Pre-Production Trivia

  • In 1951 a group of Harley Earl's "Special Projects" crew began work on a GM sports car. Bob McLean designed a general layout for the car which was originally code named, "Opel."
  • William Durant, the founder of GM, said a wallpaper pattern he saw in a Paris hotel in 1908 inspired the bow tie logo. Supposedly, he ripped off a small piece of it and brought it back to Detroit.
  • Myron Scott, at the time Chevrolet's Chief photographer, is credited with coming up with the Corvette name, drawing from the small, fast warships of the "Corvette" class.
  • The Jaguar XK120 is believed to have been the inspiration for the first Corvette.
  • The Corvette was the first and last car with a true "wrap-around" windshield.
  • Corvette was not the first to be made with a fiberglass body, but it was the first to be built by a company the size of Chevrolet.
  • Corvettes have been assembled in three different cities. Flint, Michigan, St. Louis, Missouri, and Bowling Green, Kentucky.
