Chevrolet Corvette Guides

The Chevrolet Corvette is known as the first all-American sports car. It was first manufactured by Chevrolet, now part of the General Motors group, in the year 1953. The Chevrolet Corvette has long been known to possess exceptional handling and severe amounts of engine power. This is what made the vehicle a sports car to reckon with in the first place.
 
 
The Chevrolet Corvette, like each and every sports cars in existence, is designed for sporting performance. It has been contrived to excel by way of acceleration, top speed, braking and maneuverability. For the Chevrolet Corvette to be able to meet and even exceed this particular kind of feat, it is a must for the vehicle to be equipped with parts that would serve it best. It is on these parts which the vehicle will ultimately rely on to be able to deliver.
 
The Chevrolet Corvette counts on a 400 horsepower, 6.0 liter aluminum block V8 engine to be able to power its coupes and convertibles. This superb mechanism is what keeps the Chevrolet Corvette moving even through any type of road condition. Together with this unparalleled contraption, other relative parts make the Chevrolet Corvette function like no other. High-speed performance as well as better grip and increased stability is the consequence of having such parts to employ.
 
 
Being equipped with parts such as spoilers, bumpers, headlights, tail lights, corner lights, fenders and fender flares allow the Chevrolet Corvette to generate unfaltering performance. This kind of dependability is what patrons have come to love about the vehicle more than anything else. With every premium part that the Chevrolet Corvette is equipped with, the vehicle has nowhere to go but forward. The Chevrolet Corvette parts that it employs allow it to be the sports car that each and every car lover would definitely dream of having.

Simple Things You Can Do to Keep Your Chevrolet Corvette Going for Miles on End

European super cars have wowed us with their over-the-edge styling and innovations inside and out. But even with their impressive roster of the classiest sports cars, America will always have that soft spot for the Vette. The Chevrolet Corvette started out with a humble six-cylinder powerhouse in the ‘50s. Through the years, it has evolved into a handsome road warrior, combining style and performance for the ultimate driving experience. If you're lucky to have a Vette sitting in your garage, whether it's the good ol' ‘50s Corvette or the Stingray, you must keep it crisp and all ready for the next road adventure. All it takes is preventive maintenance. Here are some simple maintenance regimens you can do:

  • Watch out for any hint of car trouble.

Don't wait till your Vette is already out of shape before giving it a once-over. By this time, you may have to shell out more than a few hundred dollars to have it fixed. If something seems amiss or appears strange, like unusual noises, leaks, or vibrations, don't wait any longer to check out your Vette. Take a peek into your Chevy's auto systems to assess their condition first hand. Learn the basics of auto inspection, so you can take good care of your car.

  • Give your tires the well-deserved attention.

Your tires are exposed to dirt and slush and have to do some heavy lifting for your car, be it on the rough road or the smooth pavement. And with all the hard work and its exposure to the harsh environment, they at least deserve your attention and some TLC in the end. With a gauge, you can check your tires' air pressure from time to time. Keeping the tires properly inflated could mean longer life for your tires as this prevents wear. Watch out for wear indicators for the tire tread. Also make sure that your tires are rotated and balanced. You also need to check their alignment.

  • Keep your Vette all charged up with ample amount of fluids.

Never let your Vette starve on much-needed motor oil, coolant, and fluids for transmission and power steering. Know when they need to be refilled even before they run low. With dipsticks and gauges, you can learn to check the fluid levels like a pro. Use clean, good-quality fluids to keep your Vette energized and refreshed for the drive.

  • Check your filters, spark plugs, and belts.

Clogged filters, fouled-up spark plugs, and torn belts can mess up your Vette's performance on the road and even cause some other parts to fail. Before you know it, your much-loved Chevy can no longer run smoothly. To avoid more costly repairs, follow the recommended maintenance intervals or service schedule.

  • Take time to read your vehicle manual.

Although it's not a fun read, you can learn a lot about your Vette by reading your manual. This won't turn you into an automotive pro, but this will help you understand your Chevy a little bit better, allowing you to prevent breakdowns and wear.

