The Corvette C1 was the first generation of the Corvette sports car produced by Chevrolet. It was decided that Chevrolet needed a two seater sports car to satisfy a growing market which had mainly been dominated by European imports of Jaguars, Alfa Romeos, Mercedes and MG’s. Chevrolet’s designer Harley Earl began design work and a pre-production Corvette prototype was first shown to the public in January 1953 at General Motors Motorama event in New York city. The car proved to be an instant success and went onto be Americas most popular sports car of the time. It was decided that after a decade in production a replacement car was necessary. This tough task was given to Chevrolet chief designer Bill Mitchell and stylist Larry Shinoda, to improve on a living legend. Not only did they succeed but their creation turned into a modern classic and they created the most collectible of all the Corvettes. Introduced in 1963 the new C2 “Sting Ray” sported many new styling features including pivoting hidden headlamps, new interior, suspension and engine upgrades including the 327 CU Inch – 5360cc engine.
