Somewhere deep in the back of my garage lies an edition of (I think) R&T from '62, which from memory features what they claimed to be the 1st road-test of that car, was it originally a 221? (not sure). Anyway, then it was unpainted and as I recall R&T were blown away by the performance. Perhaps this mag is in your town library?

In a local road-test of a later model, which featured those neat little vents next to the front nerf bars, a small boy asked the tester why those vents were meshed, to which he replied that it was "to keep out slow birds and low-flying Cessnas..!"
