Many car collectors are noted to seek the rare and unusual in order to stand out from the rest. Accordingly, this Corvette is worthy of inspection, as it is finished in the least common of the seven colors offered for 1964: Saddle Tan. With a matching saddle leather interior, this two-top car is indeed a rare find. Inspection shows that a restoration was performed many years ago; however, the Corvette has been thoroughly enjoyed and driven since. It is accessorized by a teak wood wheel and AM/FM radio. The paint, stainless, and chrome are all indicative of a car that has enjoyed many years on the road. Nevertheless, one cannot help but be drawn to this rare example that will offer its next owner a great opportunity for restoration and further enjoyment.
