1955 V8 Corvette Roadster
What Mike likes about this car:
“1955 a very significant year indeed. For several reasons, Disneyland opened in Anaheim CA. The first V8 was put into a Corvette and a kid with the name of Mike Vietro (pronounced V8Tro) was born.
Little did he know that Monday evening at 8:47 PM on the 28th of March 1955 his last name would be synonymous with the famous V8 engine Chevy would be known for. Well, that’s not all I like about the 1955 Corvette, that early roadster without roll-up windows, with the wire mesh covered headlight, has always been such a clean design. Smooth, sleek and sexy. This is the early, raw design of a great American Classic. Here we are 65 years later with a very limited number of V8 Corvettes left out of the 700 built. These museum pieces will always be sought after and enjoyed for many more years to come. This is a turn-key cruiser, sorted and judged for your immediate enjoyment. Start the New Year off right, get behind the wheel of this car before its gone. And it will be gone. Happy New Year to all. And a healthy one as well.
Corvette Mike V8tro.”

This 1955 Chevrolet Corvette was fully restored in 2006 and holds the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) highest qualification of Top Flight, placing it in the top 3% of judged Corvettes.
This 40k-mile example comes from the first year of V8 power for the Corvette and is still equipped with its numbers-matching engine backed by a Powerglide 2-speed automatic transmission!
Documentation of its judged performance at the 2006 Quartz Hill event in California is included and shows a score of 4,363 out of 4,510. The 265ci V8 was recently rebuilt and is fitted with correctly date-coded manifolds. This well-documented Corvette has only been driven about 500 miles in the decade since the restoration was completed.
