Corvette: The American Dream Machine

In the early '50s, it was only a designer's dream. Today the Corvette stands alone as America's dream

car -- a testament to its unmistakable charisma and

the excitement it inspires. Unique styling, powerful performance and an undeniable panache have made Corvette one of the most celebrated sports cars in the world.

In 1953, Corvette produced 300 new lightweight fiberglass roadsters. A handful went to project engineers, General Motors managers, and a select group of movie

stars and celebrities. With a two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission, Blue Flame six-cylinder engine,

and gleaming Polo White exterior, the Corvette began its drive into the heart of America.

Designers freshened up the 'Vette in 1956 by adding a removable hardtop and the famous Corvette "coves." The sculptured body enhanced its sporty look, and a

standard 210-horsepower Chevy V8 engine solidified

Corvette's reputation as a production race car.

In 1963, Corvette hit the road with an eye-catching new look -- the Sting Ray coupe. An instant success, the now-classic Sting Ray featured concealed headlamps

and a unique split rear window. The split window would only be offered in 1963, making this model among the most prized Corvettes ever built.

Restyled inside and out for 1968, this 'Vette sported a lean and hungry shape, creating a sense of motion even when standing still. And for the first time, Corvette offered removable roof panels.

For its 25th anniversary, the 1978 Corvette paced the 62nd Annual Indianapolis 500 and received a new fastback roofline with a wide expanse of glass that wrapped around the sides.
