Meticulous frame off restored 1954 Chevrolet Corvette convertible finished in stunning Jet Black with highly desirable dark red interior and tan convertible top. The original high compression Blue Flame 150, 6 cylinder engine with 3 side draft carburetors runs flawlessly and is highly detailed for any show at any level. The Power glide automatic transmission shifts easily and makes this car very enjoyable to drive. This special ground breaking Corvette is numbers matching throughout and was painstakingly restored to very high standards so that it could be shown locally, NCRS or Bloomington. Enjoyed greatly but driven sparingly, since the restoration this Corvette has been pampered and kept in a climate controlled environment for a fresh appearance.
