Incredible GM Promo Video: Testing the 1963 Corvettes in October of 1962 with Zora Arkus Duntov


Incredible GM Promo Video: Testing the 1963 Corvettes in October of 1962 with Zora Arkus Duntov

This video, entitled “Biography of a Sports Car” was produced by GM in October of 1962 just before the groundbreaking 1963 Corvettes were released for sale. It features noted sports car racers Dr. Dick Thompson and Dave MacDonald thrashing the cars at high speed around GM’s Milford Proving Grounds. It also has amazing ambient sound of the cars. 

The neatest part in our eyes is later in the video when Duntov interviews the drivers about their impressions of the new Corvette. It’s literally the first time we’ve ever heard Duntov speak.

This is one of the coolest pieces of video we’ve ever found.
