An incredible opportunity for an astute purchaser who appreciates and understands the true desirable value of an original unmolested classic first generation Corvette with fantastic provenance...

This magnificent C-1 which marks the end of this iconic shape has to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.

Coming out of a private collection of multimillion dollar handpicked exotic vehicles in the US, this Corvette held its own among some very serious company, and was a favourite for its doting owner before his passing with the car subsequently being willed to a family member who is now the one and only NZ owner, with the car originally arriving here to our shores in 2015, and now showing just over 56,000 miles recorded today.

A documented original numbers matching 300 hp 327 High Perf 4 speed manual transmission car, this survivor still has its correct engine (matching numbers casting and suffix numbers correct partial vin etc) and retains its original and desirable hardware and fittings, either still fitted or with some boxed in the trunk if replaced for maintenance.

The body is in remarkable condition with all original bonding strips present and correct, and in the right light still just visible as they should be, and generally displaying what appears to be a very good original no hit very tight solid body, while older but simply beautiful period correct finish paintwork presents exceptionally well too.
The interior is also very original and tells the true story of the car and the cherished existence it has clearly enjoyed over the decades, with near perfect chrome and fittings throughout the entire car externally and internally, which is very refreshing and it would appear nothing has every really been disturbed or messed about with, a quality obviously very hard to find today.

An interesting back story and extensive manuals and paperwork complement this complete survivor as well as documented proof of previous entry and judgement at NCRS level retained, along with quite an extensive inventory of trinkets and spares in the trunk.

A truly lovely original old car that has clearly enjoyed a very good life, even the original period T3 headlamps are still fitted, with the outer units which were replaced for NZ compliance, still in old boxes in the trunk!

You would go a long way to find a better genuine example of one of these cars anywhere today... quite simply one of the nicest and most honest C-1 Corvettes we have ever seen, or had the pleasure of bringing to the market.

Inspection will impress, this example really is testament to the fact that they are only original once, and how lovely that fact is can clearly be seen in this neat old example.
