America’s Sensational Sports Car!
Creating a sensation everywhere! The new Chevrolet Corvette has been received with a storm of enthusiastic approval wherever it has been shown.
The racy new Corvette sets a new style for a new field-the American sports car. Barely 33 inches high at door level, it has broad low lines and a road-hugging center of gravity. The smoothly contoured glass-fiber body is surmounted by a rakish back-swept windshield. A smart fabric top fold into a concealed compartment in the long rear deck just ahead of a commodious luggage locker. The spacious two-place cockpit is beautifully styled and finished throughout in typical sports car tradition.
As for performance…it’s thrilling. A 160 h.p., extra-high-compression “Blue Flame” engine is teamed with the new Powerglide automatic transmission…a combination that makes the Corvette an outstanding performer on any road, under any condition.
This is a car, of which we can say with complete sincerity,
"You have to see it to believe it." The Corvette is scheduled for limited production during the last half of 1953.
More people buy Chevrolets than any other car!
