1967 Chevrolet Corvette

For over 50 years, the Corvette has been America's sports car, offering both performance and reliability through six generations of production.
The brainchild of GM designer Harley Earl, the Corvette was introduced to rave reviews in 1953, and over the years, through the assistance of Zora Arkus-Duntov, became a true performer, dropping the standard "Blue Flame" 6-cylinder for the first small-block V8 in 1955, adding fuel injection in 1957, and introducing the big-block 396-ci V8 in 1965.

Through the solid-axle cars, the mid-years, and the Mako-Shark II-inspired third-generation cars, collector interest has always remained high, with buyers willing to pay up for the best, most original examples.
