about this item
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 achievments, a select few Corvettes have attained mythic status. Eighteen of the most legendary Corvettes of all time—from the first 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 the fifth-generation Corvette raced by the father-and-son team of Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt Jr. just before the elder Earnhardt’s tragic death—are featured in this book.
