Corvette Ad Watch: AC Spark Plugs and the Mako Shark

by Keith Cornett on September 30, 2008

AC Spark Plugs and the Mako Shark

In this vintage AC Spark Plugs magazine ad, the headline reads “Shark by Chevrolet – ACtion sparked by AC”.

The ad features Chevrolet’s XP-755, otherwise known as the Mako Shark. Under the illustration, the small text description reads “The XP-755 Chevrolet Corvette Shark: 102.1″ wheelbase, 192.2″ overall, 327-cubic-inch displacement, V-8 engine featuring Roots-type supercharger, 4 side-draft carburetors developing over 400 horsepower.”

A Roots-type Supercharger on the Shark? Who knew…
