The Corvette C1 needs no introduction as it is undoubtedly America’s most iconic sports car of the 1950’s. This stunning, beautifully presented example was subject of a comprehensive restoration in the USA prior to arriving in the UK in 2016. The car was purchased in Los Angeles and shipped to the UK, registered in the UK on the 1St September 2016. The car is finished in the beautiful combination of Silver Blue over Cream, with Cream upholstery and body coloured hard top.
The Corvette has spent the past three years in Cheshire and has had in the region of £6,000 spent on upkeep and maintenance. The C1 has been treated to brand new tyres, the steering rack has been removed and rebuilt and the car has been regularly serviced and maintained. The car has attended several shows and events in the Cheshire area and has proven an absolute delight to own performing faultlessly and proving totally reliable.
229 UYT is very impressive on the road, the 265ci V8 engine is outstanding with superb power and performance, the three-speed manual gearbox is faultless, and the Corvette handles and stops correctly. All electrics are in excellent order, the underside of the car is structurally superb, and the body presents beautifully with a lovely standard of paintwork and chrome. Both hard top and soft top are in very good order and the interior finely presented. This is a fabulous example in one of the most attractive colour combinations, and since restoration it has nicely been run in, further fettled and is ready to drive and enjoy.
