History of Chevy
Often referred to as a "Bowtie" because of the emblem, the make is one of the many General Motors (GM) brands of automobiles. Founded in 1911 by racecar driver Louis Chevrolet and GM founder William Durant, the company was created to compete with the immensely popular Ford "Model T". Louis had been racing Buicks for Durant, who at the time was the head of the Buick Motor Company after being publicly ejected from GM in 1910. Durant wanted to repair his reputation as a carmaker, and believed he could do it with Louis's cutting-edge designs, premium quality Chevy parts, and a new brand of automobile.
Automobile manufacturing began in Toronto, Canada, and the line was purchased a few years later by General Motors to become General Motors of Canada. Sales of vehicles and Chevy parts from United States operations were strong and profitable enough for Durant to purchase a majority stake in GM stock, and by 1917 Durant was once again at the helm of General Motors as President. Durant merged Chevrolet into GM as a separate division, and in 1918 unveiled the overhead-valve inline six cylinder engine, which used innovative materials & technology to create much more power than the ubiquitous low-compression flat head engines of the period.
Chevrolet continued to be a major player in the 1950s and 1960s American auto scene, launching the venerable small-block V8 and the first fuel-injected automobile engine. Though nearly all of the components in these vehicles have changed over the years, the basic 350 cubic inch engine design has remained the same. In fact, in 1963 ten percent of all cars sold in the US were Chevys.
