It's not just a prototype.

The Chevrolet Corvette C1 is among our favorite vintage cars together with a few other names.

Of course, times have changed dramatically and the automotive design is no longer so recognizable. But there’s still some hope.

Clear Garage Space For An Ultra-Rare 1953 Chevy Corvette Barn Find

  Clear Garage Space For An Ultra-Rare 1953 Chevy Corvette Barn Find Now restored to former glory and being offered by Corvette Heroes, this is one of 36 cars discovered in the most epic Corvette barn find of all time. Some may recall the epic barn find involving 36 Corvettes that were discovered sitting under decades of dust, each a different model year from 1953 to 1989. These epic Corvettes were once owned by renowned pop artist Peter Max who was going to use the cars as canvases to use for a series of paintings, but the project was never started so the cars have been sitting in various parking garages in New York City since 1989 collecting decades of dust and debris.

Actually the duct temp is much better than the chart. Score one for GM engineering (wonder if the same guys did the column lock). I had a problem with the mirror separating from the visor and I tried a couple of things before I got one that worked.

The first automotive headlights were actually lanterns that burned acetylene or oil. For C 1 -C3 Corvettes , upgrading headlights is more complicated.

Chinese company Songsan has just presented its newest addition to the model range. It’s the car you’ll see in the gallery below or - if we have to be short - a modern-day knockoff of the original Corvette C1. Not everything is 100-percent identical but just take a look at the photos - everything you love about the C1 is there albeit in a slightly modified form.

The best part? As Carscoops reports, the automaker is not ashamed of the close visual relation between the C1 and the so-called SS Dolphin. On its official site, the manufacturer shows Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, George Clooney, and other celebrities driving one of America’s greatest sports cars.

    Plug the connector back in, install the flasher and test it. If it works, put the car back together and you're done. Any serious C5 Do-It-Yourself owner should invest in the Corvette Service Manual of the appropriate model year.

The obvious connection between the SS Dolphin and the original Corvette is just visual though. Under the stylish sheet, there’s a 1.5-liter plug-in hybrid powertrain reportedly sourced from Build Your Dreams (BYD), one of China’s largest automakers. According to information from Autohome, there’s a 16-kWh battery pack supplying electric energy for up to 56-62 miles (90-100 kilometers) between two charges. The claimed 0 to 62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) acceleration time is impressive - 4.9 seconds.
