FROM THE OKOBOJI MUSEUM COLLECTION: Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale January 19th - 22nd, 2017 at Russo and Steele's 17th Annual Scottsdale Arizona Auction at the Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. Please contact us for more information. 1953 Corvette Replica This vehicle is a near perfect replica that includes actual Corvette instrumentation, pedal assembly, interior pieces and shifter assembly. While the rear frame and the body are built by the reproduction company Classic Sports Cars, the front frame section and engine are originally Chevrolet Camaro components. The vehicle is built to exacting specifications and is designed as closely to the original 53 Corvette as can be allowed by patent law. A GM 350cid engine powers the vehicle and the beefy 350 automatic transmission backs it up. The white wall tires and chrome wheels are paired with "baby moons" and are not standard 53 Corvette but are period correct. This vehicle offers all the nostalgia of a true 53 with the added benefits of super drivability plus real world horse power and performance. If you are showing, cruising or amassing a classic collection, this car leaves nothing to be desired. The excellent condition shown in the quality craftsmanship and by assembly engineering that is second to none makes this vehicle speak to its finely tuned performance, however you choose to look at it. The car handles very nicely, the ride is superb and it's sure to turn heads wherever it cruises. Ail of these features are at a significant cost savings compared to the original and nearly impossible to find at any price, 53 Vette. Titled as a 1998 SPCNS.
