This a great example of a very original and highly authentic, unmolested 1953 Corvette. #257 ever built! It is a real 73,000 mile original car that has been cosmetic restored in some but not all areas.
The body appears to be a nice and clear undamaged original example that was repainted about 10 years ago. With all trim re-chromed and polished. The interior is original in the dash area and gauges and appears to have never been apart. New seat covers , carpets etc from when repainted. The chassis, engine , engine compartment appears to never have been apart other than maintenance. The transmission had never been apart or rebuilt until 2018 and expertly rebuilt by County Corvette. The car amazingly has an original NON DOT 50's spare tire, a bit worn but still there!
The windshield and side glass is all original and properly dated. Also includes very early aftermarket hardtop! This was a mint original car when sold in 1978 for $39,000 to George Sipple. There is a good history summary of this car to 1974 forward including the 1978 sales receipt and title history. Also included are many periodicals from the 50's etc.
This car at first glance looks like a restored perfect car. Combine that with original components and very original chassis and it's a great in between car, thus priced accordingly at $140,000 reduced from $179,900. There are no others available on the market in this condition for this price.
This is a special car. Don't miss it!
