Corvette hollowbody has a 16" lower bout. And if the model stamp is 6182-3, the vintage is a '53 model year example. If the stamp is just 6182, then it's a '54-56 model year example.

It will fit in the vintage Gretsch 16" wide cases (of course) but if you're looking for something modern, I can't help you.
