Historical

The C1 Corvette was produced for nine years when it was replaced by the second-generation Corvette, or C2, in 1962. Penned by legendary automobile designer Harley Earl, the Chevrolet Corvette drew inspiration from many sources. Earl wanted to create a true American sports car and he noticed all the European sports cars that American GIs were bringing home after their service in World War II. Another source of inspiration was the Nash-Healey, a two-seater sports car from Nash Motors. Earl and his team created "Project Opel" in the early 1950s, which eventually became the original Corvette we know today.

In popular culture, the Corvette was featured on the hit television show "Route 66." The show ran for four seasons on CBS and followed the adventures of two men, Tod Stiles and Buz Murdock, traveling across the United States in their Chevrolet Corvette. A 1960 model Corvette was the first car to be used in the series, and the characters would use a Vette from a new model year with each new season. When the series ended in 1964, the characters drove a "Saddle Tan" colored C2 Corvette.

Several classic Corvette styling cues were changed with the 1961 model year. In addition to new taillights, this year marked the end of whitewall tires and the word "Corvette" was spelled out on the nose of the car instead of the round emblem found on previous cars. The two-tone paint in the car's cove area has been eliminated, as have the chrome "teeth" on the grille in favor of a mesh above the radiator opening. The rear of the car was modified to a new "boat tail" design, and engine power was increased to 315 horsepower for the more powerful fuel-injected V8 engine.

The 1962 Corvette was the last model year to use a solid rear axle. Solid axles had been a feature of the Corvette since the original car in 1953. A new engine was another major update for the Corvette: the V8's displacement was increased to 5.4 liters and horsepower increased up to 'to a maximum of 360 horsepower.

Another element of the Corvette that changed was the exposed headlights. This styling element disappeared for decades, while pop-up headlights became standard until 2005, when the C5 model Corvette brought them back.

1962 also saw the largest Corvette production in the car's history to that date, with over 14,500 cars. The price of the car also reached a new high with a base sticker of $4,038 at the time….
