A Glance at the 1954 Corvette Brochure: The First All-American Sports Car
We are looking at the 1954 Corvette brochure. This was a sales brochure for the C1 Corvette for 1954. The cover says The First All-American Sports Car. This was also said on the first promotional booklet a year earlier for the 1953 Corvette. The printing came in orange, green, and red-lettered versions.
The 1954 Corvette is a C1 and was the second model year in the first generation. The first-generation Corvette was introduced with the 1953 C1 Corvette. The C1 had many upgrades along the way. We created an overview so you could learn more about the C1 Corvette. If you’re interested in learning more about this gem, check out our C1 Corvette overview here.
Let’s get acquainted with the 1954 Corvette brochure itself and see how Chevrolet marketed its performance, sensational styling, and luxurious comfort. The last page of the brochure gives the 1954 Corvette specifications: Engine, transmission, driveline, wheels, steering, brakes, suspension, frame, gas tank, body, compartments, windows, and top, colors, and car dimensions.
