Baby, you're much too fast!

In stark contrast to the complexity and controversy of the all-new 2020 C8 Corvette, this 1956 Chevrolet Corvette is amazing simple and absolutely stunning. As impressive as it is to see the progression of all eight generations of the Corvette, it's hard to argue with the timeless beauty of the original C1 models. If you want to see what Prince was singing about, you can watch this little red Corvette as it crosses the GAA Classic Cars auction block on Saturday July 27.

The 1956 model year was the first major redesign for the C1 Corvette, and the new body design helped cement the Corvette as a true global sports car. This particular car is painted in the C1's iconic red and white paint job, and it has the dual top option that includes a color-matched hard top and a white soft top. Not only is this car's soft top brand new, but the entire interior has been replaced giving this Corvette a new-car feel. White wall tires and factory steel wheels with full chrome wheel covers finish off the Corvette's unique look.

Starting in 1956, Chevrolet dropped the six-cylinder engine option from the Corvette leaving only V-8 options. Although not original to the car, this car is powered by a four-barrel 327 CID V-8 that is backed by a four-speed manual gearbox. The '56 Corvette represented a huge shift in the design and performance of future Corvettes.

There is perhaps no better car to be seen cruising in than a C1 Corvette, and this beautiful example can be yours! Be sure to tune into GAA Classic Cars auction later this month where this 1956 Chevrolet Corvette will be just one of 650 classic and collector vehicles up for auction during the three-day event.
