    Why Did Chevrolet
    Drastically Reduce
    Its Production of
    Corvettes in 1955?


    Answer: Three Main Reasons:

    1. The Corvette did not catch on as a sports car after the first two production runs (1953 & 1954)

    2. Chevrolet officials discovered that Ford was releasing a new sports car of their own in 1955 which might cut into Corvette sales (the T-Bird)

    3. Chevrolet was installing a new experimental engine into Corvettes (the V-8)

    Basically Chevrolet was unsure that Corvette was going to make it as an American sports car

    Retail Price of
    the 1955

    However the original price of the 1953 was almost $3,500 - about 20% less than the year the first Corvette was introduced.
    In fact, Corvettes never hit the $4,000 price tag until 1962 when they sold for a whopping $4,038!

    When Was The
    First V-8 Engine Introduced?
