1954 Chevrolet Corvette
1954 Chevrolet Corvette, this is one of the 100 Sportsman Red cars built, it has been in the same ownership since 1999 when the car was gifted from father to son, the car was in the fathers ownership for some years prior to passing it down. Showing only 27000 miles on the odometer, 97068 Is the center gauge reading.Are the miles correct?In 1999 the car had 21000 but being that the car is so old the mileage cannot be verified, I can tell you that is a very nice driving 54 corvette, I have driven five of these examples and this one drives very well, probably the best of the group, It recently made a 400 Mile trip up the coast of California and performed excellent, there are new radial tires on the car that make biggest differences if you are going to use the car for any trips, the exhaust system is new, the suspension feels good and the brakes have been serviced and work well, and new brake lines were also added. The motor runs smooth with no strange noises, smoking out of the exhaust, it has good power and the transmission shifts nice and does kick down into the lower gear when depressed, carbs were all synced correctly, Alignment is good it was done when the new radial tires were installed prior to the road trip a few months ago. This 54 was the 1899 off the line in 1954 The Vin of the car is E54S002900Motor number 06696531 the motor compartment is honest and has not been painted, hoses, belts, plugs and wires are all good. There are no cooling issues. A well sorted driving car. Colorado replacement VIN sticker in door. Clean California title in hand, currently registered and insured w haggerty for $90,000.00
The exterior of the car is very nice, not NCRS show nice but very nice driver quality, the paint is deep and shiny, Reelections are mirror like, it has been repainted years ago to its original color, there are a few cracks in the paint that I will show in the photos, the hood has some chips around the front, also in the photos, Grill is very nice The windshield is new and is a date correct one, the original one was showing some age near the corners so it was replaced, the car has a tan top believed to be original and its original side curtains that are stored in the original bag in the trunk. The chrome and bright work is very good and complete.
Interior is original, there is a tear in the driver seat seam, carpets, door panels, trunk are all very presentable, dash has no spider cracking, radio is in op. Gauges work and are not sun faded, this is a car that was stored inside, under a cover and not sitting in field or yard for years, all signals, lights, horn are in working order, steering wheel has no cracks. Over 100 photos of the car.
