Looking For 1955 Corvette #1195


1964 Impala

Recommended Posts

Hoping someone on this forum would have some ore information on a 1955 Corvette VIN number VE55S001195. This car was owned by my grandfather in the early 1960s and was his pride and joy. The car is pictured when my grandfather owned it.  Unfortunately it was involved in a rear end accident and was sold by him. It has remained his favorite car that he has ever owned and would really enjoy seeing the car again. I posted on the corvette forum asking for information on this car and did receive some more information on its whereabouts. It was for sale on ebay in 2010 and the listing is pictured below. It was also owned by a Roger Kuske out of San Diego for a while. When I contacted him he said that he buys and sells corvettes and could not remember who he sold the car to. He said that he may have sold it to a private collection in Thailand or traded it for a 53 corvette in Tennessee. So can anyone help us bring this car to light again?

Not sure if any of this information helps but, here goes what I found. According to the C1 Corvette registry,  the number you listed as the VIN doesn't seem to match any 1955 Corvettes.  In 1955 only 700 Corvettes were built with VIN VE55S001001 thru VE55S001700. Sorry for the bad news. I wish you the best of luck. If I can help any further,(not that I've been any help)  hollar.
