Description

No.168, Matching numbers example Polo White on a Sportsman Red Interior with National AACA Hershey top flight award. This 1953 Chevrolet Corvette Blue Flame is 1 of 300 built. In 1953 the corvette was its first production year and the lowest volume corvette ever built. This 53 is outfitted with a 6 cylinder Blue Flame engine that produces 150hp mated to a two speed Powerglide automatic transmission. All 300 corvette built during that year came with the same options and same color. There is to account for only 180 left in the entire world. Because of the short production run the 53 model is the rarest of all Corvettes.
.
This Genuine 1953 first era of Chevrolet Corvette is represented for sale at Euro Prestige Imports. This is an extremely correct and undisturbed restored matching numbers "Blue Flame", without over-restoring as is typical for many 1953's. This top flight award winner & matching number is example no. 168 of 300 Blue Flame's. This 53 Chevy Corvette comes with all its original winning awards.
.
The Exterior quality of restoration is excellent in all regards, understanding that the finish work on the 53s were not up to todays standards for mirror like finish fiberglass. Both body finish and panel fits is representative of the technology available to GM in 1953. More details on this particular one coming very soon, call or text Cyrus at 702.286.3248
