Chevrolet Corvette History

At the Motorama exhibition in the US in 1953, visitors were interested in an unusual car for their country, which subsequently became the first American sports car. The name of that car is Chevrolet Corvette. The stylish roadster with a fiberglass body attracted the curious appearance created by the legendary designer Harley Earl. Earl itself, when creating these forms, was inspired by European cars, which he had seen a lot while traveling around the world. And if the design feels so much, then a 3.8-liter engine with a capacity of 150 liters. S., working in pairs with a two-stage "automatic machine", appeared to consumers too boring. Exactly modest technical characteristics explain the fact that at the beginning of sales, cars slowly departed from car dealerships, which in turn almost did not cross the entire project.

 

The lifeblood for the "corvette" was the replacement in 1955 of an old power unit on a V8 volume of 4.3 liters, giving 195 liters. with. The new carburetor, coupled with three-speed mechanics, fell in love with buyers, and sales finally went downhill. In a couple of years the "engine" became injector, its volume grew by 0.3 liters, and the MOTC added another speed. Around the same time a restyling was carried out that changed the shape of the rear wings, and a year later, in 1958, the front part of the car, which received double headlamps, was corrected.

 

Over the years, the engines of the "corvette" became more and more powerful, and in 1962 it was already possible to purchase a 360-strong version with a 5.4-liter monster under the hood. Altogether about 70,000 Chevrolet Corvette C1 came from the conveyor. The drive on the car, by the way, was rear, and, running ahead, I would say that this trait was characteristic for all corvettes of all generations.
