A CLEAN BREAK
WITH THE PAST
"Sold on the cleanliness!" says
Mrs. John Barrowsof San Angelo,
Texas. The Barrows have lived in
total-electric comfort for almost
three years, and are pleased with
the living! Pleased that it is so
clean . .. less dust. Pleased with
the electric cooling and heating
because it does such an "excel-
lent job." Pleased that they can
set the temperature controls
one time in the summer, and one
time in the winter and a constant
temperature is maintained. The
Barrows are pleased that there
have been no service problems
with the heating or cooling units,
no cold spots in winter or hot cor-
ners in the summer. Both are es-
pecially pleased that the electric
bill is so reasonable. Only $42.31
per month average. That is the
total operating cost for cooling,
heating, lighting, laundry, water
heating, cooking, cleaning and
running all of the work-saving
electrical appliances for a family
of 5— and Robert, age 15; Ken,
age 11; and Bryan, age 10; are

Chevy II Nova
'68s Top Secrets are here
The 1968 Chevrolets are the very
essence of modern design. Every line,
every curve is in close harmony. It’s a
smooth, uncluttered look with roof
lines compatible with body lines,
grilles and bumpers that blend grace-
fully into long, rounded fenders. Clean,
flowing, beautiful in their simplicity,
these ’68 Chevrolets are rich and ad-
vanced in styling beyond any you’ve
A MORE SILENT RIDE
And for 1968, we’ve gone to every
length to give you more peace and
quiet inside. The most sophisticated
computers have been used to strategi-
cally place body mounts and success-
fully isolate noise and vibration.
Shock absorbers have been improved.
The wheel stance on many models is
wider for greater smoothness. Ex-
haust systems have been redesigned
to make them whisper-quiet. Even the
clocks tick more softly. A sound car is
a silent car. The ’68 Chevrolets are the
most silent, highest quality cars we’ve
There are new engines, a bigger
standard Six and V8. There’s a new
250-hp V8 you can order that runs on
regular fuel. Many new engine com-
ponents increase dependability and
keep your new Chevrolet running
stronger. There’s a new rear axle
ratio you can add for greater econ-
omy. On most engines equipped with
automatic transmissions, there’s a
special heater for the carburetor
which gives you more efficient per-
formance in cold weather. And with
every engine, you get the new GM
exhaust emission control.
UNIQUE ASTRO VENTILATION
There’s a whole new idea in ventila-
tion, called Astro Ventilation, for Ca-
maro, Corvette and the elegant Ca-
price Coupe. It’s also available on
many other models. By opening two
new vent-ports on the instrument
panel, you bring in outside air that
can be directed where you want it.
This way, you can leave your windows
rolled up and add still more to your
peace and quiet.
PROVED SAFETY FEATURES
You get the proved GM-developed
energy absorbing steering column,
folding front seat back latches, dual
master cylinder brake system with
warning light, plus many more new
features. Among them: energy absorb-
ing front seat backs, and safety arm-
rests that shield the door handles.
MUCH MORE THAT’S NEW
There are new roof lines, some formal
and graceful, others sporty and quick.
There are new instrument panels,
richly designed and all controls within
easy reach. There are new interiors,
new vinyls, new fabrics, new colors.
There are models with Hide-A-Way
windshield wipers and headlights that
disappear behind grilles. There are
new side marker lamps, new recessed
taillights. There’s even a new ignition
alarm buzzer that reminds you not to
walk away and leave your keys in the
These are the newest, the most differ-
ent, the most dramatically changed
Chevrolets ever. And they’re at your
Chevrolet dealer’s now. You’ll thor-
oughly enjoy slipping behind the
wheel, experiencing the smooth new
handling and library-quiet ride and,
more than anything, seeing and feel-
ing the even greater quality built into
every new Chevrolet for 1968.
Be smart! Be sure! Buy now at your Chevrolet dealer’s.
There’s more quality and value built into Chevrolets than ever before, making every new 1968 model an even better buy!
