Nothing else but a dyed-in-the

It’s easy to see where Chevrolet
gets its road sense. With big coil
springs at every wheel, a firm, wider
stance and all of its pounds dis
tributed with painstaking care,
Chevy’s born with it.
The only thing that may be hard to
understand is how it can offer the
ride it does, along with so many
other luxury-car virtues, and still
compete in the low-price field.
We use the word compete only in
the sense of price. For with a ride
as special as Chevy's, real com
petitors are hard to come by.
There's a world of difference be
tween Chevrolet’s coil springs at all
four wheels and the leaf springs
that most other cars still use. Take
a Chevy down a snaky back road
and you’ll feel the difference in the
sure way it holds through curves
and shoots over rough spots with
hardly a ripple.
This one’s really r
made to travel
and loves every
minute of it. ____
Stop by your local authorized Chevrolet dealer’s and sample Chevy’s road sense! _
