The Early Corvette Years

The 1953 to 1955 Corvettes were at one time the main focus of the Corvette collector and restoration hobby. Over the years, however, collectors and restorers started to focus on later cars. Collecting and restoring 53 to 55 Corvettes now represents a very small part of the Corvette hobby.

Those who drove, collected and restored 53 to 55 Corvettes generated a considerable amount of knowledge regarding these cars and their parts. This knowledge is now disappearing, as time marches on and the holders of the knowlege retire from the hobby.

This website is dedicated to those who first loved the 53 to 55 Corvettes, and attempts to pass on some of their knowledge and wisdom. The website also tracks sales of 53 to 55 Corvettes, to help those thinking of joining or leaving the ranks of 53 to 55 Corvette owners.
