The Chevrolet Corvette (C1) is the first generation of Chevrolets sports car division of General Motors and was introduced late in the 1953 model year and produced through 1962. It is often known as the ”solid-axle” generation, as the independent rear suspension did not appear until the 1963 Sting Ray. There was no doubt Chevrolet was in the sports car business with the release of the 1956 model. It featured a new body that has turned heads since its inception and cannot be compared to many of that generation. The volume was 3,167, a low number by any contemporary standard and still less than 1954’s 3,640, meaning this was the third lowest-volume model in Corvette history.
