When thinking about vintage Corvettes, everyone has an opinion on what the ultimate year is. Some are obvious, some maybe more obscure. No answer is really incorrect. It’s what Corvette makes your heart beat just a bit faster upon seeing it. But, among the more obvious choices, it’s a pretty safe bet that the ’58 would make most top ten lists. This was the third design change for Corvette and it was a major one! The car was longer and (thankfully) wider, which made it much easier to get in and out of! It also grew two more headlights. But, what really sets the ’58 apart from all the other years was the “Gingerbread”. The ‘50’s were the decade of excess when it came to car design. The “Jet Age” was in full swing and the cars of the era reflect that in a big way! And Corvette was not immune to it. The ‘58’s had a simulated louvered hood and two big chrome spears running up the trunk lid. It fit the time well, but the next year Chevrolet realized the old adage of “too much of a good thing” and they were removed for ’59. That created a one year only design that has only grown in popularity over the years and as a result, the ’58 is recognized as one of the most desirable and collectable Corvettes ever built!
It has been in the family for a long time. It is sad to see it go good luck bidding.
