Thirty-eight years later many have forgotten about the Chevrolet Corvette being produced at the GM Chevrolet assembly plant that was located in St Louis, MO. The first three-hundred of Chevrolet’s sports cars were built in a plant at Flint, MI in 1953, the following year production was moved to Missouri. Between 1954 and 1981 when Corvette production was moved to a renovated Chrysler plant in Bowling Green, KY, seven-hundred thousand of the two-seaters were assembled in St Louis.
Today’s featured GM Photographic image contains a view of fifty 1957 Corvettes lined up for a publicity photo in a storage lot at the St Louis plant. In the background are Chevrolet passenger cars and trucks which were also assembled at the facility.
