While there was not much difference between the two model years, Chevrolet considered the 1953 Corvette to be the ‘soft launch’ when introduced. Once the public accepted the car and the concept, Chevrolet went in to full-scale production from 1954, so in a way the 1954 is considered to be the iconic Corvette.
The 1954 Chevrolet Corvette model was offered in various colours and variants such as the convertible top, but one thing remained common – the seat colour and the interior was maintained in red colour.
Considered as the first gen model (C1) the Corvette was meant for the poster-boy who had the money, power and the ability to impress. With heaters, AM stereo, parking brake alarm, etc. provided, about 300 were produced in that year. The price of a Corvette in 1954 was beyond the reach of the common man as it was priced over US$ 3500.
