From a different mold
If transportation is what you’re looking for in a car, Corvette is not for you.
Corvette is a polished instrument specifically designed for driving pleasure, with the crisp, clean precision of handling and steering, the almost electronic responses that are the mark of the true sports car. Sure, it is wonderfully comfortable and dead reliable-but it is primarily a driver’s machine, shaped and sprung and powered for the top-grade motorist.
This is not every man’s car, and we have no intention of pretending that it is. The solid feel, the whetted perfection of traction and tracking developed in six years of refinement will mean the most to those with the skill to savor them.
Corvette is from a different mold, literally. For no other car made in America shares its low-slung torpedo shape or uses ultra-strong, ultra-light fiberglass for its body shell. No other U.S.-built auto can promise more than a faint echo of Corvettes authentic sports car excitement.
