    This absolutely stunning Corvette has been judged and awarded the prestigious NCRS Top Flight certificate. Judging sheets are included. This is the 2nd lowest production year ever for a Corvette with only 700 being made total! This is number 640. It has been body off frame restored to a very high standard. One of the best restorations I’ve seen. It also has every option that was available.
    1955 showed big improvements for the Corvette. First year for a V-8, 12 volt system and electric wipers.

    EXTERIOR: Far better than it was brand new. The body is absolutely pristine. It is laser beam straight, no damage. The gaps are precise, doors click shut. The gypsy red paint is literally polished like a red piece of glass. I don’t see any cracking, chips or scratches anywhere. Every piece of chrome is restored to show quality level. The convertible frame was restored, it has a tan Haartz cloth in mint shape. The side windows are restored, the glass and the chrome frames are excellent. The weather strips and seals have been replaced. The wheels are painted body color, the spinner hubcaps are in excellent shape. They each have reproduction BFG Silver Town whitewall tires.

    INTERIOR: Restored like new. All red cars came with white upholstery and red stitching. Correct tight loop carpet and the unique shifter are on the floor. The dash area is beautiful. Gauges are restored, knobs and steering wheel are excellent. The door panels are restored. It has the optional signal seek radio, heater, emergency brake, turn signals and courtesy lights that work.

    ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Correct 265 V8 engine. The Corvette’s made 33 horsepower more than any other Chevy with a hotter cam and 4 barrel carb. Everything appears correct: the manifolds, Chevrolet script valve covers, pie pan air cleaner and chrome ignition shielding. Correct stainless braided wires, original choke tube, plug wire holders, hoses and clamps. The wiring harness was replaced. Every component was restored. It has electric wipers and optional washers.

    TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Restored like brand new and it is complete. The entire compartment was painted neatly. Under the floor mat is a matching spare and whitewall tire. It has the complete jack assembly too. The bag was reproduced that holds the door windows.

    UNDERSIDE: The body was off the frame and the underside is restored and detailed like brand new. The floors are raw fiberglass in excellent condition. They’ve been cleaned, no damage. The chassis has been disassembled, prepped and painted smooth satin black. The assembly line markings have even been duplicated. The entire suspension was rebuilt, it has correct spiral shocks. Steering was rebuilt. The brakes were rebuilt, has stainless brake lines, e-brake assembly is hooked up. Looking up at the motor it is spotless, fuel pump and starter are restored. It has the correct date coded Powerglide transmission that looks like new. Rebuilt drive shaft, original rear end stamped MW with 3.55 gears.

    Truly an outstanding restoration, one of the best I’ve seen. You don’t have to take my word, it’s been judged by the experts!

    I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
    Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car’s condition in detail.
