Gorgeous '59 Corvette, Code CU 283/270hp, 4-Speed

Welcome to Street Dreams as we celebrate our 23rd year in the classic and muscle car business. The Chevrolet Corvette has had a remarkable 69-year run as America's premier sports car. Evolving through eight generations, the Corvette has continually raised the bar for expectations of performance, styling, and comfort. Perhaps the most important element introduced during the Corvette's evolution was the legendary 'small block' V8 introduced for 1955. By the time that this gorgeous Roman Red 1959 Corvette was built, the small block Chevy had been enlarged to 283 cubic inches and was well on its way to becoming the most successful production engine in history (over 100 million served!). Lift the hood and you'll be greeted by the stout 270 hp version with dual 4bbl carburetors and a solid lifter camshaft (BCN3756519, suffix CU). Additional features include the Borg-Warner 4-speed manual transmission, Positraction rear axle, Wonderbar AM radio, desirable auxiliary hardtop, and wide whitewall tires. This stunner drives beautifully and attracts more attention than Lady Godiva! These first generation Corvettes are magnificent machines that are almost as fun to admire as they are to drive. Just look at the compound curves on that deck lid. A thrilling piece of rolling artwork with a character and style that is not available in a modern automobile. One more winner from the team that can make your dream a reality. Street Dreams (830-997-1950) is a full service dealership that can assist with worldwide delivery, insurance, and financing options.
