The second picture shows how it looked in real life. CERV I, for Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle, was developed in 1959 and 1960 to test and develop a variety of suspension and chassis components. It was the brain child of legendary. He was the man largely credited with taking the Chevrolet Corvette from a nice looking, but otherwise unremarkable, little convertible to a genuinely competitive sports car.
Though it looked like an open-wheeled race car, the CERV I never actually raced since GM did not allow involvement in racing at the time. The closest it got was when Duntov drove some demonstration laps in the car before the 1960 U. The car was originally equipped with a light weight 350 horsepower V8. Duntov later installed a more powerful engine. It has a four-speed manual transmission.
It was, at least once, driven to a top speed of 206 miles an hour. GM will add the CERV I to its Heritage Collection in Sterling Heights, Mich. The Hertitage Center is, essentially, an invitation only museum of important GM cars open only to GM employees, their families and invited guests.Or your and our safety. Please see my other auctions.
