Featured Business of the Month - ProTeam Corvette


A world famous collection of classic Corvettes can only be found at ProTeam Corvette Sales here in Napoleon, Ohio. Their entire stock of 1953 to 2010 Corvettes is stored in climate controlled indoor showrooms year round. Many of their Corvettes have been beautifully restored to like-new condition & carry prestigious honors such as the Bloomington Gold Certification, NCRS Top Flight award, & the Triple Crown designation. Demand for these investment grade, vintage Corvettes has steadily increased over the years with many of the rarest Corvettes falling into private collections & reserved from sale. ProTeam Corvette Sales has long been recognized as the nation's leader in classic Corvette sales, service & restoration with classic Corvette sales estimated at over 10,000.

The latest spectacular Corvette to hit the car scene from ProTeam is the oldest known Corvette Race Car.

This Daytona Beach "NASCAR Unit" was created by Chevrolet Engineering for NASCAR stock car racing, and was probably a dual branding effort between Chevrolet's Ed Cole and NASCAR's Bill France. This effort was part of Ed Cole's push to save the Corvette from extinction (700 sales in 1955) and Chevrolet's first effort in creating a brand image of speed and performance lasting through seven generations of Corvettes. This Daytona Beach NASCAR 1953 Corvette Convertible, VIN # E53F001211, is one of two, a 1953 and a 1955, that were built/rebuilt by Chevrolet Engineering to be equipped with dual four high output 1956 engines for the NASCAR circuit. 

The highly publicized 1953 NASCAR Corvette recently reached a bid nearing two million dollars
at the 2015 January Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction...but the story doesn't end there. The car will spend time resting on its laurels with a stay at the National Corvette Museum NASCAR exhibit later this spring. Other honors in the coming year include an invitation to COBO Hall's Autorama, Racer's Reunion at Occoneechee Orange Speedway, and it will compete for NCRS's prestigious American Heritage award. Do not be surprised to see it on one of your favorite cable TV shows. 

When not on the celebrity circuit it will sit in Napoleon among ProTeam's World Famous Corvette Collection where its historic transformation will be complete with an engineered-design tailor-fit roll bar. There is still unfinished business. A concerted effort to research #211 remains in high gear as they've only scratched the surface of this car's story.
