In 1952, GM designer Harley Earl, created a concept car called the Corvette. The Corvette was a stylish two-seat convertible with a bright polo white body, red leather interior, black canvas top and 15" whitewall tires. Power was provided by a Chevrolet "blue flame" six-cylinder engine with three carburetors and twin exhausts mated with a 2-speed powerglide automatic gearbox. Only 300 handmade Corvettes were built in 1953 with a sticker price of US$3,498. Highly detailed 1:18 scale diecast model.
