A direct reference to the 200th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, the "Spirit of America" catchphrase was baked into the enameled metal of some Harvestore silos. Many consumer products, including the Spirit of America Chevrolet, expressed patriotism in preparation for the US Bicentennial celebration. The blue Harvestore was the ultimate though towering as they did above the American rural landscape.
