1954 Chevrolet Corvette C1 / E54S002316 Chassis Information

Roadster
Chassis Num: E54S002316
Sold for $51,700 at 2009 RM Sothebys.
The Corvettes were built by small groups of technicians, rather than on an assembly line. The fiberglass bodies were virtually handmade and did not carry Fisher Body Style numbers like all the other GM models. Minor changes were made for 1954 including a different window storage bag, air cleaners, starter and rerouting of the fuel and brake lines. Additionally, a wider array of colors was available to buyers.

This example is a numbers matching example finished in the classic combination of Polo White with sportsman red interior and a beige cloth top. It has never been fully restored and has been well maintained in the collection of its current owner.

In 2009, it was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $75,000-$90,000. The lot was sold for the sum of $51,700 including buyer's premium.
