Foremost, congratulations to General Motors! They celebrated their 100th birthday last month. In honor of their celebration, the auto manufacturer named off its top ten favorite vehicles since the company’s very beginnings.
Not surprisingly, the 1953 Chevrolet Corvette made the list!
The very first 1953 Corvette came off the production lines in Flint, Michigan. The entire Corvette body was hand built and constructed out of fiberglass. Though it was an attractive vehicle, its high costs and low performance ratings deemed the car unwanted. During the first year of its production, only 183 Corvettes were sold out of a total of 300 built.
Now, the 1953 Corvette was only one on the list of ten of GM’s favorites. The overall listing does not follow a ranking, as it is just arranged chronologically from latest to earliest in production year.
We want your opinions! Did one of your favorite GM vehicles not make the list? Are these cars worthy of winning the top 10 status? Check out the entire list after the break.
