The 1954 Corvette was built at a newly renovated facility located in St. Louis, Missouri. This model year was crucial in the survival of the car and its ongoing development. Being a "sports car" without a manual transmission caused the car to have somewhat of an identity crisis compared with competing cars of the era. Today these cars are firmly defined as true collectibles.

The early Corvette is known for its sensational style, outstanding performance and its low center of gravity producing a fine-handling machine. The Corvette has a 235-cid, 155-hp Blue Flame six-cylinder engine mated to a Powerglide two-speed automatic transmission; dual exhaust was also standard on this model. Optional AM radio is included; other equipment includes wide whitewall tires and factory wheel covers.

This example is presented in Sportsman Red with tan soft-top and red interior. Of the 3,640 Corvettes built this model year 3,230 came in Polo White; 300 in Pennant Blue; 4 were Black and 100 were finished in Sportsman Red. The information on this color being original to this car has not been determined, but with only 3,640 total cars produced, it is still rare and an achievement to acquire one.
