Corvette Story Webmaster(California, US)says...

About 8% of the 1959 Corvettes had no heater (otherwise known as "Heater Delete"), is it is a bit rare, but not very rare. You should see a boost in the value when it is sold, but not a lot. I would say 5% or so.

I remember back in 1972,I had a 59 vette with no heater,I see that by this chart it was an option.I wonder how much this affects the value today?
