  • "Leave It to Corvette"

    Noticed something interesting this morning while watching an old "Leave It to Beaver" episode from 1963 called "The Credit Card." Chrysler Corp. usually furnished the cars for this show, but this one was different. In a scene where Wally, Lumpy, and Eddie walk to their car after a football game, in the background in the parking lot is a black 1958 Corvette. It's on-screen for close to a full minute with people getting in and out of it etc. Interesting that in 1963 it was just another car in the lot next to a VW Beetle, no icon status yet, etc.

    Nice Corvette spotting in Leave It To Beaver! There is another episode where a club of "cool" guys at the high school try to get Wally to join and they race into the Cleavers driveway in a Corvette. With Chrysler sponsoring the show, Corvettes couldn't be featured to much.
