1953 Chevrolet CorvetteVery Rare 2003 / 1953 "Commemorative Edition" Corvette
When GM unveiled the 50th Anniversary Edition Corvette in May of 2002, many Corvette enthusiasts were underwhelmed. While the new Anniversary Red is a very nice color and the new interior is quite handsome, the Corvette community was hoping for more. Historically, all the special edition Corvettes (Pace Cars, 25th Anniversary, 35th Anniversary, 40th Anniversary, "96 Collectors Edition, etc) have always been just regular Corvettes with different trim and paint, but this time it was a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to do something really special.
And someone did just that. GM designer Steve Pasteiner took the look of the original 1953 Corvette and updated it to fit onto the high-tech chassis of the current C5 Corvette. GM commissioned Magna Steyr to build a Concept Proto-type with a eye towards having GM adopt it as "THE" 50th Anniversary Edition Corvette. GM decided on a move to a more conservative strategy and Magna Steyr abandoned the idea. So the former GM designer Steve Pasteiner purchased the rights and factory molds and created Advanced Automotive Technologies and produced a very limited number of the 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition. This one is #73 of 100 built.
This particular one is finished in Pearl White with Brite Red Leather Interior and only has 11,600 original miles. Loaded with every option in 2003, 5.7 liter LS Motor and 700R4 Transmission, Heads-up Display, Auto Climate Control, Power Seats, Power Windows, Glass Rear Window with Defrost, Ride Control, Chrome Alloy Wheels, and so much more.
The car has never seen rain or snow, always kept inside with top up. Never smoked in, and a Perfect Car Fax with no Accident Reports.
