As such, their collectibility factor goes through the roof, although not many enthusiasts will go for these particular versions on account of the feeble 235ci (3.9-liter) Blue Flame six-cylinder engine that had just 150 horsepower.
Still, we can imagine that prices for these units will continue to grow over the years. So, it might be a wise investment to snatch one before the auction madness ensues. Even though it’s also slated to go under the hammer in just a few hours, this 1954 Corvette Convertible dressed up in the rare shade of Pennant Blue hasn’t yet gone overboard with the current highest bid of $25k (at the time of writing).
It's offered on behalf of the wide-ranging Brian Wedding Collection (which includes lots of other interesting American muscle cars) by the Freije & Freije Auctioneers at their Burkhart Evansville, Indiana headquarters. And it looks absolutely impeccable, although we could also be a little fooled by the decidedly low resolution of the accompanying beauty shots.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much specific information either, except for the obvious mix of a rare Pennant Blue shade with the Beige interior and soft top, as well as the 150-horsepower Blue Flame six-cylinder engine. On the other hand, this is probably enough for any car collector looking for a pristine Corvette from this particular model year.
