The first 300 Corvettes were delivered only to GM executives and high-profile celebrities, all finished in Polo White with red interiors and black soft tops. Chevrolet’s choice of a modified Blue Flame Six engine and 2-speed Powerglide transmission proved a disappointment to die-hard enthusiasts, but the rakishly styled new American sports car rendered in revolutionary fiberglass laid the foundation for what has become a distinctly American cultural icon.
