Experimental One-Offs
Over the years, GM engineers created a number of unique one-of-a-kind vehicles connected to Corvette, many of which are on display at the Corvette Museum. One of the more interesting examples is this Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle, or CERV1. After horrific tragedies at Le Mans and closer to home in NASCAR racing, factory-sponsored racing ceased during the late 1950s and early 1960s. During that time, this vehicle was pitched as a research tool and served as a bridge between the Corvette SS and upcoming production 1963 Corvette Stingray.
