This was the first of four posters prepared for Chevrolet Dealers. One for 1958 and then one for each of the next three years. At the time there were something over 6000 dealers and they each got one poster. The budget for the posters was very limited and so the art was obtained from Myron Scott who was in charge of the GM photo archives. The picture of the Corvette was made by GM Photographic. Walter Farynk and Don Sudnick were the principal photographers at the time so one of them most likely made the photo. There wasn't much of an over run on the posters so I was able to obtain only a couple for my portfolio. If you have one of these you have a very rare piece of Corvette memorabilia and it could be worth more than you think.
