60 Years of Corvette

60 Years of Corvette
ELIZABETH CITY, NC- Over the weekend, Chevrolet celebrated an exciting milestone as the automaker recognized 60 years of the Corvette! One of the world's most iconic sports cars, the Chevy Corvette, celebrated it's 60th anniversary on June 30th!

Production of the first Corvette began on June 30, 1953, at Chevrolet's Flint, Michigan plant. Over the past six generations, the automaker has produced 1.56 million vehicles which according to Chevy, makes the Corvette "the world's longest-running, continuously produced passenger car." Though production started at the Flint plant, it has since moved twice, first to the St. Louis, Missouri plant and then to the Bowling Green, Kentucky plant in 1981 where the Corvette celebrated 60 years this weekend.

As Chevy's Vice President of Marketing, Chris Perry, stated, "During the past six decades, the Corvette has been woven into the fabric of American culture, as the sports car of choice for movie stars, musicians, and astronauts. The very best Corvettes represent the state-of-the-art for their eras in terms of design, technology, and performance."

If you've got the need for speed and innovation, you can get your hands on the 2014 Corvette Stingray at our Rocky Mount Area Chevrolet Dealership later this year when the seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette is expected to hit dealerships. Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations at 1005 W. Ehringhaus St, Elizabeth City, NC, 27909 or 1001 Halstead Blvd Elizabeth City, NC 27909.
