Automotive styling can be an extremely divisive topic of conversation. Some folks are truck people and some folks are car people. There are fans of fast and there are fans of fancy. And then, there are a few individuals out there who are–well–just out there. Such is the case with the designers of the Chevy Corvette Sportwagon.
Originally the brainchild of a man named Chuck Miller, the overall design was re-worked by John Greenwood for the ’74 - ’82 Corvettes. Sportwagon conversion kits were available to the general public through parts outlets like Eckler’s. While we are not certain as to how many of these kits were produced and installed, we feel we can say with a great degree of confidence that most of us are unlikely to see a Corvette Sportwagon on our way to work each day.
Some believed these cars suffered from a bad case of identity crisis while others couldn’t wait to grab a kit and add some style and cargo room to their Vettes. What do you think? Were the Sportwagons an unnatural twisting of all that is good and decent or were they a cool alternative for somebody wanting Corvette style and wagon practicality?
