The product of a comprehensive restoration, this beautiful 1955 Chevrolet
Corvette Roadster is one of 325 Polo White examples that rolled off the assembly
line that year, just a total of 700 built. Still motivated by the original 265 CI V-8
engine and Powerglide automatic transmission, it has been well maintained for
many years. Sporting a pushbutton radio, the pristine two-seater rolls on
Firestone 6.70-15 bias-ply wide whitewall tires with full-size wheel covers. The
California car features a beautifully restored top and bright-red interior, presenting
well, especially under the hood. The engine and its surrounding compartment
are very well detailed with a chrome air cleaner and valve covers being the
noteworthy highlights.
