The 1958 model year was one of unbridled opulence within Detroit, as, for most all makes and models, the decade’s extravagance reached its chrome-slathered zenith. This was especially true at General Motors, which saw the production of such grandly trimmed machines as the Buick Limited and the original Chevrolet Impala. Chevrolet’s sports car, the Corvette, was not exempt and was dressier than ever this season. It adopted the newly in-vogue quad headlights and featured a larger grille, also following an industry-wide trend. Most distinctive were the designs of the hood and rear deck, which featured stamped-in faux cooling louvers and a pair of decorative chrome spears or “tusks,” respectively. 

Distinctively American in its design but nonetheless remaining a true, proud sports car, it was a beautiful automobile, and while the louvers and “tusks” would be one-year-only features, this same basic design was employed through the final season of “C1” production in 1962.

This car is part of the George Foreman Collection, which comprises over 50 cars from the 1930s through today, with a focus on American classics and late-model sports cars.

Known Imperfections

  • Please note that the vehicles in The George Foreman Collection have been in long-term static storage and will benefit from additional mechanical attention prior to being driven. Bidders are encouraged to review the Additional Documents section of each lot for any recent mechanical service rendered to help return certain vehicles to running condition. Additionally, bidders should carefully review the photos of each lot in the collection, which may highlight the oxidation of metal components certain vehicles sustained as the result of a garage fire caused by a golf cart battery in March 2019. Although none of the vehicles sustained fire damage from the fire itself, the negative cosmetic effects of the corrosive soot vary greatly from vehicle to vehicle and can be observed in the photo galleries of each lot. All lots are sold as is, where is, and bidders are responsible for any desired diligence before placing a bid.

  • A blemish on driver’s exterior rearview mirror 

  • Paint chip near fuel door

  • Broken door handle ball

  • Oxidation on windshield frame
