Roadster - Six Cylinder
Chassis Num: VE55S001233
One of only 700 Corvettes built in 1955, this car was found in parts in the late 1980's. Physical evidence indicated that much of the car's past life was spent racing and thus the car was restored to continue that tradition. Originally fitted with a 265 cubic-inch V8, it now has a 283 cubic-inch engine. It was also upgraded with safety modifications for modern day racing, however, the owner made every effort to retain the 'period' look of the vehicle as it might have been in the 50's.
