The 1953-1955 Corvette design was meant to be the dream car/concept car for the General Motors Motorama. The design was so popular that Harley Earl called to have the car put into production almost immediately. By the end of 1953 the very first editions of the Corvette were rolling off the line. The 1954 Corvettes were basically identical to the 1953 Corvette except for the date on the title. Both of these years came in one and one only motor option. For those who don’t know the six cylinder Chevrolet Corvette engine that was used in both of these years is the same basic six cylinder engine that was designed before 1932. While it was highly dependable and super rugged it was also super slow. The 1955 Corvette came out with the 265 c.i. V8 that added a lot power but by today’s standards it was still super slow.
So today we find collectors who desire the almost identical appearance of the first edition Corvette but they want it with ‘GO Power” and some call this concept Retro Rods.
Now if the above information starts to ring a bell or resonate with you then you must take a look at this Corvette in this eBay auction. It is almost identical to the way it was manufactured in 1954 in terms of its looks and cosmetics but when it comes to power forget all about a six cylinder ‘no power’ engine this car is loaded with a V8 350 c.i. (330 HP) with a Muncie 4-speed transmission. Yes it will run with today’s Corvettes and many collectors will tell that you that they prefer the sculptured designs of the 1953-1955 Corvette over any other Corvette designed including the new Corvette designs.
The owner of this Corvette set his goals to make it a car that has all the “GO” power that anybody will need handling that is far superior to anything that you could conceive of with the early Corvette and comfort you would expect from a modern car.
