1959 Chevrolet Corvette

fuel: gas
title status: clean
transmission: manual

This is a custom Pro Touring show car, built by "Burtons Kreative Motorwerks" of Dayton Ohio.

BODY: The Downs body is constructed of high quality fiberglass with steel reinforcement. The fit and finish is perfect with all body gaps very uniform and show quality two stage paint, finished in "Roman Red" with white coves. This particular body holds the distinction of being Downs Corvette body #0001 built to tour the country as an advertisement for Downs quality. The car is legally registered in California pursuant to Senate Bill 100.
INTERIOR: The bucket seats and other interior components are covered in high quality red Italian leather.
CHASSIS: The award winning "Art Morrison" Corvette G.T. chassis uses a high quality steel boxed tube frame with fully independent front suspension including tubular control arms, adjustable coil over shocks, disc brakes and power rack and pinion steering. The 9" Curie rear end uses Strange Brothers axles and incorporates triangulated 4 link suspension with adjustable coil over shocks and disc brakes.
ENGINE: the Bill Mitchel "Motown" 427" small block engine is not a modified General Motors block, but rather a completely custom built engine. The block and heads are cast with thicker metal and larger water passages to accommodate the larger cubic inch displacement, providing higher horsepower with increased dependability and longevity.
TRANSMISSION: Tremec TKO 5 speed over drive with a Hurst shifter and high torque dual disc clutch.
CREATURE COMFORTS: Power steering and brakes, Power windows and seats, tilt steering wheel, removable hard top, "Vintage" heat and air conditioning and AM/FM radio with CD player

In summary, this is a high quality custom built show car that incorporates performance , ride and handling characteristics that make it a pleasure to drive and a practical road car for the discriminating enthusiast. I will consider partial trades or possibly an even trade for the right vehicle (street rods and muscle cars only).
