The last great car body in history
The last major American automobile body, the one that started a new age of mass production and mass consumption, has finally been put to rest.
The Chevrolet Corvette, once America’s most successful car, is now in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. Its final resting place was the Smithsonian in 1915, when it was the last major automobile body to be sold.
The Corvette, which had a 1.4-liter V8 engine, was designed by the legendary General Motors engineer Robert M. Clark.
The engine, a twin-cam engine, produced 471 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
It was designed to take a beating and withstand it.
The first car to have the engine, the first production Corvette, was the 1909 Ford Model A. Clark’s design was groundbreaking.
It also put the Corvette on the map as a car with a purpose.
A man who made a car that would change the face of the automotive industry and the automotive world forever is no longer in the museum.
This year, the Smithsonian will hold a memorial service for the Corvette.
Car-enthusiast and writer Robert C. Martin will be the keynote speaker.
“In the days before automobiles, people looked to their cars as a source of entertainment and a source to spend money on,” Martin said.
“But in the end, cars were a source for pleasure and for transport, and for self-expression.
They weren’t for practicality.
They were a powerful force in the life of the community.”
The body of the Corvette was sold in 1928 for $1,200.
The Smithsonian will donate it to the museum, which will then auction off the parts and materials it took to build the car.
There is no way to know what the parts will fetch.
The car will probably go for less than the value of the original car.
It is expected to fetch anywhere from $10,000 to $20,000, according to the National Automobile Dealers Association.
The Smithsonian said the Corvette is the most-decorated American car in history, and that it is also the last of its kind.
It is the world’s only complete, commercially produced car that was built by a single company, and it is the only car built in a single body.
The car’s original engine was built in 1921 by the Ford Motor Company, but the company stopped production in 1934 and the Corvette began its decline.
In 2010, the Corvette Museum of Art in Michigan was renovated to show the final Corvette.
The museum has recently sold the body for $2.9 million.
