1959 Chevrolet Corvette C1 / J59S105766 Chassis Information

1959 Chevrolet Corvette C1
Convertible
Chassis Num: J59S105766
Sold for $88,000 at 2007 RM Sothebys.
This 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible was brought to the 2007 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by RM Auctions, where it had an estimated value of $60,000 - $80,000. It was offered without reserve. It is a matching numbers example that is in excellent condition. It has recently undergone a two-year restoration. Its engine is in excellent condition, displacing 283 cubic-inches and providing 270 horsepower thanks in part to the dual quad carburetors and solid lifter cams. It has won 13 trophies in 13 shows, and a recipient of a Gold Award in the Concours division at the North West Corvette & Hi-Performance meet in 1996.

The level of quality of the restoration, its potent powerplant and its Corvette nameplate were the strong factors in driving the selling price above the estimated value, to $88,000 including buyer's premium.
