The tale of the Chevrolet Corvette begins with a road race at Watkins Glen in 1951. It was there that Harley Earl, then the Vice President of Design at General Motors, got the inspiration to create a two-seater sports car. Soon after, a fiberglass prototype was created, prompting Chevrolet Division to produce a marketable model for the public. Thus, the classic automobile we know and love today was born.

To mark the 70th anniversary of the Corvette, the folks at Watkins Glen thought it wise to launch a promotional graphic for their renowned yearly event.

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the iconic Corvette, Watkins Glen created a promotional graphic that ultimately evolved into a vintage-inspired license plate. The final design, consisting of colors taken from the 1953 Corvette, is the work of renowned artist Scott Teeters.

Artfully crafted, this collector’s license plate honors the initial model and all of its following generations that have inspired us throughout the past 70 years; this piece uniquely represents this remarkable car.

The prototype was the star at GM Motorama.
