THURSDAY JANUARY 18, 1934 Improved and Larger Car introduced to Blythe- viHe Public Today. , The neu- 1934 Chevrolet was plac- *« °" display at the showrooms of the Shcuse-UWt Chevrolet Co., corner o! Walnut and Railroad streets, here today, after scores of IXropie had been given demonstration rides about the city and on nearby country roads. Among the most Important im PWfmehts In the new model arc the "luiee action" wheels, 80-horse power "Blue Streak" engine, long er wheelbase, and more efficient stream-lining. Both front and rear seat passengers are insulated from road shocks by the introduction of independent front wheel suspension—known as "knee action" wheels—combined Tfith greatly improved rear spring suspension an'd a more balancec distribution of weight. The improved riding qualities are present at til speeds and under all roac conditions, but the greatest improvement is noticeable at high speeds and on rough roads. Steering stability is also greatly improved by the new system and wheel ngnt is-completely eliminated its manufacturers say. ' Tne Increased power delivered by the r»w "Blue Streak" engine results In higher s}>=ed and improved acceleration. Tne maximum speed %£* "**' car Is w mlles 1** tour. Otner engine improvements have been made to make It quieter and more economical. The engine has been placed several inches farther forward in tire chassis and seating has been rearranged so a s to provide more space for both front and rear seat passengers. The wheelbase of tine new car is 112 inches. In the 1934 models the Fisher Nc- praft ventilation is again featured m all closed body types, and (he same beaver tail design and flowing stream lines which characterized the previous closed bodies are continued in modifications. the 1934 line with Production on the new models is being increased daily and the local dealers expect, that within a short time they will have a complete line in stock.
