  • 1953 Corvette with Studebaker content

    Found this on the Jalopy Journal today. Interesting use of a signature Studebaker part.

        Even though I like the stock look better, I do like this. Now had this been a recent custom, I think I'd look at it differently

          I like it a lot.

          I thought 54 was the first year for the Corvette. Am I wrong?

            Yes. '53 was the 1st year.

              54 had a bunch of Corvette concepts though including one with a hardtop, Corvair (fast back extending past license plate), and a Nomad.

                Maybe in 1959 when this was done a 6 year old car, even the first year 'vette, it wasn't such a big deal doing a full custom job on it.

                    That is really neat! I would rather see it with the Blue Flame six, but for 'vette customs, I really like this one. Maybe if I find a trashed body someday, something based on this would be very interesting indeed!
