For Sale: 1954 Chevrolet Corvette in West Okoboji, Iowa

Vehicle Description

This vehicle and its history deserve your close attention. It is a first generation 1954 Chevrolet Corvette 'survivor'. One of only 3640 Corvettes built on the second year of production. This Vette survivor has been owned and maintained in the same family since new, passed down from the sister who had purchased the car, to the younger brother. The same brother that had advised and recommended that she buy a Corvette back in 1954. A car that has taken her husband, a doctor, on house calls in its early days, taken the lady of the house on shopping trips and ushered the Colorado couple on exciting weekend and cross-country getaways. This sweet roadster would have so many stories to tell if it could only talk. After the brother took possession of the car in 2014, all necessary maintenance was professionally performed with original replacement GM parts whenever available, or the original parts were rebuilt. He then embarked on a tour of car shows throughout the Midwest. Driving the car to the shows gave testament to the mechanical soundness and functionality of the car. Some 80 shows later he had collected an impressive display of trophies and plaques for his efforts. We received 55 awards with the vehicle. The car retains its character markings collected over its lifetime, some attributed to General Motors and one in particular to a neighbor kid's bicycle, all proof of its survivor status. We hesitantly offer this rare and beautiful car for sale. We will consider offers at or above our expectation. Prospective buyers must appreciate that the inherent value of a car of this rarity demands it be kept in its original state as much as possible to show the artistry of the early days of this icon of American built sports cars. This is not a car for tire kickers, this car is for the discriminating collector and investor. If you need to ask someone for permission to spend the money, do so in advance. This is a serious car for the collector with sufficient means. For details not apparent in the attached pictures, call or email Grant Duhn at the contact information listed.
