 Available late January, 1964.

Current order forms do not show these options, thus when ordering, please use the blank spaces on the Corvette order form (OSD-806).

In connection with the release of the above options, your attention is directed to the Special Performance Package (RPO-Z06) initially released for the 1964 model Corvette.  The contemplated design modification and refinements did not materialize.  However, in line with customer and dealer requests, the basic performance suspension and brake components have been separated and re-released as indicated above.  Thus, the customer can now select the option that meets his particular requirements or order both of them depending on the intended usage of his Corvette.

Just as a reminder, if you have not already done so, we wish to remind you that 50% of your orders for January  are already past due.  We suggest that you bring your orders in line up to at least the 75% mark, as soon as possible, and if you so desire you can cover your full schedule for January by return mail.

Very truly yours,

Leo J. S. Karl
Zone Distribution Manager
