In the early 1950s, designer Harley Earl convinced executives at
General Motors that they needed to produce a mid-priced sports car
to compete with Eurpoean comeptitors such as MG, Jaguar and Alfa
Romeo. GM got to work and in 1953 unveiled the first Corvette
prototype, known as the EX-122, at General Motors Motorama in New
York City. The car received a tremendous response and went into
production mid-year. In 1954, the second model year of the
Corvette, the car was available in four colors, almost all built
with red interiors. With a six-cylinder motor and a Powerglide
automatic transmission, all 1954 Corvettes were believed to be
equipped the same as it is believed that all options were made
mandatory across all Corvettes built during the 1954 model
This 1954 Corvette is a stunning representation of a well restored
and maintained piece of history. The Sportsman Red exterior carries
through the the red interior, both in tremendous condition. The
Blue Flame 6-cylinder motor fires right up and the automatic
transmission makes is easy and enjoyable to drive. From the
gleaming brightwork on the car's exterior to the pristine engine
compartment and impressive interior, this Corvette does not
disappoint. If you are seeking a true piece of American sports car
history, look no further.
