Chuck Jordan's Batmobile

“I’ve met Chuck Jordan several times over my career writing Corvette histories. This photo seems so implausible: dapper, disciplined Chuck sitting on a cartoon. Series creator Bob Kane and executive producer William Dozier asked GM Design’s help in creating a suitable escape car for their lead character, Batman. The TV show ran from 1966 through 1968 and starred Adam West.”

The above is an excerpt from Randy Leffingwell’s excellent book – Corvette Sixty Years – If you also suffer from a slightly unhealthy attraction to Corvettes, this book is an excellent read and contains hundreds of unpublished photographs and some fantastic stories.
