CLARK BUICK-PONTIAC CO. REEPORT Why we built two car; as different as for 1960,;. light and day ; On October t — for tht first time <n Chevrolet't 19-year hfyory—you will be dbk to watK into you* dealer's showroom and see'two totally different kinds of cars. I One is the conventional 1960 Chevrolet, brand new in appearane* and more beautifully refined andluxurious than you can imagine, • Tht other is unlike any car wt or anybody elte em built—the riplutionary Corvair, with the engint in tin rear where it belongs in a compact ear. • We'd like to tell fyu why we buiU two such different cart, how we built them—and for whom we built them. Why two kind* of can? Because America itself has been going through some big change* in the paat few yean. Our cities have been straining at their seams. Traffic it jam-packed. Parking space la at a premium. And our suburbs have spread like, wildfire. People are living farther from their work, driving more miles on crowded streets. There is new leisure time—but more things to do. Tbere'a a new standard of living—and more need for two can In the family garage. In abort, America's automobile needs have become so complex that no one kind of car can satisfy them completely. That is why wa at Chevrolet, keeping tab on these trends, have had a revolutionary eontpatt car in the planning stages for more than • nine years. Thus, when we decided thre«.,years ago to prepare for production of such a car we were ready to build it the way it should be built. There was no ne6d • for a hasty "crash" program that would create only a aawedroff version of a conventional car. That la why tba two cars you will aee in your d«al«r's showroom ' October 2 will be two entirely different kinds of cars. One is the conventional '60 Chevrolet—brand new in beauty, with new apace inside, new spirit under the hood, a new feeling of sumptuousneas aa luxury never before attained by any ar in its field. There U great V8 powr linked with new thrift, plus Cbvrolet's superb 6-cylinder engine. Ht is a traditional car that comes eyn closer to perfection—hi silence, In -oom, in ease of control, in velvety Hie—than any other car we have aw made. The'other is the Corvair, icompact car that la astonishingly difftent from anything ever built in this country. It has to be—because this is a siz- jxuungtr compact car, with a really remarkable performance . •',. a car designed specifically to American standards, of comfort, to American traffic needs. • Tha engine la in the reat Among the basic advantages resulting from this engine location are bettor traction on a compact 108-inch whettbass and a practically flat floor. Bit to be placed in the rear, the enghe had to be ultra light and ultra <hort. So Corvair's engine U total]/ new— mostly aluminum and air cooled; it weighs about 40 per cent less than conventional engines. It ii a "flat" horizojttally opposed six—so it is only three cylinders long . . . and that leaves a lot more room for passengers. Another weight saving: like modern airplanes, the Corvair has no frame; the bodycbaU supplies it great struc- tural strength ... it's a welded unit that is virtually rattle-free. The ride is fantastic. But to get it we had to design ind»fnnd»*t ***• pension at every whael; conventional springing would give a compact ear ft choppy ride. Right now we'll main one prediction: no othtr U.S. compact car will ride so comfortably, bold th« road so firmly and handle ao beautifully. Now there are two kinds of cart from Chevrolet—because it takes twe kinds of can to serve America's needi today. If you love luxury—the utmost in luxury—and If you want generoua interior space, breath-taking perform* ance, automatic drives and power assists—then the conventional '(• Chevrolet may be your choice, It easy parking, traffic agility and utmost economy are high oa your llat —then you should seriously consider the Corvair. But the beat thing to d« is to look these two na^ can over at your Chevrolet dealer's... take them out for a drivt. It may b« that th* only logical choice for your family between two can like thto They main a perfect pair.
