Description
Lot #795 - Only 700 1955 Corvettes were produced, most being equipped with the "new" 265 V-8 engines. This is one of 10 or fewer 1955 Corvettes to leave the factory with 234 six-cylinder engines (see "The Complete Corvette Guide-Vol. 1", by Noland Adams, p56 & 65). When car was purchased in 1982, a total body-off restoration was started, finishing in 1985. The restored chassis was displayed at the NCRS National in Bowling Green, KY in 1983 where members witnessed the serial numbers stamped in the frame and the mechanical points distinguishing it as a 1955 six-cylinder chassis. Awarded NCRS Top Flight Awards at Boston in 1985, Cypress Gardens in 1986 and 1991. Serial number 433 of 700, the latest produced six-cylinder authenticated to date. Is this the last six-cylinder Corvette produced by General Motors?
