Corvettes are sports cars manufactured by General Motors, a division of Chevrolet. The Corvette is a 2-door vehicle that has been in production since 1953 and is made in two models: convertible and coupe. Knowing how to read a Corvette’s VIN, or Vehicle Identification Number, can be helpful in many areas. For instance, a VIN number will let you know where a Corvette was assembled, its model, series, assembly plant, engine type and body style. You can also use a Corvette’s VIN number to determine its history.
