Chevrolet Aircraft Corporation
1928 - 1930
In 1928 Louis Chevrolet parted ways with his younger brother Art at the Chevrolet Bros Mfg Co, and started a new company called the Chevrolet Aircraft Corporation. Louie’s new airplane engine was an inverted design with the crankshaft on top, and the cylinder heads and valve train components on the bottom of the assembly. Louis then sought out new investors to take his idea from paper into production. The following documents relate to Louie’s aircraft business.
