    How do you like your eggs? Chevy vs Ford 1963



    Chevrolet and its advertising agency won their fourth Cannes Grand Prix in five years with “Truck Egg Test.” The commercial demonstrated the smooth ride of a Chevy truck by suspending a basket of eggs from the body. When the truck drove over a rough surface, the eggs didn’t break.

    Hard to beat the ride of a coil-spring Chevy pickup! There was a similar film comparing an early 60's Chevy C-60 medium duty stake bed with a similar Ford. Chevy used torsion bar independent front suspension on their medium's from '60 to '62.

    Very interesting, thanks for posting!

    The truck in the video above is from 1960. 63 had a different grille, hood and hubcaps. Actually many things changed in the 63 model year.

    This video is from the 1962 Chevrolet T-O-P new model training for 1963.


    Another 1962 training video.
