EXTRA LIBERAL TRADE-IN ALLOWANCE FOR YOUR OLD UNSAFE TIRES TO ; CELEBRATE THIS EVENT! O.K. Rubber Welders R. H. Godsty Here's why "Valve-in-Heod Is Far Ahead" in all-round efficiency 1 In the world's champion Chevrolet engine, the valves are located in the head of the cylinder, directly over the pislons . . . henca the name, Valve-in-Head. O Valve-in-Head design provides faster intake of fuel mixture ... and quicker and more complete exhaust of burned oases ... all of which contributes to heller per- formanco and economy. 3 Valve-ln-Head dosign also permits a more compact combustion chamber; and this, together wilh Chevrolet's "Blue Flame" combustion, means more driving power lor the pistons—less in performance and economy... in ruggedness and reliability! hoat loss—and maximum economy. 4 VaEve-in-Head engines are inherently easier to cool; and Chevrolet's individual cooling ol cylinders pro- vcnls waslo of powor—pro- motes officiant operation — prolongs enQina life. Moreover, with alt of tha valve mechanism on top of Iho engine —and therefore readily accos- sihln — service, Ihough seldom needed, is extraordinarily easy and economical. Automotive experts and millions of motorists agree: Valve-m-Head U far oneod because it gives an ouWandmg combination of performance, endurance, dependability and economy. , . . Chevrolet—master builder of this master motor— has proved this by producing more than 20 million Valvc-m-Head engines during the past thirty-seven years—engines which" hold the distinction of having delivered more billions of miles of satisfaction, to more owners, over a longer period, than any other power-plant built today!
