An American ClassicBook - 2001
The Corvette was America's first--and sometimes only--sports car, and an instant classic from its very first appearance. This is its story, from the trailblazers of 1953 to the sexy Sting Rays of the 60s and 70s to today's gorgeous, powerful C5. Detailed entries on every model that rolled off the assembly line, and a few that never did, and more than 200 color images make this a volume for car lovers to savor. See the very first 'Vette, a car ahead of its time, with its fiberglass body, sporty roadster configuration, and subtle fins. Pore through pictures of each succeeding model as Chevrolet continued to break new ground. Find out how the designers worked out the kinks that hampered the success of the first generation Corvette, and ultimately turned it into a high-performance ride with street appeal. A true celebration of an American masterpiece.
