Article contributed by Dave Salvatore / Kerbeck Corvette

At the end of every production year, the Bowling Green Assembly Plant posts a list of “Options Penetration” showing how many of each type of Corvette, color and options were built so that new Corvette owners could try to figure out how rare their car may be.

1963 Fuelie Corvette Barn Car Discovered in an Abandoned Auto Garage

Fifty years ago, the new 1963 Corvette Sting Rays were rolling off the assembly line at the Corvette plant in St. Louis. One of those Corvettes was VIN #10863 which was a Riverside Red 360 hp Fuel Injected Corvette Roadster.

According to the story, the Corvette stayed in town where it was sold by Big Four Chevrolet in St. Louis to man who owned an auto repair business in neighboring East St.Louis, IL. The new owner ordered the Corvette while his wife was pregnant and it arrived for delivery just about the same time she gave birth to twins.

[VIDEO] GM Design Director Tom Peters Defends the 2014 Corvette Stingray's Tail Lights

Editor’s note: We posted this video from our new CorvetteVideos.TV website onto our Facebook page Saturday night. The video generated a lot of comments about the direction of the new Corvettes rear end design so we wanted to share it with our non-facebook friends as well.


For months now, the Internet has been abuzz over the rear end of the seventh-generation Corvette.

Some old-timers have made no secret that they don’t care much for the move away from the traditional round tail lamps that have been on the Corvette since 1963 (though some C4s had rectangular lights and the C5 had ovals).

Tom Peters, design director for the 2014 Corvette Stingray, recently took a few moments to talk with Autoweek to explain his team’s thinking as they designed the rear of the car.

[PICS] Experimental 1964 Rear Engine Corvette Prototype XP-819 Shows Its Stuff at Amelia Island

In 1964, Chevy engineers imagined hanging an aluminium Corvette engine off the back of the frame as part of an engineering study on safety and crash zones. Zora wasn’t really on board with the project until Larry Shinoda penned a design that many claim was the genesis for the C3 Corvette. The result was XP-819, a radical looking rear wheel drive prototype.

The Corvette was famously wrecked on the GM proving grounds after a tire test and while it was put back together, Chevy pretty much washed it hands of XP-819 after the accident and moved on in developing several other notable rear-engine prototypes.
