What was the first Corvette with a V8 engine?

In 1955, a V8 engine was put into a Chevrolet Corvette for the first time.

The first Corvette came out in 1953 with a six-cylinder engine. For the 1955 model year, Chevrolet added a V8 engine as an option for the sports car.

This small-block V8 engine was a big step up from the six-cylinder engine.

It had more power and a higher top speed, and Corvette buyers quickly made it their engine of choice.

1955 was also the first year that a manual transmission was an option for the Corvette.

This, along with the new V8 engine, made the Corvette a real performance car.

The Corvette has changed over the years, but the V8 engine is still an important part of the car's history and performance.
