In 1953, a total of 300 Corvettes were produced. The first Corvette came off the assembly line on June 30, 1953. The first two were destroyed as they were engineering test cars. This is still the rarest of all model year production Corvettes. It is estimated that less than two hundred 1953 Corvettes still exist.
Of those cars, 300 were all convertibles since that was the only body style in 1953.
