Posted: Updated:

Just 125 of the first 300 corvettes are still around. The ones that are have been lovingly restored by their owners.

It was on this day in 1953 workers at a Chevrolet plant in Flint, Michigan assembled the first corvette.

A two-seater sports car went on to become an American icon.
