1953 1954 1955 1956 1957 Used Corvettes

1953 was the dawn of one of America's most storied sports cars; the Chevrolet Corvette. It was the first of it's kind to come from the gargantuan Chevrolet, who was better known for it's luxury land yachts and boulevard cruisers.

1953 Classic Corvette History

Introduced at the 1953 New York Auto Show, the Polo White prototype of the Corvette met with an enthusiastic response. GM wasted no time and production cars rolled off the line a scant 6 months later in Flint Michigan. After a rocky start of extremely low sales and lack-luster performance, the Corvette soon began to come into it's own, transforming into the consummate American sports car; an innovative design with blistering performance and sleek styling. And so began one of the most successful and longest running car models in history.
