This is what I was thinking regarding Kerbeck's Corvette. I'm not sure which car he had at your event, but he owns the first experimental Corvette that started it's build in 1951, which GM then based the Corvette for sale to the public in 1953.

This appears to be the same car. We were told it was the third one built and that it was the one that had been displayed at the Waldorf Astoria. According to the link above it (EX122) is actually the prototype (i.e. the first one built).
