1954 Corvette

The second year started in St. Louis, MO, sometime in December. The plant was designed to produce 10,000 cars annually. However, they miscalculated the demand, and it took the next six years to exceed 10,000 in annual sales. The crankshaft design in the Blue Flame Six was remodified to increase the horsepower up to 155hp. Three new colors were added in addition to the Polo White. These colors were Pennant Blue, Sportsman Red, and Black. Each 1954 Corvette still had the 6-volt electrical system.
