Classic Corvette Restoration Parts
Reproduction Car Parts for Your Classic Corvette
The Corvette, which is also known as the “Vette”, is a two-seater sports car manufactured by Chevrolet for over 60 years with eight different generations. From 1953 to 2019, the Corvette’s engine was in the front of the car. Since 2020, the Corvette’s engine is in the center of the car or directly between the front and back axles. With its generations labeled C1 through C8, the Corvette serves as Chevrolet's stock performance vehicle and is popular for its distinctive fiberglass or composite plastic body lines.
In 1953, when General Motors was deciding what to name their new two-door sports car, the assistant director for Chevy’s Public Relations, Myron Scott, recommended naming the “Corvette” after a small maneuverable warship. The Name was promptly approved. The first model was a convertible introduced at General Motors’ Motorama in ’53. It was a concept, initially, and was followed the second generation ten years later in 1963. The ’63 was available in two-door coupe and convertible styles. The Chevy Corvette was originally manufactured in Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, but it has been produced in Bowling Green, Kentucky since 1981.
The Chevy Corvette has become widely known as "America's Sports Car." Automotive News wrote that after 'starring' in the early 1960s television show “Route 66, the Corvette became synonymous with freedom and adventure," becoming both "the most successful concept car in history and the most popular sports car in history."
