The Corvette is an American icon and can be said to be one of the most famous sports cars ever created. Introduced to the world in 1953 with a fiberglass body and mechanicals similar to the rest of the Chevrolet line; a straight six cylinder overhead valve engine with triple side draft carburetors. A sleek two seater unlike anyone had experienced before for a production car. It was an instant hit and today the Corvette is even more popular than ever. The C2 Corvette, dubbed the Stingray, is considered by many to be the most successful era for the Corvette and certainly one of the most sought after versions of the legendary American sports cars by collectors today.
