The History of the Chevy Corvette 1953 - 2013
What happened to 1983 Corvett?
What happened was that the change from the previous-generation Corvette to
the new one was so radical that it took a while to get the Bowling Green

them survives today. Instead, in March of '83, Chevrolet began selling the
1984 Corvette and it was the most dramatically different Corvette since the
'63 Sting Ray.
