Car history:
1953 Corvette #297. This 1953 Corvette was built December 24th, 1953. I have had the car in my collection for many years with plans to eventually restore the car. I have come to the realization at this point in my life to slow down and retire. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a rare 1953 Corvette which as you know was the first Corvette and the first American production sports car. This is truly automotive history. After chasing down rumors of this car I finally discovered it many years ago! The car has never been apart. It is absolutely rust free and as far as I was able to surmise is that it has been in Arizona since 1959. It has a incorrect block, however the car comes with two excellent blocks. One block is casting #3701481, G 15 3. The second block is casted #3835911, L 1 3. The cylinder head and valve cover are incorrect and correct reproduction heads and valve covers are available and I will place the new owner in touch with the source. The original hub caps are with the car. The car is otherwise absolutely complete and original and maintains all of its original fiberglass body panels. There is no frame damage or accidents and is simply amazing! There is only one damaged area on the lower (below bumper) right side. This was damaged when unloading from a car trailer when I first acquired the car. It is a simple repair. The 1953 Corvette is a blue chip investment and restoration costs are at bargain pricing in our present economy. $88,000. 32,627 miles. June 24, 2010.
