Don't know how many, but I am thinking the most obvious difference would be the three speed manual transmission behind the 265.

That may not be your answer but I don't believe there was ever a 6 cyl Vette with anything but a powerglide.

That may be so, but is was available as a option. Remember I said I was not talking about options.

How about the 55 went to 12 volt ignition?

Yes you are right that in 1955 Chevy introduced the 12v system and in 1954 the Corvette used a 6 volt system. My question was, in 1955 (only) what was the major component difference between the V-8 equipped car and the 6 cyl. equipped car?

Actually the 3 spd was listed as a option for the 6 cyl although they never built that combination. The answer I was looking for was that the V-8 had a twelve volt system and the 6 cyl had a 6v system.

As to how many 6cyl. were manufactured as 1955 Corvettes a the answer is either 6 or 7. I won't name my source because it's the best and most complete source of Corvette info I've come across and I want to try to torture you guys with stupid questions for a long time to come!
As a side note, interestingly enough of the 700 Corvettes built in 1955 , 625 had Powerglides.
Go for it!

I was going to say the 265 had two more pistons.

Your probably right. My source said 6 in the over view text but 7 in the production charts. Typo? Who knows. Not many that's for sure.

Just an interesting note production numbers for the 53 are listed as 300 on most articles,But i wrote to GMin 1970 when i bought a 1953 corvette serial #062xxxxx to see what i could find out about the car, i received a letter back stating they were 360 produced the first 60 were destroyed by gm as they were severly abused during testing .the remaning 300 were given to choice dealers not suppose to be sold but they were,the letter stated mine was the 2nd car released to public.they wanted to know my complete adress and directions condition and when they could pick it up,They never ask a PRICE. by the time i received the letter i had already sold it .it is in a musem in Mareitta ga now not for sale,If i could only get my foot that high i would have to kick my own xxx every time i see a vette
