GM's 2-Seater made its dramatic and successful debut at the 1953 Motorama due to its eye-catching design and innovative construction. From those first 300 Polo White, hand-built beatuies of '53 evolved the powerful, 430 horsepower, '67 Stingray, then the shark-like body style of the '82 Stinger and finally the current bold C5 model. Throughout the years, Corvette styling and performance have constantly been improved and refined until reaching its current status as an automotive icon. Four Decades of unprecedented success have established the Corvette as America's preeminent sports car. The 45th Anniversary set is a tribute to the impact and longevity of this fiberglass fantasy car.
