THE CHEVROLET CORVETTE

 
 

 



 
 
 Harley Earl 1893~1969
Who was Harley Earl???
Well without Harley Earl's help we would not have a Corvette today.
Harley Earl started working for Generals Motors in 1927 as designer. Earl's job was   to displace Ford Motors prominence in the automotive world.
He had many successes with GM. Harley Earl loved Sports Cars, and when the returning GI's after World War II came home with MGs , Jaguars, convinced GM that they needed to build a sports car. The result was the 1953 Corvette!

This was a nice car but was built almost entirely with existing part from the Chevrolet.
Then along came  Zora Arkus-Duntov. He was a man with a vision and this vision saved the Corvette.
Zora was determined to develop the 'Vette into a true world class sports car.
Soon, Zora became director of high performance at Chevrolet and set about transforming GM's largest division from a conservative company into a youthful, exciting one. In the process, he would change the Corvette from a docile roadster into a full-blown sports car that measured up on and off the racetrack against the likes of Porsche, Ferrari, Maserati, and Mercedes.
So those are two names any Corvette fan should know.
