Some history behind the different Corvette colors

Some history behind the different Corvette colors
Since 1952 when the Corvette was released GM always tried to amaze people with the styling, speed, and overall effect of the Corvette. A Corvette is not a car you need; it is a car that you desire to own. Most people have a favorite body style or group of years that they prefer to collect.

Since day one Corvette was all about flash with colors like Polo White with a bright red interior, too Pennant Blue or Sportsman Red, in 1953 and 1954. 1955 continued with the flash with colors like Corvette Copper, Harvest Gold, and Gypsy Red.
