did the first vettes have side windows
Hello ringinglee-- The original 1953 Corvettes did not have side windows and they didn't have outside door handles either. Don't ask me to explain why. For a good overview of the 1953 Corvette, check out the following site. The people who have put this site together have done a fabulous job. http://www.100megsfree4.com/corvette/1950/vet53.htm. Good luck from Bovan.
No, no windows or door handles.
