Since its debut in 1953, the Corvette has been an integral thread in the fabric of our great nation. Now, we are just seven weeks away from the end of the seventh decade of production for America’s Sports Car. To celebrate, CorvetteBlogger will be retroactively crowning seven ‘Vettes of the Decade to remember and celebrate the incredible highs and occasional lows that America’s greatest automotive nameplate has been through before its eighth decade kicks off with the most radical transformation in the cars’ storied history.
Each decade of Corvette production (1950s, 1960’s, 1970s,…) will get a top-three Corvette countdown during that decade’s assigned week. We will be leading off with the inaugural decade of Corvette Production. It might be the shortest decade in duration but it proved quite difficult to rank as there were so many significant changes every year.
So stay tuned! Our third-place Corvette will be revealed tomorrow leading up to our “Best Corvette of the 1950s” award on Friday, and then we’ll kick off next week with a look at the best Corvettes produced during the 1960s.
