STK 2617 1953 Chevrolet Corvette Tribute

This 1953 Corvette replicar was built in 1988 and is a sound package based on Chevrolet running gear. It is titled/registered in South Carolina and is a very good runner. The solid fiberglass Corvette kit was purchased from Classic Sports Cars, Inc, Holly Hill FL. and is correctly proportioned for a '53 roadster. Nice Polo White enamel was applied by Kit Car World in Orlando, FL and chrome plating was done by Atlantic Coast Plating. The interior is an accurate representation of a '53 Corvette except for the late-model shifter/console. Red vinyl seats and carpets are in very good condition and the dash holds a full complement of VDO gauges that look period correct. The Corvette wheel is mounted on a tilt-column for ease of entry and there is a soft top that snaps on to the windshield and body behind the seats. The donor car was a 1972 Chevy Nova. Components taken from the Nova included: 350ci small-block V8, 3-speed automatic transmission, front suspension, rear axle and drive shaft. The Nova's 350ci motor was rebuilt before the installation and sounds great. It is fitted with an aluminum single-plane high-rise intake and Holley 600cfm carburetor. Exhaust is routed through Chevy manifolds to a dual exhaust system. The transmission is the 3-speed automatic from the Nova. Steering is power assisted and brakes are manual 4-wheel drum w/dual master cylinder. Steel wheels mount Coker wide-white tires and '56 Corvette hubcaps. This is no trailer queen, but rather an accurate, affordable version of the first Corvette that runs great. Check it out – you will not be disappointed. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
