1960 Corvette Commercial

The third star of Route 66 is, of course, the Corvette. Here is an advertisement for the 1960 Chevrolet Corvette. Also featured prominently in this ad is the '60 Chevrolet Impala. Unlike some of my earlier posts, this commercial was not broadcast during Route 66 episodes. By the time Season One began in the fall of 1960, CBS was already airing commercials for the 1961 Chevrolet cars. Still, the commercial is fun to watch to catch a glimpse of Buz and Tod's co-star, the '60 Corvette. Buz and Tod's light blue Corvette became all the rage across America after the show aired, and apparently Chevrolet couldn't keep them in stock. When you see how snazzy this set of wheels is, it's not too hard to understand why.
