As presenting sponsor of the 2012 Woodward Dream Cruise, Chevrolet celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the Corvette by showcasing a special timeline featuring milestone models of America’s Sports throughout its storied history.
The Corvette timeline was segmented by the six generations of Corvettes and the board behind the cars listed the significant developments that occurred during those years. Most of the Corvettes featured in the timeline came from the GM Heritage Center but there were also a lot of 2013 Corvettes on display as well.
Here are the Corvettes that were included in the 2012 Woodward Dream Cruise Corvette timeline:
- 1953 Convertible
- 1960 Convertible
- 1973 Coupe (Bill Mitchell Style Car)
- 1989 ZR-1
