The owner of this 1958 Corvette had the typical dream to restore this C1 straight axle but never got around too it. And so it sat outside for several years in the North Georgia weather with only a tarp to protect it. The time had finally come to sell it and so the owner placed an ad for the Corvette on Craigslist early Christmas morning.
The copy of the craigslist ad read:
This is either a 57 or 58 corvette. I wanted to work on it as a project but don’t have the time or the know how. The body appears to be in good shape, obviously this will be a project to restore this vehicle. I do not have the title, not sure how to get it either. This would be a good car to restore or part out. Make an offer, I just need to get rid of it!!!! More pictures available upon request.
Scott Oliver of Jett Vettes Restoration shop got a call from an acquaintance on Christmas morning telling him about the Corvette he saw listed on Craigslist. Scott wasted no time and later that evening brokered a deal with the owner while snow flakes were falling on the uncovered Corvette.
Current plans are to restore the Signet Red Corvette and then offer the roadster for sale. Interested? Check out JettVetts.com for more info.
