Big Changes for 1958
For 1958, Chevrolet updated America’s sports car with four headlights and louvers in the hood. This example is one of four early Corvettes built for the 1958 model year, produced in August of 1957 as the Pilot Cars. Car number 00001 was primarily a test vehicle that was eventually cut apart by GM for body analysis. The vehicle on display at the museum is car #00002 which was used in all of GM’s promotional materials and advertising for the 1958 Corvette.
