I was told by a local rodder that Chevrolet made a big car called Corvette back in the 20s or 30s.....anybody able to confirm this?
:tu Roger that, Nick! The Corvette of WWII was around 200 ft. in length and fell between the 100 ft. long wooden hulled sub chaser and the 300 ft. long destroyer escort in size.A Corvette, prior to the car, was a small ship, very agile and quick and designed for convoy escort duty.
That is a great list but it is not complete as the also made a version of the Camero called a Berlinetta. Also don't see the Z-28 listed, nor the 1954 Concept Corvettes, specifically the Corvette Nomad wagon. http://www.corvettes.nl/gm_prototypes/nomad/ and Corvette Corvair http://www.corvettes.nl/gm_prototypes/corvair/index.html
In North America, Chevrolet also produced a version of the Chevrolet Camaro called the Berlinetta, from 1977 to 1986. The model offered European styling touches to emphasize the interior rather than the performance of the car, which had long been the main selling point of the Camaro.
