Unique Golden Anniversary 1958 Corvette to Cross the Block at Mecum Indy

Of the many Corvettes that will be offered at Dana Mecum’s Indianapolis sale next week, this 1958 Corvette stands in a class all its own.

Two things were going on back in 1958 when this Corvette was made. First the redesigned 1958 Corvette wore more chrome than any another Corvette that came before and secondly, it was Chevrolet’s 50th Anniversary.

To commemorate Chevrolet’s Golden Anniversary, a 1958 Corvette roadster was pulled from the production line and painted a special one-of-one “Anniversary Gold”. That Corvette would be designated as Chevrolet’s 39,000,000 vehicle produced.
