Seller's Description - 1954 Corvette
This car was sold new to Bernard H. Wilson of Rahway, N.J.  It is Polo White with red interior and has a white hard top & a tan canvas soft top.
In March 1957, Mr. Wilson had a General Motors approved McGurk Engineering Co. engine upgrade done to the car.  It involves a 261 cu. in. Chevy truck engine block bored to give 278 cu.in. piston displacement.  The heads were ported & ports polished and oversized valves installed.  The compression ratio was 9 to 1.  The chassis mileage was 3,334.  This conversion was performed by Fox’s Garage, 1351 Lawrence St., Rahway, N.J.  I have the documentation.
In Oct. 1959, Mr. Wilson developed major vision problems and gave this car to his daughter in Fremont, IN.  She never titled the car and traded it in to my father, who was a salesman for an Angola, IN dealer.  He bought it from the dealer with approx. 6,000 miles on it.
My father owned the car until I bought it in Nov. 1980 with approx. 17,500 miles on it.  I drove it until it had just under 20K miles and parked (stored) it until 1996, at which time I hired Kent Kelsey of Ft. Wayne, IN to do a body off full restoration.  I have a photo album of the restoration.  The body was painted with base-coat clear-coat by Chris Craft of St. Joe, IN.
I got the car back in July of 1998, put a set of Coker wide-white radial tires on it and have driven it (mainly to cruise-in’s & car shows) on dry, sunny summer days since.  It now has 35,300 actual miles; it is a dependable driver, has original interior and chrome trim and can easily be made into a Bloomington Gold car.
