FIRST in Value . . .
FIRST in Big-Car
Quality at Lowest
Prices . . .
FIRST in Registrations
NOT only does Chevrolet stand out as the first and only low-priced
tar with all the following major advances which comprise the
soundest and best in modern motoring . . . not only does it offer all
these major advantages of Big-Car quality at lowest prices . . . but it
offers them at prices that are now definitely and decisively lower than
those of any other car that even remotely approaches it in quality!
It's the first and only low-priced car with the original and outstand
ing Unitized Knee-Action Ride. It's the first and only low-priced car
with a world's champion Valve-in-Head Engine. It's the first and only
low-priced car with the enviable Body by Fisher. It's the first and only
low-priced car with the triple safety-protection of Fisher Unisteel
Body-Construction, the Unitized Knee-Action Ride and Positive
Action Hydraulic Brakes.
And yet. despite the fact that CHEVROLET AND ONLY CHEV
ROLET IS FIRST to offer all these major advancements of low-cost
motoring, it holds an even greater price-advantage and gives you
even more value for your dollars in comparison with other automobiles
today than at any previous time in Chevrolet history I
CHEVROLET-cutdOn mMfij-IS FIRST!
