It appears it was very labor intensive building them all by hand.

Great photos! Of note there is the very early production... Possibly as low as #4-8, as the first bunch (twenty-something?) were shipped with wheel disks from the Chevrolet Bel Air, as the special Corvette ones were not yet ready. These cars are being hand assembled in Flint, before production moved to St. Louis in 1954.
