1953 Corvette Specifications
Total Production = 300 Roadsters
For its introductory year, this radically different sports car with an all fiberglass body was produced in a temporary GM facility in Flint, Michigan. This 1st generation Corvette (C1) was available in any color you wanted, as long as it was white with a red interior. Powered by the 150 hp Blue Flame Six engine backed up by a Powerglide transmission, performance was less than startling, but at a total production run of only 300 units, the 1953 is still the rarest of all model year Corvettes.
FIBERGLASS FACT: About 225 1953 Corvettes still exist today.
