10. 1970 Corvette LT-1: A 370-horsepower, 350-cubic-inch, small-block powerhouse. The best balanced of the C3 Corvettes. | January 08, 2013 | Barrett-Jackson Auction Company
Over the past 60 years Chevrolet has built more than 1.3 million Corvettes across six generations. Most of them have been good cars. A few of them have been lousy cars. And at least 10 Corvettes have been truly great.
Great as in a car that in the middle of the day while at work, you just think about driving it. Great as in a car that resets the standard for awesomeness among teenagers for decades. Great as in a car that is the subject of outlandish posters, intricate scale models and carefully crafted scotch decanters.
But for sanity's sake this list is restricted to regular production Corvettes. So great Corvettes like the John Greenwood road racers from the early 1970s or the C5Rs and C6Rs that have taken multiple wins at Le Mans aren't on the list. And movie cars like the right-hand-drive custom machine featured in Corvette Summer aren't here either. Surely they'll get their own lists soon.
These are the Corvettes that Chevy dealers sold to anyone who could qualify for a loan. And that's kind of a mind-boggling thought in its own right.
