What year? It's obviously early, but I don't know how to tell the 53-54-55 apart.

The whistling sound you heard was that line going over my head. I guess I assumed you had 53 other projects under your belt.

It's intact as far as I could tell, numbers matching Blueflame 150 under the hood, both tops, of your the rag top is only the frame but it's all there. Get it stripped down and cleaned up and catalogued, then I'll start the process.

That is an awesome find. Doesn't look to be in too bad of shape either.

I am currently restoring at '54 Chevy 3100. A corvette of that era is also on my list, probably a little later than yours as I am a fan of the twin headlights from the 58-63 models (i think that's the years).

I'm hoping to fin one in similar shape to yours once I get there, do you mind me asking how much you paid for it? Some times those things go for crazy money in terrible shape.

It is a 54 Corvette.

I was about to say from removing the car to checking out carbs and pulling the engine things are moving WAY too fast, even without rusty old hardware keeping it all together.

The article is 6 and a half years old. So there is some level of trolling going on, even if it's him.

Early vettes had something called the "blue flame 6" Chevy didn't come out with a V-8 until 1955.

Doesn't bridge the gap that the article was from 2008 and he is acting like he found it and had it brought to him yesterday.
