ON DISPLAY FRIDAY! HOORAY! SMALL WONDER! THE REVOLUTIONARY BY CHEVROLET U4 -' L&J There's nothing like a new car—and no compact car like this de luxe Cofvair 700, Here's the car created to conquer a new field—Chevrolet's low-priced compact Corvair. The product of nine years of research and development at the auto industry's most advanced facilities, it's America's first truly compact, economical car that retains the ride and 6-passenger comfort you're used to in a big one. The key to this small miracle: America's first and only ' modern rear-mounl^d aluminum engine—a lightweight 6 that's so revolutionary it can be packaged with the transmission and drive gears as one compact unit. By putting the engine in the rear, Chevrolet has made the floor practically flat, front and rear. There's plenty of foot room for everybody, including the passengers in the middle. Shifting engine weight to the "rear also makes for smoother, easier compact car handling and gives glued-tp-the-road traction on ice, mud or snow. Corvair's size—some 5 inches lower, 2% feet shorter and 1,300 pounds lighter than conventional sedahs-rmakest it a joy to jockey through busy streets,- a pleasure to park (no need for power assists), Its revolutionary Turbo-Air 6 gets :up to 30% more miles on a gallon of regular ,(* r eal magician on mileage). And, because the America's only ear with an airplane- type horizontal engine! America's only car with independent suspension at all 4 wheels! America's only car with an air-cooled aluminum engine! STYLING-PURE AND SIMPLE Clean, uncluttered lines shape both 4-ddor models— the de luxe Corvair 700 and the standard Corvair. Each has its own distinctive trim, and you get more visibility area than in many full-sized cars. FOLD-DOWN REAR SEAT* Works easily, instantly, adding to Corvair's versatility by enlarging rear seat cargo space to 17.6 cu. ft. The engine's in the rear iphere it belongs in a compact car! engine's air-cooled, you never haye to fuss with antifreeze, you get quicker warmup with less wear on parts even on the coldest mornings (even heat for passengers comes quicker —almost instantly—'from an airplane-type heater*), Yet, wonderfully'practical as, all this sounds, you'll find the most practical thing of all about this new Corvair is its remarkably low price. Your- dealer's the man to see for all the short, sweet details, REVOLUTIONARY TURBO-AIR 6 Gets up to 30 % more miles on a gallon, needs no antifreeze, provides quicker warmup with less wear cm parts, ONE-PACKAGE POVtfER TEAM rear engine, tranB- mission and differential together into one compact lightweight unit. Takes less room, leaves you more. FLAT FLOOR CprVair is America's only compact car with a practically flat floor, the only one with tho kind of relaxing room that U.S. • motorists are used to. UNISTRUT BODY BY FISHER Does away with conventional frame, incorporating all structure intp a rigid body-frame unit that gives you more inside , room with less weight. UNDER-HOOD LUGGAGE COMPARTMENT Trunk's up front (like an elephant's) where it's convenient for groceries, luggage. 4-WHEEL INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION There's no conventional axle- front or rear. Wheels, cushioned by coil springs, take bumps independently of each other, for smooth, road-hugging ride.
