The 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Hardtop was a Convertible Coupe. It was one of the Corvette based Motorama dream cars shown in 1954 and was a version fitted with a removable hardtop.
The hardtop feature would not become available until 1956. It took General Motors and Chevrolet three years to figure out that the consumer wanted roll up windows, outside door handles and door locks.
Like the 1954 Chevy Corvette Corvair and 1954 Chevy Corvette Nomad only 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Hardtop Motorama Experimental Show Cars were made. How many? No one really knows.
