Andrews, whose leg was amputated at the hip Sunday at the state hospital following embolism, is critical, and relatives wers summoned Mandaju The only low-priced car and what a difference that makes in performance and dependability Simple as a Shock Absorber! Chevrolet's "fully-enclosed" Knee-Action is in reality a gigantic "shock absorber," built solidly on to Chevrolet's big, heavy frame, with the front wheel anchored to the "shock absorber" arm. The result: When the front wheel comes in contact with a bump or hole, it rises or falls to absorb the shock. In a Chevrolet, you not only get the gliding ride at its best, you also get several other Knee-Action advantages not found in any other low-priced car! The reason: Chevrolet's Knee-Action is of a very special kind. The patents on it are held exclusively by General Motors. In this construction, the coil spring, -which is the heart of the mechanism, is safely anfl solidly enclosed in a heavy steel housing to keep out dirt and flying stones. What's more, the design of this type is such that the steering mechanism is completely divorced from the spring action, the result being a new and welcome type of shock-proof steering. Admittedly these "fully-enclosed" Knee-Action wheels are more expensive to produce than other types. But Chevrolet feels that the extra satisfaction thus assured for Chevrolet owners is well worth the extra manufacturing cost. And this same attitude is responsible for the presence of many other "fine-car" features in the new Chevrolet: the large* roomy Fisher body. The new Y-K frame. The cable-controlled brakes. In fact, everything about this automobile reflects 'Chevrolet's well-known policy: to build the most cars, by building the best cars of low price! CHEVROLET MOTOR COMPANY, DETROIT, MICH.
