An American -made sports car. The first version debuted in 1953 and the current version is referred to as the "sixth-generation" Corvette (or C-6). All Corvettes have sported a fiberglass body. Corvettes from 1967 and back generally command premium prices, especially if the car has the original motor and low mileage, and especially if it has an unusual combination of options, particularly those related to racing (large gas tank, HD brakes, or similar optional equipment, often referred to as RPO). In addition to having fiberglass bodies, all Corvettes made have been 2-seaters. Until 1963, all Corvettes were roadsters (convertibles) and from 1963 to 2004, all Corvettes had retractable, or hidden, headlights. Since 1961, all Corvettes have sported an arrangement of four round tail lights, which has become one of the de facto Corvette symbols.
