A little late to post July’s Car Of The Month, but we are still in the first week of August so I thought it would be ok! Instead of a quick sports car this month, we take it back a couple years with this beautiful, 1955 Cherry Red Corvette. And boy what a beauty she is! I love classic cars and this one is right up my alley. Gorgeous cherry red color, cute little bug-eye headlights, 3-speed manual transmission, V8 2-seat cruiser.
Can I just take one home with me now?
1955 Corvette Specs
Year, Make, Color: 1955, Corvette, Cherry Red.
Engine: The 1955 Corvette I found for pictures is a rare one. A powerful V8 engine, but 3-speed manual. Which is pretty rare considering the norm back then was only a 2-speed manual car.
Engine Performance: The V8 carries 195 HP, Powerglide, going 0-60 in 8.7 seconds. I did say she’s a vintage!
Weight: 2910 lbs is standard for 1955 Corvettes. They aren’t that big!
MPG: Ok, who really cared about this back then..? We just wanted looks, speed, popularity, and a smooth ride!
Interior: Oh my favorite! This 1955 Corvette kept the Cherry Red color and brought it into the interior. White with red accents. How great is that! The interior is pristine! I mean just look at the pictures below.. and try not to drool.
