FIRST CORVETTE OFF THE ASSEMBLY LINE

Corvette: A Legacy - Chapter Two: Steps and Stumbles #BlogPost


On June 28, 1953, workers at a Chevrolet plant in Flint, Michigan, assembled the first Corvette, a two-seater sports car that would
become an American icon. The first completed production car
rolled off the assembly line two days later, one of just 300
Corvettes made that year.

The idea for the Corvette originated with General Motors’ designer
Harley J. Earl, who in 1951 began developing plans for a low-cost American sports car that could compete with Europe’s MGs,
Jaguars and Ferraris. The project was eventually code-named
“Opel.”
