Buyavette is pleased to present one of the rarest and most recognizable cars ever built with this BODY-OFF RESTORED 1955 Corvette Convertible! Unlike the 1954 Corvette, of which 3,640 were produced, just 700 Corvettes were built for 1955, with obviously far fewer left today. While the '55 Corvettes look nearly identical to their predecessors from the outside, there's one big difference, and that's under the hood, as 1955 was the first year for a Corvette to feature a V8 engine. Originally assembled on September 7, 1955, this 1955 Corvette Convertible is in nice condition overall, and has had the SAME OWNER SINCE 1976. This owner spent quite a bit of time and money researching how to properly restore this car, and tons of research photos, diagrams, and a few books will accompany this Vette to its new owner. This '55 shows good-vg paint, with a great shine. Convertible top frame is not currently installed, and is likely going to need some restoration work before the new convertible top (also included) can be installed onto it. Original side plexiglass windows (not installed) are included as well. Exterior chrome and stainless are vg, as are the taillights and weatherstripping. Correct T3 headlights are also in place. Steel wheels are vg, and correct style hubcaps are vg-exc. Firestone Deluxe Champion wide whitewall bias-ply tires show an average of 10/32nds tread depth remaining. The interior of this 1955 Corvette Convertible shows vg seats, door panels, steering wheel, and gauges, and a good condition dash pad. Floor covering is good-vg, and a correct appearing AM radio is in place. The Restoration Engine in this car shows correct casting number 3703524, and original casting date July 8, 1955. Correct air cleaner, ignition shielding, intake manifold, braided spark plug wires, chrome valve covers, radiator hoses and hose clamps, and generator are all in place, and the frame is clean, solid, and rust-free. Also included with this car will be a large box of spare parts, spare radio, and an old title for this car dated 1967. This is an extremely rare car, and a great one to consider for anyone looking for a early straight axle -- call us today to bring home this '55 Corvette!
