What’s as surefooted as Corvette?
Take a Corvette out on the road and you’ll think it is wearing calked boots, too! For it is quite literally true that America has no other cars that can equal Corvettes footwork-or give you the same wonderful sense of stability, of right-now obedience. How could they? Nothing else has the combination of compact 102-inch wheelbase, of “outboard” rear springs, of 16 to 1 * steering ratio, of supple but solid sports car suspension. When you package this with Corvette’s array of sports car V8’s, plus transmission choices that include an all-synchro four-speed gearbox*-and grace it all with the wonderfully functional luxuries that are corvettes hallmark-then you have a car that is not just superior but, actually, is completely different.
It is different in the way it moves, in the superlative security of its road-holding, in the heart-lifting brilliance of its performance.
