There’s no real shortage of nicely restored, correct 1958 Corvettes around, and even the fans will admit that the driving experience is pretty primitive. And it was with that in mind that this beautiful roadster was conceived and built.
At first glance, it’s pure Corvette, complete with Roman Red paint and beautiful white side coves.
Not a single exterior piece was modified and the fiberglass body was expertly restored, so if you like the look this car delivers in a big way.
The unique 1958 features, including the louvered hood and twin chrome strips along the trunk lid, are still in place and thanks to modern paint technology, the shine is deep and rich and should stay that way for years to come if you take care of it.
All the chrome and stainless trim, and there’s a lot of it on the 1958 Corvettes, was also restored and glitters in a way that only 1950s cars seem to manage. It’s obvious that no corners were cut during this build.

There are quite a few modifications to the interior, but it’s quite obvious that they were all done with an honest attempt to keep it looking as stock as possible.
Under the surface, there’s a ton of sound-deadening materials so it’s quiet and cool inside this ‘Vette’s cockpit, something that can’t always be said of original cars.
This one was factory equipped with power windows, so those are still in place, and the factory 3-spoke steering wheel now lives atop a tilt steering column which was painted to match the body so it blends in. The Classic Air A/C system was discreetly installed under the dash and has a period look and even the original PowerGlide shifter was retained, although it’s now linked to twice as many gears.

The original gauges were rebuilt and yes, that’s a Wonderbar radio in the dash, although all the guts are new and it includes an iPod interface and speakers in the kick panels. Those are leather seat covers that feel luxurious, the carpets are new, the top is new, the weather-stripping is new, and the trunk is outfitted with a correct red rubber mat.
