Nothing like an early C1 Corvette barn find to get your motor running. Check out this 1954 Corvette that was recently discovered and then sold at auction over the weekend in Pennsylvania!
We actually don’t know much about this car other than its a Polo White 1954 Corvette and that it was supposedly parked in 1964 where it has remained for 51 years. The Corvette was offered for sale by Cabin Fever Auctions in Douglassville, PA and a call to their office confirmed that the selling price was $52,000.
The auction descriptions lists the Corvette as also having a “Scotts” aftermarket hardtop. That was sold separately from the car and it brought in $1000.
Looking at the engine, the 6-cylinder blue flame V8 looks complete. We see that it has one of the popular performance upgrades of its day which features a multi-carb intake manifold with two Rochester carburetors and topped off with chrome louvered air cleaners.
Here’s some photos of the 1954 Corvette barn find:
It’s really such a shame that this Corvette was parked 51 years ago. We think about the owner that parked it and all the fun and excitement he missed out over the years. Hopefully the next owner will have this 1954 Corvette back on the road soon!
