1956 Corvette: Production Information: Mandatory Option 469 Dual Four Barrel Carburetor Equipment
Subject: Mandatory Option Changes
Model and Year: 1956 Corvette

TO: ALL CHEVROLET DEALERS
This is to advise that effective immediately the Corvette can now be ordered without the mandatory option 469, Dual 4 Barrel Carburetor equipment. The regular Corvette engine without this equipment has a single 4 barrel carburetor and is rated at 210 HP.
In the near future I feel that you will be able to order a Corvette as you desire, using none of the mandatory options that are now listed.
Very truly yours,
Zone Car Distributor
