V8 Power
In 1955 Chevrolet added V8 power to the Corvette. The 265 cubic-inch V8 produced 195 horsepower and was teamed with a Powerglide Automatic transmission. At a base price of $2,909, only 700 Corvettes were built that year. This particular example was one of 120 models painted in Harvest Gold with a Dark Green top.
