While the jump to a V-8 in the 1950s had proved pivotal to the Corvette’s ultimate success and sustainability, nobody could have imagined the impact that the introduction of the 327 V-8 would have on the last of the C1 Corvettes.

This new ‘Vette, when equipped with a four-speed and fuel injection, could regularly run the quarter-mile in under fifteen (15) seconds and achieve speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour while doing so.
