For Sale: 1954 Chevrolet Corvette in Atlanta, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this stunning 1954 Chevrolet Corvette. When Chevrolet debuted the Corvette in 1953 they likely never expected it to continue production over eight generations and more than 60 years - but it has become "America's Sportscar" and this C1 is the car that started it all.

This example was purchased by our client out of the famed Darryl Starbird collection in Afton, Oklahoma. It had been part of the collection since 1994 and received an exacting, frame-off restoration during Starbird's ownership. With only 500 miles since restoration, this 'Vette looks as good or better than when it left the factory; it took first place honors at the 32nd annual spring meet of the Sunshine Corvette Club in Miami in 2018.

Finished in Polo White over red interior with a tan canvas top and correct side curtains along with a full tonneau, paint, body, trim and glass all present beautifully. The correct (code F54YG) 235 cubic inch inline six breaths through triple Carter sidedraft carburetors and transmits power through the only available transmission - a two-speed Powerglide. Firestone whitewall bias ply tires are mounted on factory wheels.

While later iterations or the C1 Corvette may be faster and easier to drive, this early pure design is a must have for any serious collector - and with fewer than 4,000 '53-54 models produced, you are not likely to see another one at the show. A binder of restoration photos and the Corvette service guide accompany the sale.
