First Corvettes being built in 1953 - Video

Rare home movies chronicle the first Corvettes going into production. Each one is built by hand at the GM factory in Flint, Michigan. Only 300 Corvettes were built that first year. All 1953 Corvettes were white with a red interior, all had Powerglide automatic transmissions mated to 150 HP, six cylinder engines with three carburetors and dual exhaust. Of those 300, 255 survived.
