Between 2000-2005, Man who bought the car, drove the corvette to work regularly in sunny weather and even showed it in a few local car shows (Morgan Hill Art & Wine Festival). However, since 2005, aside from quick drives around the block and occasional visits to Max for check-ups, it has been parked safely in my garage.

NEED TO KNOW INFO
“The high performance fuel injected engine, which is the one our feature car came with, has stout 11:1 compression, solid lifters, and a relatively aggressive camshaft profile. Together these performance enhancements boost output to 290 horsepower. The higher horse power Fuelie Engine was more popular than its mild mannered counterpart but only 745 sold it was by no means common. As with the 4-Speed Manual Transmission only 685 were sold – An optional four-speed, close ratio, syncromesh manual transmission.
This option included a “T” handle with positve reverse lockout – an option featured for the first time on the 1959 Corvette.
With the smooth hood and unadorned trunk, another distinguishing characteristic 1959 was the wheel cover design. It is similar to the 1958’s but incorporates ten small, rectangular cutouts around the periphery to aid brake cooling (NOW CURRENT with disk breaks)
The 1959 was addressed with the addition of an open tray beneath the passenger side grab bar. Since then the car has been shown on occasion, winning numerous first place and NCRS Top Flight awards”
