One of 700 Corvettes produced for 1955, the first year with the V8 engine.
Original California car with black plate used through 1995. Brought to New
England in 1999 by collector who kept the car in careful storage with regular
but limited driving in good weather only. Odometer reads 12165 but true
mileage unknown. The car was recently recommissioned mechanically and it
starts right up and drives strong and straight. Plenty of pep and tight handling
with no known mechanical issues. Has wide white older bias ply tires that
would benefit from upgrading. Older restoration. Presentable paint with a
couple of paint cracks. Older ragtop and what looks like original carpet.
Exterior chrome and trim appear original with no pitting or damage--just
expected light wear. White upholstered seats with red piping in very good
condition. Seat belts installed. Original radio does not work. Interior chrome
and trim appear original and unrestored with light wear and aging. The white
dash has been repainted and shows some age. Fuel gauge works intermittently.
Overall very clean undercarriage. Trunk features jack stand, jack handle, side
windows with carrying case, spare tire and wooden spare tire cover.
