Lone Star Muscle Cars has for sale this beautiful treasure of American automotive history-- a 1954 "Corvette Dream Car".
Harley J. Earl, a guru at GM, envisioned an American sports car that could compete with the import sports cars of the day. Not long after convincing GM executives that they needed to build an inexpensive sports car, the "Corvette Dream Car" debuted at the New York City Motorama in January, 1953. The two-seat roadster was an immediate hit. In the crowd was a Russian-born engineer named Zora Arkus-Duntov. The car inspired him to write a letter to Ed Cole, chief engineer of the Chevrolet Division at GM. A year later, Arkus-Duntov was working at GM and as the saying goes, the rest is history.
1954 Corvette production moved to St. Louis, Missouri where it would stay for another 27 years. The new assembly plant was able to turn out 50 Corvettes a day. The output of the Blue Flame Six was 155 HP and the Powerglide automatic transmission remained the only transmission available. Base price was $2,774 and total of 3,640 Corvettes were produced in 1954. The Corvette soon became successful and so was born the American sports car!
