If you own a 1953 to 2006 Corvette, you can download a PDF of your car’s Official Chevrolet Specifications!
I was recently working on a story for Vette Vues about the 1968 Astro-Vette. Since Chevrolet still has the car, I thought I might be able to get some specs on the car from the GM Heritage Center, but they didn’t have anything. So, I took a little time to poke around the site.
In the “Archive” Tab dropdown there’s a link titled, “Vehicle Information Kits”. From there you can choose; Cadillac, Oldsmobile or Chevrolet. If you click the Chevrolet link, on the next page you can select the Year and Model Chevrolet you are looking for.
If you just choose “Corvette” it will take you to THIS PAGE.
From there, pick your year, you’ll be asked to agree with GM’s “Creative Commons License Agreement” which simply says that you agree to not sell the material. After you click “Okay” a PDF of the year Corvette you are looking for will be downloaded and can be saved to your computer, or open it through your computer’s browser.
These are not brochures, they are scans of official Chevrolet general specifications for the car. For instance, the PDF for the 1967 Corvette is 85 pages. There’s probably more information in these documents than you’ll ever need to know about, but it’s a neat thing to have about your car.
So go git yours today! – Scott
