Jay Leno and Leo Wellburn Vice President of GM Design take you on a tour of Vintage Corvettes, and discuss the changes in specifications as they go.
They start with the first Corvette made in 1953 with the triple carb Blue Flame 6 motor and 2 speed auto which had a dealer price tag of around $3000. Just image what an investment if had the dollars and foresight to buy and store 6 or more of these. Wow. Then Jay and Leo move on and spend some time with other Corvettes from the 50’s and 60’s.
Where I live there are several Corvettes from the early to late 50’s and is good to see them attracting lots attention whenever out for a run.
Any model Corvette right up to the latest model is either a true classic, or is a classic in waiting as you can guarantee in 20 years time todays models will be as collectible as yesteryear models are today.
