When the '63 came out I was 2 years old and living in Japan. I wasn't a car guy yet.

My 63 was made in October 62 almost a full 8 years before I was born. That commercial is correct about the engineering. Hard to believe that basically the same chassis was under the car for almost 20 years. Definitely light years ahead of its time.

Interesting. Thanks for sharing.
But, couldn’t help but notice the Chevy Ii spewing excessive exhaust smoke at the tail-ending
