The 1954 Corvette offered here is a splendid example of the original American sports car. In 2000, this 61,000-mile example was treated to a complete concours-quality restoration and finished in the definitive color scheme of Polo White over Sportsman Red upholstery.

Restored and detailed to the highest possible standards, this handsome Corvette has since been campaigned at leading concours events with tremendous success. Most notably, it received a prestigious NCRS Gold award as well as an AACA First Prize at the annual Fall Meet in Hershey, Pennsylvania. In 2001, the Corvette was a Vette Magazine winner at Topeka, Kansas, and two years later it continued its winning streak in Norwalk, Ohio. Most recently, the Corvette was shown at the 2006 Palm Beach Concours d’Elegance, where it earned Best in Class honors.

Meticulously maintained in a private East Coast collection for the last five years, this spectacular Corvette is in excellent condition and is poised for further success at local and national shows.
