C1 Corvette, the first generation of Corvettes that were built from 1953 to 1962. Corvettes for sale, Original Corvettes, Restored Corvettes, and Drag Racing Corvettes are found in my C1 Corvettes archive section. The first generation of Corvettes was an essential generation as it was during this time period that General Motors approved the continued production of the Chevrolet Corvette. The C1 Corvettes brought us dual quad intakes, dual quad carbs, and fuel injection systems which were all used as fuel delivery systems on top of the new Chevrolet Small Block V8 engine which was released in the 1955 model year. Handling and Big Brake packages were developed to keep this new found power under control, and even an extra capacity gas tank was developed for those enthusiasts who needed more fuel from start to finish. This first generation of Corvettes not only competed in Sports Car Races here in the United States, but also over seas. In 1960, there was an official team three Corvettes plus an independent team that raced in the 24 Hours of LeMans.

The magazine’s October 1962 […]
