1958 Chevrolet Corvettes For Sale
1958 Chevrolet Corvette – The Corvette built in the late Fifties and early to mid Sixties could be considered its Classic Era. They were the years of a vast transition from Harley Earl’s styling to Bill Mitchell’s. From second generation two seater to the Sting Ray. From the small block 265 and 283 V-8 engines to the Chevy’s big blocks. These were the most exiting years for the Corvette.
The 1958 Corvette didn’t indicate this new look and was considered just a face lift. It was not very sucessful and still under the influence of Harley Earl. The 58 Corvette was basically clean and rounded but the smooth lines from the 1956 and 1957 Corvettes were still there.
Changes included simulated hood louvers, dummy air scoop on either side of the grille, redesigned side coves and twin chrome bars running down the trunk lid. Like the 1958 Chevrolet the 1958 Corvette had quad headlights surrounded by a chrome bezel and chrome strip on top of the fenders. The grille had nine teeth instead of 13 found on the 1957 Corvette.
The 58 Corvette had a new bumper that was much safer for the car and passengers. Instead of being attached to the body it was attached to the frame. Another exterior change was from enamel to acrylic lacquer paint. The base price of a 1958 Corvette was $3631.00.
The interior was instrument panel layout was heavily revised. All dials were placed right in front of the driver except the clock. They included a 160 mile per hour speedometer, 6000 RPM tachometer and the customary gauges. Other features included pebble gran upholstery fabric, a vertical console, heater controls, Wonder Bar radio, grab bar and a locking glove box.
