A Brief History of Chevrolet
The company was founded by it’s owner, Louis Chevrolet. He was born on the 25th December in 1878 and was the son of a clock-maker from Switzerland. Louis, at the age of 11, found that his family was finding it difficult to cope and so, went to work for a bicycle shop. This is where he found his drive and excelled at mending bicycles.
Legends tell the tale of an 18 year-old Louis Chevrolet, fixing an American traveler’s three-wheeled bike. It is also said that this same traveler was none other than Willie K Vanderbilt, a former American motor racing patron. This event in itself, is said to have led Louis to America and to seek his fortune in the motor racing industry. In 1900, Louis did travel across the Atlantic and emigrated to Canada. There , he worked as a chauffeur and mechanic.
By 1907, Louis found himself racing for the reputable car manufacturer “Buick”. It is here that he met Billy Durant, who was a motoring entrepreneur of sorts. Durant, being a businessman, saw the potential benefit of adding this prominent mechanic now racer’s name, to a new car brand and in 1911, the two men gave life to their new company “Chevrolet Motor Car Company”, with their first model car being the “Classic Six”.
