- The first Corvette was made in 1953.
- It was named after a small, maneuverable warship of the same name.
- The original front emblem and horn button were designed to show a checkered flag crossed with an American flag. The design was changed when it was discovered that using an American flag on a commercial product is illegal.
- Today, all Corvettes are assembled in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
- As of 2009, there were approximately 750,000 Corvettes of all model years registered in the United States.
