1954 Chevrolet Corvette C1
The car is finished in red with a tan top over red upholstery, and power comes from an overbored 235ci inline-six paired with a two-speed automatic transmission. Features include triple Carter carburetors with “bullet” air cleaners, a push-button radio, a heater, removable side windows, and dual exhaust exiting through the rear body panel.
The fiberglass body is said to have been repainted in its current red using lacquer paint during the 2010s refurbishment. Features include a chrome grille and side moldings, wire mesh headlight guards, a wraparound windscreen, a clear rear license plate cover, and dual exhaust tips exiting through the rear bodywork between the three-piece rear bumper.
The cockpit features low-back bucket seats that are faired into the rear bodywork and are trimmed in red upholstery with a matching dash pad, carpets, and door panels. Features include a push-button radio, a clock, a heater, and a dash-mounted mirror.
The 235ci Blue Flame inline-six was rated at 150 horsepower when new. It was rebuilt during the refurbishment with .060″-over pistons, new bearings, a replacement camshaft, and a new timing gear set, valve lifters, and gaskets. Induction is provided by three Carter carburetors wearing factory-style “bullet” air cleaners. The valve cover gasket, spark plugs, and battery were replaced in 2020. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission.
All Scheduled Maintenance.
