The real McCoy
Here is the most remarkable car made in America today—the new Chevrolet Corvette.
Because it is two cars wrapped up in one sleek skin. One is a luxury car with glove-soft upholstery, wind-up windows, a removable hardtop, or fabric top, ample luggage space, a velvety ride and all the power assists you could want, including power-operated fabric top and powerglide transmission.
The other is a sports car. And we mean the real McCoy, a tough, road-gripping torpedo-on-wheels with the stamina to last through the brutal 12 hours of Sebring, a close-ratio transmission matched to engine torque characteristics, razor-sharp steering that puts command into your fingertips.
Other people make a luxury car that has much the same dimensions as this. That’s not so tough. And the Europeans make some real rugged competition sports cars-and that’s considerably tougher. But nobody but Chevrolet makes a luxury car that laso is a genuine 100-proof sports car.
