A Decade of Technical Innovation

Automotive historian and veteran author David Temple goes behind the scenes to reveal how General Motors designed, developed and delivered breakthrough technologies on Chevrolet's fine portfolio of cars: the Corvette, 1955-1957 Bel Air, Nomad, Impala, and many more.

As the 1950s dawned, General Motors focused its industrial might on producing revolutionary rather than evolutionary cars with the ultimate goal of becoming the clear market leader in the automotive industry. To accomplish this goal, the company consistently released innovative automotive technology. During the decade, Chevrolet introduced the small-block V-8, the Powerglide automatic transmission, air-conditioning, power steering, and many other amenities that made the cars faster, safer, and more comfortable.
