On June 28, 1953, workers at a Chevrolet plant in Flint, Michigan, assembled the first Corvette. The first completed production car rolled off the assembly line two days later, The cars were hand-built and techniques evolved during the production cycle, so that each 1953 Corvette is slightly different. All 1953 models had Polo White exteriors, red interiors, and black canvas soft tops. Over two-hundred 1953 Corvettes are known to exist today.
