Here’s a chance to own a piece of Corvette history – a first year 1953 Corvette and the #274 Corvette ever built. This first year Corvette was built towards the end of the ’53 production run so many of the enhancements made during the year would have made it on this car.

Oh No! SpeedRacer is Selling is Mach 5 Corvette?

Is the economy so bad that even SpeedRacer has to part with his famous Mach 5 race car? Actually, we were tipped to this unique Corvette-based Mach 5 from a twitter user who passed by it on Ventura Boulevard where the car was on the lot of Woodland Hills Quality Motors in LA. The body style is similar to one of Mark Towle’s The Real Mach 5 replicas down to the wheels, but I couldn’t tell you if this is one of his or not. You can be SpeedRacer for just $27,995 although we are pretty sure that it doesn’t come with a monkey.
