Restored Corvette Roadster 235ci Blue Flame 6cyl Power Glide Automatic ///
Wrapping glorious, jet-inspired fiberglass around a correct Blue Flame 6-cylinder, a correct Powerglide 2-speed and a full roster of options, this Corvette is an enticingly early edition of America's favorite sports car! The beneficiary of a detailed, ground-up restoration, this awesome Vette, one of only 3,640 produced in 1954, is a spectacular throwback to timeless MoTown Mojo! The car's composed fiberglass body is sinuous and solid, placing literal emphasis on Space Age design and appeal. And its classic Pennant Blue paint is clean, glossy and awesomely unique. Upgraded to a 12-volt electrical system in preparation for a jaunt in the inaugural Mille Miglia North America Tribute 2011, this classic's coveted Blue Flame 6-cylinder is correct to the 1954 model year. That mill sends torque through a correct Powerglide 2-speed, which spins a familiar Hypoid axle that's loaded with standard, 3.55 gears. Both stops and turns are manual affairs. And at the corners of the car, bright red steelies spin 6.70-15 Firestone Deluxe Champion whitewalls around ornate, bowtie-branded saucers. Between the doors, stitched and contoured side panels frame broad bucket seats that have been upgraded with both leather and heat. In front of those seats, an elegant dash centers an optional signal seeking radio between classy gauges and a factory heater. Below that dash, sleek Daytona carpet floats color-keyed mats around a modern fire extinguisher and a simple shifter. There's a modern, MP3-capable audio system that's within arm's reach. And the driver spins a big steering wheel around a polished horn ring that's finished with an intricate Corvette centerpiece. This cool Corvette is a charming throwback to simpler, more grandiose times when, in car design, emotion and adrenaline were far more important than practicality and safety.
