But at one point Chevrolet wanted to kill this Corvette Grand Sport and this is its story …

Depends on what you like....Most and Highest price Corvettes are the 63-67's! Most ever sold were the 79's! Like snow flakes all Corvettes are different, there are no 2 that are completely alike!

How about that one American company that has never gone bankrupt or borrowed money from the federal government, and sells the #1 selling vehicle in the world and makes 160 billion a year. What's it called again? Oh yeah, FORD

This was a great video, but it also must be said that even though the Cobras did dominate the race tracks of the 60's, they did not always win, out side of the Grand sports names like Dick Thompson, Dick Boo, Dick Gulstrand and Bill Sherwood beat the Cobras at there own game in Stock 63- Z0-6 Racing Corvettes. Dough Hooper won the first Riverside race against Cobras in 1963. The L88 427 66 Corvettes painted the writing on the wall for Cobras! By 1969 Corvette was king again..and as they say the rest is History!

Fucking skinny jeans. Zora is the godfather of corvette along with Bill Mitchell. Harley Earl is the farther of the corvette.

really dropped the ball on "Winning races and filling cavities." "Winning races, and fitting braces" would have been much better.

How can America be known for pizza when pizza is Italian, I hate You enough as it is, I just wanna learn more about cars and you happen to be the one that made this video. Your a fucking idiot and sound autistic.

I dont get how building a race car somehow creates anti-trust issues.
You clearly know a lot. You clearly are able to present facts in an interesting manner. Just STOP ACTING LIKE A CLOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is really a good advice. Out of curiosoty: how do people on the street react to you? Do they always take you serisouly? Or do people who meet you in person just take a selfie with you and then very quickly go away? Are you perhaps taking some drugs? Are you high during some of those shoots? Were you always like that? Even as a child? Did you have problems growing up?

Gotta love how Chevy ordered these cars to be destroyed numerous times, yet have no problem using the Grand Sport name nowadays to sell more corvettes.

Soooo, purpose built racecars beat modified production cars... Nooo shit lmfao.. They never went door to door as they never homolagated them. Hence, a Ferrari 250 gto could afford you all 5 of the original grand sport Vettes and a far more common 427 Cobra is still valued in the millions..

Duntov walked into the general managers office at Chevrolet with the finished blueprints for the mid rear corvette in the 60's and was told NO. "I'll raise the money and make it myself." Well that never happened however the C8 will soon be out and will finally be mid engine and rear wheel drive.

Oh wait was this a Superformance commercial. OK just checking??? Does the mean we will see a video on the Ford GT40? Superformance has been making the GT40 since buying the rights a long time ago.
