Barn Find: 1954 Corvette Pulled from Field in Upstate New York

Some collectors will say that when it comes to Early C1 Corvettes (1953-55) the 1954 Corvette is the red-headed step child compared with the 300 1953 Corvettes produced the year earlier or the 700 V8-powered 1955 that came a year after.

Corvette Values: 1998 Corvette Coupe

Most of our Corvette Values submissions deal with classic Corvettes so its refreshing when we get to take a closer look at something a bit more modern. MW of Nebraska submitted this 1998 Silver Corvette Coupe to Corvette Values because his bank required a Corvette Appraisal to cover the value of the loan:

1998 Corvette Coupe. VIN 1g1yy22g3w5120XXX. Silver with Black leather interior. 6-Speed manual transmission. 64,400 miles. All original with no mods other than a Corsa exhaust. Mechanicals and body listed as in Good condition. Original owner history is available but no sales documentation exists.

Find out how we valued this Corvette after the jump.

Update on The Dragon Vette

We got an update on the Dragon Vette that confirms what we wrote about in our original post – the world’s worst custom Corvette is now rocking a supercharger that should boost his horsepower from the standard 436 hp to around 600 hp. According to a member over at LS1Tech.com, the Dragon Vette was spotted at a local dealership getting the centrifugal supercharger installed and most surprising is that under the hood, all appears to be stock and unmolested.
