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

The 1954 Chevrolet Corvette is for a collector thats also a driver. After all, this example is nearly identical to the first-year cars (including the color theme) but this first full year of production made for a better Corvette. And this one is coming off of an impressive 55+ years under the same ownership. So dig into the details on a rare legend that appears clean, complete, and truly vintage. Finished in Polo White with a red interior, this one keeps the same color theme offered on all 1953 Corvettes. So it already has the appeal of the Corvettes genesis moment. Plus, the backstory is impressive: a husband and wife first bought this car in 1966, and it hasnt left their possession. It was given good care over the years, including a professional restoration in 2012. So this level of respect and investment is how you get a car that looks so impressively classic. The body and finish are well done with a look thats often better than stock... but not too perfect because that would be straying too far from how the factory did it in the early days. And youll love all the classic details. The toothy grille has a nice shine, the wraparound trim hugs the body, the dual exhaust tips are routed through the rear, and the stone guards are in place over the headlights. Even the hubcaps are a thoughtful design with the turbine slots painted red to match the wheels. And while we said this has the right color theme for a 1953 car, the tan roof is a feature they never got. The Corvette was the American interpretation of the best that came from Europe, and the interior is a great reminder of this heritage. The red bucket seats look like they could almost have come from a Jaguar XK. But the body-colored waterfall in-between that gives it a seamless interior/exterior appearance is pure American style. This also did a fantastic job of hiding the manual convertible top. The dual hump dash is a Corvette hallmark, and you see the infancy of it here. Auxiliary gauges were arrayed in the center of the dash, adding to the pleasing symmetry of the design. Youll even notice classic items like the AM radio (for display), working heater, and working interior lights. It all feels quite nice thanks to the later restoration. And because this comes with everything from proper side curtains to a spacious trunk, you can genuinely enjoy this classic for special road trips. Under the hood is the correct-style 235 cubic-inch Blue Flame inline-six. This is actually a replacement motor that was installed in 1966 - when the couple first bought the car. So its a nice catalyst to tell this Corvettes unique history. The Powerglide transmission was rebuilt at this time, too. This car was desirable because of the upgrade to a triple set of side-draft carburetors, and this correct setup continues to showcase it quite nicely today. We like the inline-six cars because it showcases the initial aim of the Corvette. It was built to be part of the sprightly European crowd, and thats why Chevrolet developed the lightweight fiberglass body. The total package gives these early C1s a different feeling on the road than all the rest of the Corvettes. And as you look underneath, the ultra-clean style gives you the confidence to go out and actually experience what it was like to be part of the Corvettes origins. A car this special comes with nice paperwork like the owners manual, title documentation, build receipts, and maintenance records. This long-term loved 54 is waiting for its next generational owner, but it wont wait for long. If youre a true enthusiast, you need to call today!
