Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to offer this extremely cool 1954 Chevrolet Corvette for sale. Between the "Blue Flame" engine and unique transmission, this car is definitely a time capsule from an earlier era of performance cars.
Under the hood of this beauty is an unusual engine by modern corvette standards, an I6. That's right, this beauty comes with chevrolet's 235 CID Blue Flame straight six. The engine is notable for having three side draft Carter carburetors and a relatively high compression ratio for the time. Ensuring the relability and cosmetic appeal of this engine is a rebuild and repaint performed by Lee's Paint and Body here in Houston, Texas. Sending the power to the rear end is chevrolet's very unique and quirky Powerglide two-speed automatic transmission. The transmission was also rebuilt with the engine roughly 1,000 miles ago. This car features extensive mechanical work to ensure its reliability and drivability. Some of the work done to the car include the rebuilt powertrain, new battery, fuel tank and hardline flush, new fuel pump and filter, new emergency brake hardware, and a new brake line. Receipts are included and show exaclty what has been done to the car recently.
Moving outward, this beauty is finished in Polo White paint that is in decent condition with a few chips and scratches. The soft top on the car is in good condition and moves freely. Supporting each corner of this american icon are steel wheels wrapped in almost brand new whitewall radial tires that retain the original look and feel of the car while providing better handling and increased safety over the original bias ply tires. Overall, the exterior of this car is in decent to good condition and is well suited to be a weekend driver, not a show car.
Upon entering this classic vette, the driver will sit atop red leather seats that are comfortable and in good condition. The red carpet is also clean and in good condition. In the summer months, the driver will appreciate the convertible soft top that allows for plenty of sunshine and fresh air to penetrate the cabin. If the driver ever tires of the classic sound of that straight six, the car is equiped with an AM radio for your listening pleasure. Overall this is a nice car with a sound powertrain that will provide the new owner with lots of fun and enjoyment.
