1960 CHEVROLET CORVAIR COMMERCIAL JIMMY DEAN
Popular entertainer pitches the new, 1960 Chevrolet Corvair in this
vintage, "live" commercial. Motor Trend's "Car of the Year" in 1960, the
rear drive, air-cooled engined Corvair was a radical departure from other
Detroit designs of the decade. Although expensive to manufacture, the
"compact car" was initially a success for General Motors with annual sales
often exceeding 200,000 units and total sales from the nine years of
production (1960-1969) totalling 1,786,243 cars. Following the safety
issued raised about the car in Ralph Nader's 1965 book, UNSAFE AT ANY SPEED
resulting in sales plummeting 95% between 1965 and 1969, GM cancelled
production of the car.
