For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet Corvette in Burr Ridge, Illinois


Vehicle Description

This stunning frame off restored example is 1 of just 15 Corvette Copper with Dark Beige interior '55's built. It is believed to be 1 of just 75 Corvettes built with a 3 speed manual transmission. It has been carefully and very correctly frame off restored to a very high standard using many original parts in the process! The car is restored to what it would have looked like when delivered new in '55 although it has today's 2 stage paint and a black powder coated frame. It has the period correct numbers matching block with many correctly dated parts. The car has been stored properly and driven sparingly since the restoration, it is in excellent condition throughout and looks absolutely beautiful in this rare, one year only color combination. The excellence of the restoration also extends to the mechanicals, as well as the cosmetics. It runs and drives just as a '55 should. It's comes with the unrestored but very good condition side curtains and case. This will be a great car for a special collection and maybe to get judged at some major car shows. This is one of the nicest '55's we've ever seen!
