Item # 620456
July 1, 1953
DETROIT NEWS, Michigan, July 1, 1953
* Corvette starts production
* In a Detroit newspaper (historic)
Page 53 has a two line, two column headline: "Plastic Corvette Begins To Roll" & above this head in smaller type: "Production Line Starts". The report begins: "Chevrolet's first production model Corvette, a sports with a plastic laminated fiber glass body, rolled off the company's Flint assembly line Tuesday..." & more. The report contains details about production, plus mention that the list price for a new Corvette was $3250.
Included is a two column photo of the first production model Corvette rolling off the assembly line at the Flint facility. Terrific to have this notable report in a Detroit newspaper.
Complete in 72 pages, nice condition.
