1958 Corvette Won't Start
(North Kingstown. R.I.)
I recently had a 1958 Corvette delivered from Florida. I live in New England and the vehicle was trucked from Florida. The driver seem to start the vette no problem. I drove the car to my home from the pickup point (less than a quarter mile). The car stalled on me when I pulled into my driveway (my fault I was getting used to finding the 1st gear). However, when I tried to restart it - nothing. No power at all - no lights, horn, no ignition sound or engine turning. The battery is good. I had it checked. I also tried to jump start it and nothing. I checked the fuse box, and the fuses are all intact.
Any idea what's wrong?
Could this be a problem with the ignition, coil, alternator, or starter and how can I check these?
