For the first time since it was driven off the lot at a Chevy dealership, this 1954 Corvette will soon have a new family’s name on the title.
That’s right. This Corvette, made in just the second year of production, has never left its original family, being passed down from father to daughter during the past 67 years.
Unfortunately, the car has been sitting for the past 34 years, and apparently, the daughter has decided it’s time to part with the family jewel.
This historic car is up for sale on eBay through Wednesday, July 21, and interest has already been high, with 30 bids already pushing the best offer to $35,100.
A full restoration is in order, though the bones are in place for a nice classic when all the work is said and done.
The seller notes that they were able to crank the car, and the numbers-matching inline “Blue Flame” six-cylinder engine still “sounds very healthy.” Likewise, this Texas car turns and steers “very nicely.” The hood, doors, and trunk are said to open and close “very nice.”
Other original parts still in place include the dash, gauges, door panels, chrome, radio, automatic transmission, side windows, jack, convertible, and hubcaps. The car does have new tires and has had only one repaint over the years.
Properly restored, this one could fetch some big bucks, with a car in Fair condition worth $35,000 and in Concours shape more than $150,000, according to Hagerty.
