Convertible
The first Corvette was a GM Motorama 'Dream Car' unveiled at the 1953 New York Auto Show. It reached limited production later that year with just 300 1953 Corvettes built, all 'Polo White' with red interiors, powered by a 235 cubic-inch 'Blue Flame' six through a two-speed Powerglide automatic. Chevrolet followed with 3,640 Corvettes, available in red, white, blue or black, for 1954.

Then for 1955, thanks largely to Belgian-born engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov, who joined GM in 1953 and would later be Corvette's chief engineer, a 265 CID 'small block' V8 and a three-speed manual transmission became available. But just 700 1955 Corvettes were built while Chevy dealers struggled to sell left-over 1954s.

Corvette got new styling and more improvements for 1956, including a boost in the V8's displacement and output to 283 CID and 283 horsepower - one of the first volume engines to achieve one pony per cubic inch - plus optional power windows and a power top. Optional heavy duty brakes and suspension came for 1957, then fuel injection and a four-speed manual gearbox later that year. Production increased to 3,467 1956 models and 6,339 1957s.

Then it was freshened for 1958, with a longer front end, quad headlamps, faux hood louvers, twin chrome trunk strips and a new steering wheel and instrument panel, and production increased to 9,168. This fuel-injected NCRS 'top-flight' example has power windows and a power top.
