The CHEVROLET CORVETTE C1 designed by Harvey Earl, is one of the first generation of Corvette sports cars produced by Chevrolet from 1953 through 1962 for which the 1961, illustrated here, was the last year of contrasting paint colours in cove areas and the first of the four round tail light tradition. It is commonly referred to as the "solid-axle" generation. It is known to have been rushed into production for its debut model year to capitalise on the enthusiastic public reaction from the concept vehicle, but expectations for the new model were largely unfulfilled. Long known as "America's sports car," it actually holds the title for the longest-running continuously produced passenger car! (drawn 9May'20)
