See first-hand how robots weld the steel and human workers add the parts to make a Corvette at this plant, the only one in the U.S. that produces the car. Call ahead as tours will be suspended starting December 1, 2003 through April of 2004.

Everyone, but especially Corvette owners, will be impressed by this plant tour. If you've never been inside an auto plant, prepare to have your preconceived notions shattered. Clean, relatively quiet, and very informative. This was our second tour (first was 5 years ago) and we...More

The recent visit to the assembly plant was great. You walk close to the assembly of the new corvette. It's interesting how they assemble a group of 20 or so cars in a group. Their interest in quality really shows

What a fun experience! I ordered tickets on their website which reserves your spot. I suggest doing that in advance. Keep your phone/camera in the car as there are no photos allowed inside the facility.

I'm trying to find out something about my 1986 corvette coupe early model. Does it have roller rockers or flat tappet.

The Chevrolet engineers boosted the horsepower of the 1987 corvette by 10 hp to 240 by the use of roller-bearing hydraulic valve lifters. I don't believe your 1986 will have them unless retro fitted. Joe Campbell
