Dec 18, 2017

Category: Rides

The post-WWII era saw nationwide prosperity for the United States. Naturally, the automobile world enjoyed the same – resulting in General Motors testing some design previously unheard of. This, by default, included the 1959 Corvette XP-87 Stingray Racer which later provided inspiration for this Centurion built out by Fiberfab.

As a premier aftermarket builder at the time, Fiberfab built six examples of the Centurion – also known as the Corvette Custom Topless Roadster. Now, this freshly restored authentic Centurion is up for auction through Barrett-Jackson complete with a striking Inca Silver finish and headrest fairings on the rear deck. Under the hood is also a restored Rochester fuel-injected 283ci 8-cylinder engine and the ride also features the original Fiberfab body identification tag as well as the original chassis VIN tag for authentication purposes. A silver leather interior also alludes to mid-century luxury assuring this ’58 beauty is sure to fetch a pretty penny at the Scottsdale auction next month.
