Hot Wheels ’11 Corvette Grand Sport [FKT57]

The Chevrolet Corvette, colloquially known as the ‘Vette, is a two-door, two-passenger sports car manufactured and marketed by Chevrolet across more than 60 years of production and eight design generations. From 1953 to 2019, it was front-engined, and since 2020, it is mid-engined. With its generations noted sequentially from C1 to C8, the Corvette serves as Chevrolet’s halo vehicle and is widely noted for its performance and distinctive plastic—either fiberglass or composite—bodywork.

In 1953, when GM executives were looking to name the new Chevrolet sports car, assistant director for the Public Relations department Myron Scott suggested Corvette after the small maneuverable warship—and the name was approved. The first model, a convertible, was introduced at the GM Motorama in 1953 as a concept and was followed ten years later by the 1963 second generation, in coupe and convertible styles. Originally manufactured in Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, the Corvette has been manufactured in Bowling Green, Kentucky since 1981.

The Corvette has since become widely known as “America’s Sports Car.” Automotive News wrote that after being featured in the early 1960s television show Route 66, the Corvette became synonymous with freedom and adventure,” ultimately becoming both “the most successful concept car in history and the most popular sports car in history.”

I collect diecast models in scale 1:64 from 7-8 years of age. As I entered my teens, I began to restore old models and add them to my collection. Today in my collection there are both original models and many restored in scales 1:43, 1:60 and 1:64. This site is a digital catalog of a very small part of my collection as I have ambitions to introduce all my models in it.
