1953 EX-122 Concept Car

You can’t talk Corvettes without talking about the car that started it all. Based on Harley Earl’s Project Opel plaster model, the EX52 / 122 was the original concept car that inspired the nation and left countless consumers wanting a Corvette to call their own. This Corvette concept was introduced at GM’s Motorama in January 1953. It was so well received that GM moved the car from prototype to production in just six months’ time!
