For the Woodward Dream Cruise, Chevy created the Corvette Time Line to honor the significant milestones during Corvette’s 60 years of production. Here is a video of Corvette’s Product Marketing Manager Harlan Charles on Woodward talking about the milestones that occurred during Corvette’s first generation – 1953 to 1962.
From its humble beginnings in 1953 with the straight 6 Blue Flame engine to dominating the established foreign brands in competition at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, there’s a lot of history that occurred in the early years that set Corvette on its path to being the world class sports car that we revere today. As we wait for the unveiling of the C7 Corvette, this series of tribute videos will help set the stage for the future generation as well.
