[GALLERY] Straight Axle Saturday! (51 Corvette Photos)


A common problem among us CorvetteBloggers is that obsession and appreciation we have for all Corvettes. As I’ve been writing about C1 Corvettes lately, I figure now is a great time to roll off a Straight Axle Saturday photo gallery featuring the most classic generation of the plastic fantastic!

We picked out 51 random Corvette images featuring cars built from 1953-1962. Before they were called C1s, they were known as the straight axles by the old school owners and collectors who used the term to differentiate the 1st generation Corvettes from the Midyears (with their independent rear suspensions) that followed.

Of course, if you do have a straight axle and want to see it posted here, feel free to send it [email protected]. We don’t do these Straight Axle Saturday posts too often, but maybe if more were interested, we could schedule them a little more frequently.

Do you have a favorite Corvette photo from this week’s gallery? Let us know in the comments section below or hit us up on Twitter and Facebook.

  1. Favorites are #8 and #22. Non-pictured favorite from my youth was always a ’62 Honduras Maroon / Black/ Black with a 327CI, 340HP. Thanks for offering up the C-1’s on occasion… they were soooooo much fun to drive!!

  2. I particularly like #34 because it has a later model drivetrain and suspension with a modified C1 body.My first Corvette experience was a solid white 1960 with a black interior and a 283″ 4-speed.Driving that car on a deserted back road was such a huge adrenaline rush,I’ll never forget!
