Corvette 1956: Pebble Beach

PEBBLE BEACH

 

The 1956 Corvette is grooving-in open competition – that it is America’s only genuine production sports car.  Extremely stable, with outrigger leaf springs at the rear, 16 to 1 steering ratio and weight distribution close to 50-50, it has demonstrated its ability to corner on equal terms with the best European production sports cars. Of particular interest to the competition driver are the close-ratio manual gearbox, with 2.2 to 1 low gear and 1.31 to 1 second gear; the two rear axle ratios of 3.70 to 1 or 3.27 to 1; the power-to-weight advantage of the Corvette’s glass fiber body and the special racing brake lining, now available at Chevrolet dealerships.

For the driver who requires a superlative touring car rather than a competition machine the Corvette is available with such extra-cost luxuries as removable hardtop, power operated cloth top and window lifters, plus the Powerglide automatic transmission.

If you are considering a sports car, don’t fail to sample the 1956 Corvette.  It is the surprise car of the year, as your Chevrolet dealer will be delighted to demonstrate.
