Condition & Features

Now before all the purists get upset that someone modified a somewhat rare 1954 Corvette, take a closer look. This one was skillfully built from the ground up as a tribute to Zora Arkus-Duntov’s V8 test mule, the car that virtually guaranteed the Corvette’s future. The fact that it also pares the early Corvette shape down to its bare essence only helps in the looks department and with modern tech under the skin, it remains highly usable every day. Everything on this car is newly restored within the last year and the custom body modifications closely mirror those used by Duntov to create a legitimate 150 MPH Corvette. The early Corvette’s soft, doughy look is gone, replaced by a clean, pared-down racer look that’s quite possibly the most attractive C1 ever built. No wasted pieces, no extraneous chrome, just straight fiberglass and that beautiful Corvette shape that simply speaks for itself. Build quality is very good, and the builder skillfully kept the “test mule” vibe intact, with some extra details beautifully done. Note the Lexan windshield that is similar to the one the mule wore most often during development work, the single chrome rear-view mirror, and, of course, the traditional toothy Corvette grille. The paint has a bit more pearl in it than the original Polo White, which gives it an updated look. Bottom line, when you show up in this car, you’re guaranteed a lot of attention. The interior skillfully blends the modern with the vintage, starting with the beautifully tailored bucket seats, which are more like racing shells than the Corvette’s original chairs. The speedometer has been relocated to the center of the dash, which is where all the auxiliary gauges lived on the original Corvette, and they’re Equus instruments that do a far better job of monitoring the engine’s status. A modern tilt column and billet wheel make it easy to get comfortable behind the wheel and we especially like the custom-made door panels that eschew comfort in favor of functionality
