With just 300 built, the 1953 Corvette is one of the rarest and most coveted Corvettes ever built.
On January 17, 1953, a prototype Corvette took the automotive world by storm at General Motors’ Motorama auto show at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. Nearly 68 years later, the Corvette continues to do so.
That’s what makes this 1953 Corvette so special. Who knew that 6 decades later, the hand-laid fiberglass bodied two-seater with its stove-bolt 6-cylinder engine would be the forebear of the amazing Corvettes we have today!?
Corvette Mike Midwest is now offering 1953 Corvette serial #067 for sale after a full frame-off restoration by one of the country’s most well-known Corvette restorers. The restoration was completed in March of 2020 and the car comes with documentation going back to 1982.
In 2012, it found its way to Canada where the restoration was nearly completed.
After bringing the restoration to completion, Corvette Mike Midwest is now offering the car for sale for $244,990. Given the rarity of 1953 Corvettes, quality of restoration and the pedigree of this one, the price is reasonable for such an amazing piece of Corvette history.