Chevrolet Corvette: A 50-Plus-Year Story of a Warship on the Road

In 1953, the Chevrolet division of General Motors ventured into another remarkable development that popularized America’s only true sports car, the Corvette. The said jewel, also referred to as the Vette, became the division’s competing nameplate against famous sports cars like Ferrari and Jaguar that were tearing the race circuits during the 1950s. The release was captivating—what with the limited 300 units sold and the characteristic polo white coat. A lot of facelifts have been done to the first Vettes over the years, but until now, the continuous rolling of the Kentucky assembly lines and the cars’ remaining popularity are proofs that the Chevrolet Corvette is more than a fifty-year wonder.

1953 – 1962: First generation (the solid-axle convertible)

The first models off the assembly line had the beam-axle suspension where a set of wheels was connected laterally by a single shaft. The units were only a convertible type for ten years, and the polo white exterior that was the sole option in the first release was replaced by a much-accepted Roman red in 1960. The hand-built models sported a red vinyl interior, which was a great contrast to the white coat. The Blue Flame 6 -cylinder engine, coupled with a Powerglide automatic transmission, produced a remarkable performance of 283 horsepower. But even more astonishing was the ability of the engine to yield one horsepower per cubic inch of fuel, the reason it was marketed under the one hp per cubic inch slogan. More facelifts were done within the ten years, including the removal of the tail lamp fins in 1956, the addition of hood louvers in 1958, and the redesign to a duck tail with round lights in 1961. The other options were a four-speed manual transmission, heavy-duty brakes, power windows, and a hydraulically operated power convertible top.

1963 – 1967: Second generation (the hard-top with more power)

In the five years following, buyers were torn between a convertible and a hard-topped coupe. The coupe model was dubbed as Sting Ray for its tapering rear deck. The biggest leap was the offering of a 427 cubic inch Big Block engine that made the cars the fastest models for because of their 425 horsepower. The outside changes included restyled fender vents, rectangular back-up lamps, and red taillights, while inside alterations were an air conditioning system, an AM/FM radio, headrests, and a telescopic steering wheel.

1968 – 1982: Third generation (the T-top Sharks with more fuel capacity)

The third-generation Corvettes had the T-top roof, which had removable side panels made of auto-grade safety glass. Engine power remained at 425 horsepower, but the fuel capacity was enlarged to 454 cubic inches or 7.4 liters. However, in order to make the engine compatible with low-lead fuel, the compression ratios of the engine were lowered, resulting to having 270 horsepower for the L48 engine and 330 horsepower for the LT1. Only minor changes were done to the styling: urethane-compound bumpers replaced the chrome bumpers, glass bubble rear windows were installed, and an opening rear hatch was offered on collector models.

1984 – 1996: Fourth generation (the sleek Vette with a smoother run)

Fourth-generation models were known for their sleek styling and a considerable reduction in aerodynamic drag. A 4-speed manual transmission with an automatic overdrive on the top three gears was dubbed as a 4-plus-3 transmission. Also, the models used a unique dual-throttle-body injection system called Crossfire. Other improvements were the use of the Acceleration Slip Regulation for traction control, the Computer Aided Gear Selection for more gear control for certain conditions, and a superb handling and cornering ability.

1997 – 2004: Fifth generation (the rigid car structure and curvaceous design)

Initially rated at 345 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, the models were even made powerful by increasing horsepower by five points for the same torque output. The models were available as a coupe with a fixed-roof design. The models had an improved handling and less body flex, and with the use of materials like titanium in the exhaust system and carbon fiber in the hood, they became more lightweight and performers.

2005 – present: Sixth generation (the fuel-saving car with good power and design)

This generation included several body and engine alterations for increased performance and style. The units were sleeker, making them faster. Also, they had a six-liter engine that could yield 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque at 6000-rpm. These models had a steel frame instead of aluminum, had a better suspension, a dry-sump oil system, and carbon fiber front fenders.
