Hemmings Find of the Day – 1954 Chevrolet La Carrera Panamericana racer

Published in

At first glance it might look like a Cuban special, but this 1954 Chevrolet for sale on is actually a veteran of Le Carrera Panamericana, though the ad doesn’t mention its record in the famed race. Still, it looks fairly well equipped and after a check of all the safety systems to make sure they’re up to snuff, it could probably compete again. From the seller’s description:
