To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Amelia Island event, 6 - 7 March 2020. Estimate:$90,000 - $110,000 Comprehensive frame-off restoration Factory two four-barrel carburetor; desirable four-speed transmissionIncludes owner’s manual, spare tire, and jackPrevious ownership for over five decadesRare functional WonderBar radio Nineteen fifty-six was a big year for the Corvette, as it heralded the model’s first major design revision since its inception three years earlier. The styling was reminiscent of the original, but it was modernized inside and out with new fenders, chrome-rimmed headlights, integrated taillights, and the now iconic side coves. GM engineers also added a handful of creature comforts, including wind-up windows, adjustable passenger seat, and external door handles—all welcome changes from the relatively spartan earlier models. Furthermore, customers could choose from a host of options and colors to personalize their new Corvette. More power was exactly what the doctor ordered, and it proved to be a massive hit with customers, finally making the Corvette the sports car Chevrolet dreamed it could be.This stunning Venetian Red Corvette, until recently, was owned by the same collector for over 50 years. The previous owner conducted a correct and highly detailed, frame-off restoration completed just five years ago. Options include the highly desirable 265-cubic-inch “Turbo-Fire Special” V-8 with two four-barrel carburetors and special high-lift camshaft producing 225 horsepower at 5,200 rpm. The engine is rated at 270 foot-pounds of torque at 3,600 rpm. An optional four-speed manual transmission complements the high-performance engine. Additionally, this Corvette is outfitted with a factory WonderBar radio that is in perfect working order. An owner’s manual, spare tire, and jack accompany the car, as well.Correctly restored and nicely optioned, this exceptional 1956 Corvette is ideal for club events, vintage rallies, touring, or exhibition and would be an exciting addition to any collection of American sports cars.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at - details above.
