The display, which runs through the end of the year, will explore Corvette’s design evolution since the first polo white with red interior C1 rolled off the assembly line in June 1953.

The Aug. 9-11 opening weekend will kick off with a special showing of three of the most important concept cars in Corvette’s history — the 1959 Stingray, 1961 Mako Shark and 1965 Manta Ray — before they head south to participate at the Pebble Beach Concours.

Chevy product displays on the plaza and the arrival of the “500 Corvettes” enthusiast group, which takes over Haub Family Field on Aug. 9, will also highlight the three-day grand opening.

Whether you're a collector or merely curious, prepare to be blown away by the unforgettable 60th anniversary of this automotive icon-only at America's Car Museum.
