Welcome to the Corvette Action Center's 1953 Corvette Registry.  Our goal here is to document online how many 1953 Corvettes still exist, where they are presently located and to put the owners of 1953 Corvettes in touch with one another.  In some listings, the owner's email address will be listed indicating that they have consented to be contacted if desired.  Some owners have consented to be contacted by phone.  If you wish to contact one of the owners by telephone, you must email a request to us so that we can verify that it's ok with the owner.  Phone numbers will NOT be given out to anyone.  If you have any comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.  If you are the legitimate owner of a 1953 Corvette, please feel free to Register / Update your 1953 Corvette by clicking on the tab above.

The Corvette Action Center would like to thank Ron Anderson and Noland Adams for their help and contributions to this online Registry.
