Legendary Corvettes: Vettes Made Famous on Track and Screen Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chevrolet has never built an ordinary Corvette. Even the most mundane coupe draws a crowd everywhere it goes. But through victory at racetracks, exposure in film and television, or other notable achievements, a select few Corvettes have attained mythic status. Eighteen of the most legendary Corvettes of all time—from the earliest surviving Corvette ever built for the 1953 model year to the late first-generation Corvettes used in the classic television series Route 66 to the five Grand Sport racers built by Zora Arkus-Duntov, the Godfather of the Corvette, to a fifth-generation Corvette raced by the team that included father-and-son Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt Jr. just before the elder Earnhardt’s tragic death—are featured in this book.

Synopsis:

Chevrolet has never built an “ordinary” Corvette, but through racetrack victories, movie fame and other achievements, a select few have attained mythic status. This book features eighteen of the most legendary Corvettes of all time.
