Corvette Ad Watch: AC Spark Plugs and the Mako Shark

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.”

    Thanks for that link. There must have been a series of these AC Spark Plugs featuring Corvette concepts. Would love to have been able to blow it up to read it.
