This a beautiful 1956 Chevrolet Corvette finished in Venetian Red with a complementary Red interior. This car has the original 265ci motor with two four barrel carburetors and a period correct 2 speed automatic transmission. When the current owner acquired the car, it had been converted to a manual transmission. Looking for originality, the transmission was converted back to a period correct 2 speed automatic. The car has traveled 54,300 documented original miles (with some interesting paperwork) and has won numerous awards from NCRS including an 87 point Real Deal original car. The car was stored for close to 25 years and suffered damage on top of a front fender when a beam fell on it. That area was patched, repaired and painted at that time. The paint is mostly original and is very good condition. Time has added an attractive patina to the exterior finish; the interior is 100% original and also in excellent condition. The steering wheel, the gauges, seats, and door panels look fantastic as do the badges etc. Everything works as it is supposed to and the car comes with two tops. If I tell you how solid this car is you would doubt my word; if I tell you how the engine sounds and performs you would likely doubt it also. However, I rode in the car, I drove over railroad tracks, I felt the acceleration and noted the lack of rattles. If you are lucky enough to ride in this car, you will know exactly what I mean; and there will be no doubt.
This car is a survivor and is being offered at $73,500; this car will make its new owner proud to drive a true original piece of American history. If you need any assistance with financing please let me know.
