The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!

Classic Car Overview

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1954 Chevrolet Corvette for purchase. Its quite provoking to think about the timing of the birth of the Corvette. Every American produced vehicle was getting bigger throughout the mid-50s with tons of heavy sheet metal, chrome, and most often large fins. The idea that GM went the other way with their small, fiberglass concept car at the 1953 Autorama created a huge buzz. The rush to production meant that all production in 1953 was hand made in the last months of the year in an old truck factory in Flint while the production facility in St Louis was being prepared. The engine was the same 235 CID inline six that powered all other Chevrolet models, but with a higher-compression ratio, three Carter side-draft carburetors, and a more aggressive cam. Dubbed the Blue Flame , output was 150 horsepower. Because there was currently no manual transmission available to Chevrolet rated to handle 150 HP, a two-speed Powerglide automatic was used. While the Corvette had no shortage of attention, sales lagged and it took a few years for Corvettes to really fly off the shelves. The first few years low production numbers make early Corvettes incredibly rare and important pieces of automotive history. Please call or email us today for more information. Drive this one out of our showroom or have us assist with shipping it to you anywhere in the United States!



The C1 offered here is a survivor. It was in a museum for the last 20 years. The car was acquired by its current owner from the museum and brought to GR Auto Gallery to return to the wild. The interior and convertible top have been replaced but everything appears to be original. The 235 "Blue Flame Six" and running gear seems to be in good running condition. The car is finished in its signature original Polo White over red interior. Highlights include: Polo White exterior paint, red and white interior, correct spinner hubcaps with wide white wall tires, am radio, original gauges, tri carb set up, original washer bottle, original static shield etc. Documentation includes a large story board that shows pics and titles dating back to the original purchase.



Price does not include applicable tax, title, license, processing and/or $199 documentation fees.
