The 1953 Chevrolet Corvette was the first of its kind for GM in many ways, from the 2-seat sports car platform to the fiberglass body shell.    The Corvette has come a long way since then, but the formula remains consistent today.   This is one of the 300 built that year, launching the longest running passenger car brand in history.    From The Brothers Collection.
