 VW Beetle for it.regguy1, I am absolutely turning green with envy. I recall as a young boy going to the local Chevrolet dealership with my Dad, just to look at the new cars and sitting in the new Corvette for what seemed like hours, just dreaming of one day owning one. I totally loved the '57 through '60's but was never able to afford one. They seemed sooo out of my reach. Never missed an episode of "Route 66" just to dream more of owning a Corvette. I would have given practically anything to have had a first car like yours. Didn't buy my first Corvette until a '76 L82 four-speed car in 1980. I've had some pretty cool cars in between, but I haven't had another Corvette until this next one, which will be a 2015 Z06. 100% sure the deal is going to happen, but then the world could end I suppose... You've been very fortunate to have the cars you have had and still have. Isn't life great!
