I -.: ,,3^ Safe — Confidential — Friendly Algona Member Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Two things that make for SAFER driving J t The first and most important thing is you — the driver. The courtesy, care, and common sense you show- count more than anything else. The second thing is the car itself. 'All cars are safer today. That's shown by the number of accidents in relation to the number of miles passenger cars are driven. The figure's down sharply. Chevrolet has always made safety a major consideration, introducing many such features as the all-steel top, into its field. And this '56 Chevrolet is the safest one over built. Its lively new power means safer passing. Its special Ball-Race steer.' ing-oversize brakes with Anti-Dive control-bring easier, surer driving. The Unisteel construction and safety door latches of its Fisher Body— the nailed-to-the-road stability that comes from advanced suspension and better balance — the sweeping panoramic windshield — all these tilings add to your safety. Seat belts with or without shoulder harness? Instrument panel padding? Of course, they're available at extra, cost. As your Chevrolet dealer, we'll be glad to show you the many safety features of the '56 Chevrolet. KOS SOUTHWEST OF COURTHOUSE SQUARE MOTOR CO. PHONE 200 t
