The Chevy Corvette is a super sports car from the stables of GM. The car was introduced in 1953 as a convertible and was powered by a Chevy C1 engine. The car boasted an independent rear suspension and a solid axle. The sports version of the car was powered by a 4.34 liter V8 motor. The inline-six blue flame engine was first installed in the Chevy Sting Ray and was carried forward to the Corvette. The corvette also featured a 2 speed power glide automatic transmission.
The 1958 Corvette had the 4.5 liter turbo charged V8 as standard in all the models, and this car also received a major facelift. The 1959 model was powered by a small block engine, which offered the maximum torque per cc. The car came with a new 5 speed manual transmission and a heavy duty suspension and brakes. Used 4.5 liter V8 engines are for sale in many workshops dealing in newer vehicles.
The second generation Corvette was known as the Sting Ray and was introduced in 1963. This model was under production till 1969 and was powered by a 6.49 liter V8. This motor was known as the big block for its sheer size and massive output and the exterior received many cosmetic changes. This car had advanced drive train features like an independent ignition system, a Rochester ignition system and an independent frontal suspension. The Corvette competes directly with the Pontiac GTO, which is powered by a 308 V8. The Sting Ray was also the first Chevy to sport an integrated disk braking system.
