59 Corvette

Went over to check out the SA Corvettes Club open day. This is my mates cousins car. Just finished . Iím not really a fan of these but this thing is ridiculous. Better than they ever would have left the factory it has been meticulously restored.

That looks like a very nicely done C1. I've always loved the details on those cars -- well, most cars of that age really. My favorite bits are the transparent emblems.

Wow, that's pretty awesome!

Did they ever make them in RHD?

Not sure there's ever been a RHD 'vette.

There are some companies doing RHD conversions for the Australian market. Everything from C1 through 6 has been converted, but the price is typically ridiculous. A conversion of a late model C4 is supposedly AUD25-30k. A RHD converted C6Z was AUD240k new.

Isn't there an age limit for a RHD requirement?

It varies by state. NSW, SA and QLD it has to be at least 30 years old, WA it's 15 years, but they have to meet some ADR standards - seatbelts, headlights and amber coloured indicator lamps mainly.

Pretty much any Corvette is a rare sight. You mainly see them at these type of shows. This guy wouldnít drive it normally. He also has a fully resorted Mustang but I havenít seen that.

Cars from that generation are indeed works of art. I can't imagine how they were able to manufacture such beauties with a very limited technology they have back then.
