"Class Five (259 to 305 cu. in.) and Class Four (213 to 259 cu. in.) were all Chavrolets. The new fuel-injection Class Five Cho#ies reached speeds up to 131.076 m.p.h., took the first 33 places in a 38-car field. In acceleration Chevies got up to 85.006 m.p.h., took the first 18 places ahead of a lone Ford. In the Class Four flying mile, Chevies reached 102.157 m.p.h. and finished one-two-three. Only in Class. Four acceleration were they upset. A Nash Rambler was timed in 71.785 m.p.h. But Chevrolet finished in the next six places. Big Three. For specators interested in true showroom models—minus any special power packs and equipped with automatic transmission, single carburetors and stahd- ard exhausts—Daytona/s most significant event was the special "Big Three" competition between Chevrolet, Ford and Plymouth: Again, Chevrolet finished one-two-three with a top speed of 118.460 m.p.h., nearly 7 m.p.h. faster than the nearest Ford, which finished fourth. The fastest Plymouth trailed in eighth, place. In the 160-mile beach- and-road race for new convertibles Atlanta's Tim Flock 1 set a NASCAR record of 101.32 m.p.h. in a 335-h.p. Mercury. Before the last trial was timed, enough statistics were logged for an imaginative adman to make even the also- rans sound like world-beaters. But Chevrolet and Pontiac had easily been the week's winners, and the Chevrolet- mokers could claim to have reached an automotive milestone: the first U. S. stock auto engine that can put one horsepower for each cubic inch of displacement without benefit of a supercharger." i 1953-1954-1955 MODELS > In Trade On New 7957 Chevrolets < . .. ™™ ON HAND NOW: 1957 BEL-AIR AND 210 SERIES IN 2-DOOR, 4-DOOR, AND STATION WAGON MODELS TOP TRADE-IN DEAL ON THE TOP CAR SW Of Courthpgse Square
