Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1955

I'm retiringnow thatall my children are out of college, finally. I'm selling my '55 Corvette with great remorse because of its beauty and it's fun to drive. Itappeals to admirers of all ages. There were only 700 of these gems produced in 1955 andthiswas the FIRST yearto havethe 265 V8 engine (#F55FG), along with thepowerglide automatic transmission,which runs and sounds great. I had a frame on restoration done in 2012 by Sonny Hester, a well known Corvette restorer.He removed the paint down to the fiberglass and then repainted with two part paint, (base coat/clear coat) 2000 Corvette Victory Red paint.The interior wasredone after that process.After the paint and interior was almost completed, Sonny had a quadruple heart bypass and never fully recovered to complete the full restoration. There are somesmaller partsthat may not be accurate for this car, but for the most part, it is original '55 Corvette parts, including motor and powerglide transmission. It has alwaysbeen stored inmy company vehicle facility, protected from all elements. I purchased the car in 2004, in Pennsylvania, and it had 41,680 actual miles on the title and the sworn odometer statement from the dealer. It now has around 43,000. At the time I purchased the '55, I had a 1954 Corvette that I restored, so it was a few years before we started concentrating on the '55. This car is ready for show.It hasanAM radio, convertiblewhite top, along with thespare tire, jack, lug wrench and side curtains in the trunk. It will beagreat investment opportunitybecause it isone of the rarest of all Corvette models, and it will provide an outstanding addition to anyone's collection. In my opinion, the '53-'55 is the most unique body style of all Corvettes. Please remember, the 1955 model is the first year to have the V8 engine, whichmakes ita more collectable automobile. I have more photos and information for serious buyers.
