Corvair by Chevrolet - Experimental & Production Cars 1957-1969

One of the most controversial cars ever made, Chevrolet's Corvair is celebrated in this unique pictorial history. From his files on the Corvair - which he first road-tested in 1959 - Karl Ludvigsen presents a plethora of photos of the original 'Holden' prototypes on test and even a Corvair engine installed in a Porsche, its first running test bed.
Photos of the production Corvairs down through the years are interspersed with wild and woolly prototypes and concept cars based on this unique rear-engined auto, the one whose unusual handling helped make Ralph Nader famous.

Ludvigsen, who worked at GM during much of the Corvair era from 1960 to 1969, reveals styling models and describes his own involvement with one of the handsomest sports prototypes ever designed, the Corvair Monza GT. It's a feast for fans of the novel and endearing Corvair.
