'66 Corvette Magazine Ad

FLIGHT 427, NOW DEPARTING THROUGH GATES 1, 2, 3, AND 4.   A really nice way to think about how it is to drive a Corvette with a four speed and a 427. I can tell you, it is true. I am pretty sure Bruce McCall was still writing these and Roy Jackson was the art director. The gear shift is done using the line art we had developed over the tears. My guess is that it may have been picked up from a newspaper ad to save a little Chevrolet money. The line leading into the logo says--Corvette Performance The Chevrolet Way-- and tied in with the other ads in the campaign. This ad appeared in Road & Track and Sports Car Graphic for April 1966 and Sports Car for May 1966.
