Chevy Corvette: The Sports Car That Transcends Time

Its a given that the Chevrolet Corvette is one of the most iconic sports cars in automotive history since its debut more than a half a century ago. Although GM was an auto-industry super power in the 1950s, they were still lacking a proper sports car. GM masterminds Harley J. Earl and Robert F. McLean put their heads together to create the very first Corvette, built out of fiberglass and achieving a 53/47 front-to-rear weight distribution. The 1953 Chevrolet Corvette was exhibited at that years New York Auto Show and put into production soon after.

The Chevrolet Corvette has won over plenty of Wheeling, IL area drivers, and luckily for them, Bill Stasek Chevrolet, the Midwests largest Corvette dealer, has the Corvette Stingray model theyve been searching for.
