when first Corvette car was rolled out in 1953, they were far from fully evolved. This Corvette car was headed for extension just quickly as it was also having six cylinder engine and two speed automatic transmission could carry it. But then Corvette installed its first small block up front.
Thusly and successfully mutated, the Corvette’s genetic code has remained stable for 60 years. With few exceptions, the venerable Vette has always been a powerful V-8 plastic-wrapped with only whatever additional engineering was necessary.
