Well I finally got my Corvette. This could be ¬†1954 or is it a 1955, honestly I am not sure. We do know the color is a Polo White. Only 5 colors were offered ¬†by Chevrolet ¬†and it had the ¬†power glide automatic 6 cylinder if it was a 1954 and if ¬†it was a 1955 ¬†you could get a V8 also and a 3 speed manual on the later models that year. In ¬†1954 3,640 were built. If it was a 1955 only 700 were made. Let's rewind a bit. The reason I am unsure of the year is I discovered the original car at the Burger King in Lakeland Fl. on a Friday night. I was the weekly car show. ¬†Owner wasn't around so I snapped a picture. If anyone from Lakeland frequents the car show maybe they can share the actual year of the this Corvette.¬†
¬†I wanted to keep the corvette in my painting as close as possible to the real ¬†photo. This is all water color and is 16 x 20 painting on 140# cold pressed paper. I am doing a all car paintings ¬†show at a local restaurant here in Raleigh after the first of year and this beauty will be part of it. Have a great weekend and stay warm. Cold weather is on its way here ¬†Monday, Have a blessed week to. Se Ya!
