This Corvette is a three-owner, California car that underwent a complete frame-off restoration by Corvette Correction of Anaheim, California. The car is finished in Ice Blue paint. A 283-c.i., overhead-valve, V-8 engine, fueled by a 4-barrel Carter carburetor, producing 230 hp at 4,800 rpm, powers the car. The factory price for the 1958 Corvette was $3,621. Chevrolet produced 9,168 Corvettes in 1958. Corvette styling was jazzed up for 1958. There were now four chrome-rimmed headlights with fender- length chrome stripes running between each air of lights. In addition, fake louvers were placed on the hood. This Corvette has been a consistent winner at local car shows.
