This is an investment grade 1954 Corvette, last owner has owned it since 1996. He did a 12 year restoration, the car was completed 10 years ago. Has won every show entered. Body off restoration to NCRS specs, Polo White with Sportsman red interior and beige canvas top, original gauges and Wonderbar radio, 63000 original miles. All original stainless trim rebuffed and original chrome rechromed, including grill oval & teeth. Matching 235 ci Blueflame 150 with 3 Carter side drafts, automatic Powerglide transmission.

The car originally came from Nebraska, where it was owned by a ‘Shriner’, who used it mainly in parades from new. Later it was sold to an owner in Michigan, then in 1969 it was sold to a Mr. Beaky of London, Ontario. Mr. Beaky disassembled the car, sandblasted the frame and primed it, then placed it on a storage rack, where it sat for 27 years, until the last owner bought it in 1996. He restored the entire car. Almost all of the nuts and bolts are original. All the stainless trim, all the chrome plated parts and the hubcaps are original, polished, or chromed back to perfection. The undamaged body was painted in urethane, not the original nitro-cellulose, so the paint is still flawless. The engine is numbers matching, and the transmission, rear axle and frame all have correct date codes for this car. The paint and interior colors are the original colors as the car was produced by GM. The interior is correct and absolutely magnificent. The serial number is 2805, so the 1805th one produced that year. The frame is original, sandblasted, painted, with no repairs ever required. It has the original Wonderbar radio, which works. Although it has been driven less than a 1,000 miles since restoration, it does drive great! Dutch registration.
