(BUT HOW TH£Y WISH THEY HAD 'EM)
You'll find Chevrolet seats are up to a fuH
5.7 inches wider than those of the other leading
low-priced sedans. And Chevy gives you even more
head room than most of the highest priced sedans.
CHEVY'S BIGGER BRAKES
Chevrolet's new Safety-Master brakes are built for
up to two-thirds longer life with more lining
area than any other low-priced car.
CHEVY'S FULL COIL RIDE
No other leading low-priced car cushions you
with coil springs at every wheel.
CHEVY'S FRESH STYLING
You don't have to look twice at Chevy's clean-swept
silhouette to know it's a new car. And that's bound
to mean a higher allowance at trade-in time.
CHEVY'S BIGGER SAVINGS
A pair of Chevrolet 6's proved this emphatically-
coming in first and secpnd in their class in this
year's Mobilgas Economy Run. And the winning
mileage was a whopping 22.38 m.p.g.
CHEVY'S HIGHER TRADE-IN VALUE
The National Automobile Dealers Association
Official Used Car Guide Book shows that Chevy
consistently brings a higher trade-in allowance than
any other low-priced car.
CHEVY'S ADVANCED-DESIGN ENGINES
Chevy's the only car in its field that gives you
oil-hushed hydraulic valve lifters on all
standard engines for smoother quieter performance.
It's the only American car at any price with a
high-performance V8 that packs more than one
horsepower into every cubic inch of displacement. And
you get nine engines in all to choose from... every
one of them with the convenience of automatic choke.
