Introducing a truly unique and stunning car – the 1954 Chevrolet Corvair Motorama Recreation. This one-of-a-kind hand-built car is a recreation of the long-lost Chevrolet Corvair concept that made its debut at the 1954 GM Motorama event in New York City. It is powered by a powerful 265ci (4.3-litre) prototype V8 engine with a four-barrel Holley carburettor, paired with a four-speed 700R4 automatic transmission. This recreation is truly a work of art and has received extensive coverage in the motoring media and has won six awards, including first place at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, Ault Park Concours d’Elegance, and the Milwaukee Concours d’Elegance.
The Corvair Motorama Recreation features hand-made fibreglass body panels, including a Corvette front end, a wrap-around windshield, and a sweeping rear. The body panels were constructed by Brett Henderson of Blue Flame Restorations, with the current owner’s assistance, to faithfully replicate the Motorama concept car. The interior is equally impressive with two-tone cream and red leather upholstery and chrome-trimmed dials. The window glass is custom-made and wired into power windows rather than manual winders. Mechanically, the car retains the original 1954 Corvette suspension and steering but has been fitted with front disc brakes, a modified sway bar, and AC Delco shock absorbers.
This car is in excellent condition with no bodywork damage to the custom fibreglass panels. The Crystal Red Metallic paintwork is superb, and the two-tone cream and red leather upholstery is in immaculate condition. The original 1956 dials/gauges have surface wear and ‘patina’ that you would expect, adding to the car’s unique character. The speedometer is currently disconnected, but the car has only covered around 14 miles since the completion of the build.
