In 1953 the Corvette debuted in the Motorama display at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. Conceived by the legendary Harley J. Earl, it was a two-seat convertible built by General Motors aimed at capturing the small car market from manufacturers such as Jaguar and MG. With its trim lines, folding top and side curtains, the Corvette had the features of a true sports car. This represented the first attempt by an American automobile manufacturer to produce cars with a fiberglass body instead of steel components and panels. The development work behind the car would assure the Corvette would eventually become America's premier sports car. .
