Only by change do man and the factors of his civilization move from the lower to the higher state; from the cruder to the finer development. Our Chrysler engineers devote their lives to study, to analysis, to experimentation. And out of tliis constant searching and trying come the knowledge, conviction and decision that lead to progress. In announcing two complete lines of New Straight Bights, in addition to our lower-priced Chrysler. Sixes, we now register our most important change and progress —all designed, all worked for, all created to give the world better and more satisfying transportation In our progress there b no departure from fundamental principles. To maintain public approbation, we muM give ahvays liner, more dependable, more dynamic car performance—mustofferaSways greater value, as well as cars better suited to the needs of modem transport. Thus, our latest Chryslers —the new Chrysler Eight and the new Chrysler Imperial Eight — containing as they do, outstanding engineering and style improvements—are, we believe, milestones along the course of automobile progress. We are proud and eager to submit these cars to the inspection and test of the public. 3 3E CHRYSLER EIGHT: 'standard Models-Roads'.er S1M5, Coupe $1495.
