The original 1953 Corvettes inconveniently had their instruments to the right of the steering wheel, but in 1958 they were moved in front of the driver. Interior colors included red, black, and turquoise; options ranged from power windows to courtesy lights. But it was all about the car’s performance, and in 1959 Chevy touted the Corvette as “a polished instrument strictly designed for driving pleasure.”
