Vehicle Description
1953 Corvette Convertible
Polo White with Beautiful Red Interior and Black Canvas Soft Top.  Original "Blue Flame" 235 Straight 6 with Powerglide Automatic Transmission.  Complete Rotisserie Restoration that has earned a 2015 Top Flight Award.  The story is as great as the car... Purchased from the original owner in 1962 by Lyle E. Hill who knew the car from new and who's estate sold the car in 2014 to the most recent owner, a very high end collector in the Phoenix area.  Mr. Hill "disassembled" the car in 1968 when he was called to duty in the Army and sent to Germany.  In his daughter's words "he said he didn't want it sitting around for 2 years not being run, or worse that someone would be driving it while he was away.  He loved his 087 and was just a little possessive of it"  Mr. Hill returned from duty in 1970, started on a family... and life...and so 087 sat until the early 80's when the family moved to a home with sufficient land to build a barn to begin the restoration.  It was finished for the 2003 50th Anniversary event in Flint MI.  If the stories were all as good as this, I wish all these old cars could talk.  This is not just a piece of Corvette History, this is a piece of American History.  From passion to own a Corvette, to answering the call of duty, to putting family priorities first, and all the time having the patience to wait for the right time to reignite that passion again... this car deserves one heck of a garage to call home.
