Friday and Saturday Foreground: Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe Background: Chevrolet Impata Station Wagon with roof luggage earner Feels like somebody put a runway where the road should be! With engines up to a 425-hp YS* and its luxurious Jet-smooth ride, you may not notice where air travel leaves oft and a Chevrolet Impala begins. Take-offs are smooth and effortless. Hills seem flat as prairies. A big coil spring at each wheel and over 700 sound deadeners throughout the body and chassis make you feel you're hardly on the ground at all. You'll find all kinds of jet-age luxury inside an Impala's big, roomy Body by Fisher, too. Wide deep-cushioned seats, tailored with rich-looking fabrics and vinyls. Thick wall-to-wall carpeting. Soft background music from an AM-FM radio*, if you like. You can even get an automatic pilot (we call it a "speed and cruise control"*) that lets you log mile after turnpike mile without touching the accelerator. All in all, it's sky-high living at down- to-earth prices. And who but your Chevrolet dealer can offer a way to go quite like that? •op ;w *<a a <:M mi.
