Chevrolet, are as eager to deliver cars as
you are to obtain them. Unfortunately,
production so far this year is far under
expectations. Chevrolet Motor Division
sums up the situation thus:
“Even though our rate of production
normally exceeds that of any other
manufacturer, we have been able to
build, up to July 1, only 12.4 per cent
as many cars as we had built up to
'that date in 1941. Production is still
far below normal, because of fre
quent shortages of essential mate
rials and parts. Strike after strike at the
plants of our suppliers has seriously
impeded our progress toward full
production, and the cumulative
effect severely hampers every manu
facturing and assembly plant. In
June we were able to build only
29.2 per cent as many cars as we
produced in the same month in
While production is restricted, so—in
proportion—are shipments of cars to us
As production increases, we are assured
of getting our proportionate share of the
total—and as quickly as cars are received,
we will speed deliveries to our customers
