Posted 03/28/2020

Lot #5038 - In 1972, Chip Miller, co-founder/owner of Carlisle Events and world
famous Corvettes at Carlisle, found the car of his dreams, a 1953 Corvette. The
car was purchased from the original owner's estate in 1972 for $5,000. This
Corvette is VIN #181 of the 300 produced during the first model year. The car
still wears its original tires, top, interior, mechanicals and a majority of the
original paint. The spare tire was never used. The vehicle currently has 9,260
miles on the odometer. Chip swore he's never put the odometer into five digit
territory in his lifetime. Due to complications with amyloidosis in 2004, Chip
passed away. His son, Lance, is selling the vehicle to allow a lucky collector to
enjoy the very best. High points since 1972 include Bloomington Gold Certification
and Hall of Fame, NCRS meets, AACA Senior Award, Franklin Mint produced the
model from this car, Bloomington Gold Special Collection, Meadowbrook Hall
Concours d'Elegance, Zora Duntov paraded with Chip in 1995, America's Motoring
Milestone display, various TV appearances and more. Includes a matching pedal
car. Being sold as a pair with a 2003 Corvette. It has a matching VIN with
the '03 and matching miles. Both vehicles have less than 10,000 original miles.
