There are more than a few high dollar collectables.

The C1 and C2 era models are the most valuable. Any that are big block and fuel injected models are exptremely valuable and rare.

The 63 split window with a 427 fuel injected is one of the top money cars.

Any of the 53's are valuable





Total Production = 300 Roadsters

What year models are in the C1 and C2? What years come with big block and fuel injected? I know I should find one that all the numbers match? Any other suggestions to look for?
Expert:  Chevy man replied 10 years ago.

C1 is 53 to 62

C2 is 63 to 67

C3 is 68 to 82

C4 is 83 to 96

C5 is 97 to 04

C6 is 05 and up


The big blocks (427) were available from 63 on, many years before fuel injection came into the main stream.

If your planning on investing in a Corvette I suggest to do a lot of homework. The are hundreds of details that can change the value dramatically.

There are a number of publications that act as bibles concerning corvette originality and value.

Here is just one of many reference books that are invaluable when shopping for the right car.
