“Loaded for bear”
There’s mighty potent ammunition under the hood of the new Corvette-for now the “Blue-Flame” 6 is joined by a very special 195-h.p. version of the astonishing Chevrolet V8 engine!
This is the engine sports car drivers have been waiting for-compact, low in weight, ultra-rigid, with all the inherent virtues of Chevrolets three-inch stroke, massive crank-shaft, and short manifolds. And when you add an almost pressure-free dual exhaust system, a high-lift camshaft and four-barrel carburetor, you get GO in great big capital letters!
How does it go? Like “The Ride of the Valkyries,” the takeoff of a V-2 rocket, the plunge down the Cresta bobsled run-all like this sheer triumphant surge of power…or the way the V8 Corvette cruises, as effortless as a flame burns.
Even if you have known the Corvette before…if you have tested its rock-solid stability on curves, its polo-pony compactness, its fantastic grip on the road, and its hairline 16 to 1 steering…the V8 version will stun you. But if you have never driven any Corvette, then you are to be envied. You have an experience coming-a singing jubilation that will tingle in your memory all the rest of your life!
True, you risk spoiling yourself for every other kind of car. But why not phone your Chevrolet dealer, now, and set up a date with the new V8?
