About: The 1st Chevrolet Corvette rolled off production line on June 30, 1953, at the GM plant in Flint, Michigan. Only 300 Corvettes were built that year (each of them by hand), making this the rarest Corvette. The first all-American sports car built by an American car manufacturer; each fiberglass-bodied two-seater was white with a red interior & black canvas top.
