In its second year at McCormick Place, the Chicago Auto Show continued to grow, with exhibits on two levels of the facility. Among the new models introduced that year were the Chevy II, Ford Fairlane and Mercury Meteor. For mid-1962, Chevrolet decided to turn the rear-engined Corvair into a sporty machine, courtesy of a turbocharged engine, tachometer, four-speed gearbox, tauter suspension and Monza Spyder designation. Among the imports seen that year were Alfa-Romeo, Austin, Commer, Daimler, Fiat-Abarth, Osca, Porsche, Opel and Simca.
