This collection chronicles the development of America's favorite sports car by the designers and engineers who made it happen. These 30 papers cover more than 50 years and six generations of the engineering, styling, and research and development of the Chevrolet Corvette. Twenty-two papers focus on the first five generations, with the last eight papers detailing the new sixth-generation Corvette. Material collected in this volume truly has unprecedented historical value. A 1954 paper by Maurice Olley presents a technical description of the first production Corvette. The book's preface includes insight from Zora Arkus-Duntov into the reasons behind the Corvette's development. Other highlights include comments from Corvette's chief engineer, a press release created by General Motors on its fiftieth anniversary, and a timeline with photos documenting the Corvette's evolution.
