    In this close-up shot, a female presenter is seated inside the Chevrolet Astro I show car, while her male colleague speaks to the crowd. Based on the rear engine Corvair compact car, Astro I sat on an 88 inch wheelbase and powered by a mid mounted air-cooled six cylinder powerplant. A hatch lifted behind the windshield, and the seat rose to meet the passengers, then descended and reclined to allow the low roof. A periscope rear view mirror looked over the blind rear quarters.
