Roadster
Chassis Num: E54S002425
Sold for $52,250 at 2011 RM Sothebys.
This 1954 Corvette Roadster painted in Sportsman Red wears a distinctive 'Bubble Top,' a rare and unique aftermarket accessory. There were just 25 examples of the Corvette with the 'Bubble Top' produced in 1954, original priced at $350, or nearly 10 percent of the cost of a brand-new Corvette. It is believed that only two of these tops still exist.

This Corvette wears an older, 'body-off-frame' restoration. The convertible top is in fair condition and the bright-work remains good. There is a two-tone red and white interior, AM radio, spare tire, side curtains, and the 235 cubic-inch 'Blue Flame' inline six-cylinder engine breathing through three single-barrel Carter YH side-draft carburetors.

In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the RM Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was estimated to sell for $50,000 - $70,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $52,250 including buyer's premium.
