1955 Corvette for Sale

Stop by Vintage Vettes in Kansas City, Missouri to see this 1955 Corvette for sale. The dealership tells us the Pennant Blue cruiser underwent a body-off restoration and is powered by a 195 horsepower V8 engine. Here’s more from the seller:

“Corvettes become colorful in this transition year.  Only 700 units were produced, but Chevrolet decided that the Corvette need to have a greater appeal.  Let’s have Copper, Yellow, Blue and Red! Consumers loved the ability to choose a color that expressed their personality, and the new power plant – a V8 engine. The V8 raised the horsepower to 195 from the 155 found in the inline 6. Styling on 53-55’s are truly unique. Wire baskets over the headlights, high protruding taillights, and lack of exterior door handles, made for an intriguing design that we still admire and appreciate today. This design is so far removed and seldom seen,  Most people don’t even KNOW it’s a Corvette when it appears on the street!   You will get asked, “What type of car is that?”. The following year was a body style change and the sales exploded to back near 3,500 units.”
