Electric Windows, Classic Radio, 17'''' Alloy wheels, Hard Top, Folding Roof, 4 Speed Gearbox, Power Assisted Steering, LHD, ULEZ COMPLIANT, Front Disc Brakes, Rear Disc Brakes, Dual Circuit Brakes Harley Earl who was head of GM's Styling Section was an avid fan of sports cars and he recognised that Gi's returning after serving overseas in the years following World War II were bringing home MG's, Jaguars and Alfa Romeo's in large numbers and Nash Motors also began selling an expensive two-seat sports car, the Nash-Healey that was made in partnership with the Italian designer Pininfarina and British auto engineer Donald Healey, but there were few moderate-priced models, so Earl convinced GM that they needed to build an all-American two-seat sports car to compete with these imported cars. His Special Projects crew began working on the new car in late 1951 and the new Chevrolet Corvette was first shown at the GM Motorama display at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City on the 17th January 1953. The new 2-Seater convertible was hand-built by General Motors at their factory in Flint, Michigan and was aimed at capturing the small sports car market from the European manufacturers. It was named the Corvette after a small class of naval ships and had a lightweight fibreglass body mounted on a steel chassis with a Chevrolet 235 cubic inch 'Blue Flame Special' 6 cylinder engine, 2 Speed Auto gearbox and was originally offered for sale @ $3,498.

They expected 10,000 Corvettes to be built and sold, however only 3,640 vehicles were made and only about 600 of them were sold and they finally able to unload the rest of them in 1955 although it proved to be very difficult and consequently the base price of the 1954 corvette was over $500 less than then 1953 model at $2,774.00. 1955 could have been the year that Chevrolet stop producing the Corvette, as it was plagued by the slow-selling 1954 version so apart from reducing the price, GM decided to insert a new 265 cubic inch V8 engine into the car. This transformed the Corvette into a true sports car bringing the 0-100mph time down to 24 seconds, just in time to do battle with Ford's Thunderbird. By offering bigger engines, better handling, options, and new styling, sales of the Corvette began to increase and the 1956 car had
