This 1959 Chevrolet Corvette is hand-built and assembled by Smokey Albert Yunick in Palm Coast, FL, founder of Yunique Creations and son of Henry "Smokey" Yunick who was one of the greatest automotive engineering minds the world has ever known. Mr Yunick used 140 custom fiberglass molds from an original 1959 Corvette. All components of this vehicle, aside from the stereo equipment, are from late-production C4 (1994-1996) Corvettes or custom manufactured by Yunique Creations. The vehicle was built on a 2x4 custom tube chassis, upon which remanufactured C4 Corvette suspension and drive train have been installed. This car features a rebuilt Corvette LT-1 5.7L engine, incorporating the complete C4 GM/Delco wiring harness and engine management system, and consistently producing over 31 miles per gallon. It also has a TH700R4 automatic transmission with overdrive and a 2.59:1. J positraction rear-end. Safety features on this vehicle include a collapsing tilt steering column, 3-point seat belts, 4-wheel disc brakes, and a modern fuel cell/gas tank. Another key safety feature is the modern 16-inch all-season performance tires with a custom hubcap assembly maintaining the look of the original 1959 wheels. Comfort items on this vehicle include a customized Yunique Creations air conditioning system capable of maintaining comfort at up to 110 degrees Fahrenheit. A significant comfort attribute of this vehicle is that the seats have been lowered 4 inches and set back 7 inches from the original 1959 design. The vehicle also features a C4 Corvette digital dashboard, power windows and locks, modern AM/FM stereo equipment and CD player, as well as hand-tooled leather seats with the Yunique logo. This is the first production model available for purchase. Yunique Creations will take orders for a customized model of this vehicle built to your personal specifications and this process takes a minimum of five months
