Printed in the USA! Brock is seen above overseeing the printing of every page of this First Edition, 144 page book which contains 180+ photographs and sketches throughout.

About the book: As a young designer at GM Styling in 1957, Brock's involvement with the design of the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray has been well overshadowed by his successes at Shelby American, but they are no less fascinating. Brock shares the inside story of how the ’63 Corvette Sting Ray came to be, including never before seen images of Harley Earl’s design (full size models) for a second generation (C2) Corvette in 1955, which included a split window! Earl knowing he would retire in ’58 handed the future of the C2 project off to his heir apparent, Bill Mitchell, in 1957. The rest as they say is history, but the history of the origin and evolution of the Corvette Sting Ray design from ’55 through ’60 has been relatively unknown, until now.

Brock takes us on a spell binding journey through the automotive industry with his first-hand account, including the dynamics of working with Earl, Mitchell, Ed Cole and Zora Arkus-Duntov. It’s an insider’s view seldom seen or understood. Thanks to GM’s support in allowing Brock to share never-before-seen photographs of GM Styling from 1955 through 1963 combined with more than 20 original sketches drawn by Brock at GM Styling from ’57-’58 this book will become an instant classic and must-have for any enthusiast’s collection.

In a Foreword written by Ed Welburn, GM’s current VP of Global Styling, Welburn shares his first experience upon seeing a 1963 Corvette Sting Ray and how it determined his future career path.
