Lot #1300 - This 1954 Corvette LS1 Custom Resto-Mod is the 3,158th of just 3,640 Corvettes built for 1954. Features a LS1 motor approximately 400hp and 6-speed manual transmission. Modified custom frame, full independent suspension (IRS) and DANA 44 polished aluminum case rear end is fully adjustable and suspended by triangular 4-link adjustable polished coilover springs as well. Ceramic coated custom exhaust system has a note all of its own. The interior features Vintage Air conditioning and heat tucked away out of eyesight to maintain the original C1 look; along with the original instruments, which were adapted to the new LS1 engine. The interiors tan, supple leather, along with the tan Haartz cloth soft-top blending to the understated Pennant Blue Metallic exterior, give the striking stance on this 1954 Corvette Resto-Mod a very special place all of its own. The performance, handling and comfort are entirely modern and thoroughly enjoyable. Over 1700 hours spent on this restoration.
