The book reveals the elaborate and complicated history and secret origins of the legendary "split window" 1963 Corvette Sting Ray. In 1957 Brock was one of the youngest designers ever hired by GM Styling. He gives automotive enthusiasts his revealing insider’s look into what it was like working directly under GM’s famed executive team of Bill Mitchell, Harley Earl, Zora Arkus-Duntov and Ed Cole, who risked their careers by flaunting corporate mandate to create one of America’s most iconic designs. This profusely illustrated book, with previously unseen sketches and rare studio photographs, covers the unknown Italian influence that primed Mitchell’s design, right on through the many changes in direction, goals and sometimes outrageous political machinations that resulted in various full-scale models, racing prototypes, and even Mitchell’s personal race program before the production version was finally refined and brought to market in 1963. It’s a story not just for Sting Ray owners but all serious students of automotive history. With a foreword by Ed Welburn, GM’s current Director of Global Design, this special book will be a valuable asset to any library as well as a great read.
