CHEVROLET MOVES UP PRODUCTION OF MILLIONTH CORVETTE

 CHEVROLET MOVES UP PRODUCTION OF MILLIONTH CORVETTE
 SAN DIEGO, April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Production of Chevrolet's


millionth Corvette, once scheduled for early August 1992, has been moved up about a month to the first week of July because of a recent surge in demand for the car, Chevrolet General Manager Jim Perkins said today.
 "Dealer sales of Corvette have increased steadily since the first of the year, days' supply has been dropping, and dealer orders have increased," Perkins said.
 "As a result, the Bowling Green (Ky.) Assembly plant is scheduling overtime production to meet the rising demand for Corvettes," Perkins said.
 Perkins spoke to reporters attending the Corvette Wind and Thunderfest in Balboa Park here. The gathering of Corvette enthusiasts was organized to highlight Corvette's status as the official car of both the America's Cup, and the America Cubed team. America Cubed is now competing in the best-of-13 defender finals with Dennis Conner's Stars and Stripes for the right to defend the America's Cup.
