It all started with the Corvette Development Manager's experiments - Bila Mitchell and Zora Arcus-Dantum. They were inspired by the idea of an innovative athlete in the back and centre of the engine.Краткий обзор It was also assumed that the new Corvette would have a steel body, with fewer and easier old models. That idea was most popular with Arcouss-Dants, because it was him who worked at the same time on the compact backwater Chevy Corwayr. At the same time, a prototype, called Q-Corvette, used a unit and a force part from Korweir, including its complex 6-cylindrical engine with air cooling. Later, in the fall of 1959, most Q-Corvette nodes were moved to the next prototype, XP-720, which became final for the 2nd generation of Corvette.

750 469 Summary

One of Chevrolet Corvette C2

While Zora Arcouss-Dantum and his team were developing a brand-new chassis, the design department led by Peter Brock and Chuck Poolman was working on a new body. At the same time, a full-fledged capsule with a wooden frame was created to develop an interior.

Later, for practical reasons, the developers had to abandon the idea of a backbone and a steel body. It was finally decided to use glazing bodies with a spatial steel frame as a cell. Such a design allowed the body to become much more stringent and safer, even slightly gaining in mass than the previous model. But the basic requirements remained a great simplicity and comfort of the interior, better management, and excellent chaining with the road. In addition, in the early 1960s, GM was actively experimenting with a fully independent subweigh, resulting in the introduction of a rear independent suspension into new models, including Corvette.
