I went back over to the dealer drop off lot to get a better look at
that Vette I saw earlier. It was on the top of the car carrier on the
back that tilts so the front end was kind of hard to see.
The front & rear end looked just like a 53.
The car was breathtaking to look at.
It had the chrome half curve bumpers, wide oval chrome grille, the wide
oval headlights with the wire mesh covers.
The side molding looked like the arrowhead molding from long ago. The
doors & top were of the 2005 vintage. Gas filler door right behind the
driver door. About the center of the rear tires is where the 05 quarter
began to fade out & the 53 look came in.
The quarter panels looked like 53 with the point / finned ends with the
highmounted tiny round tail lights. The half curve bumpers were also on
the back, even the license plate depression was in the same spot. Even
the body contours front & rear were the same.
The car had 18" ( ? ) chrome wheels and red brake calipers. The
underside of the car looked like it was painted all black.
The car had a Michigan License plate and no window sticker. Perhaps this
is a one of a kind custom made / order for some big Chicago celebrity?
