Zing into spring! Chevrolet Impala Chevrolet Impula Super Sport ^oupe=Qne~oflwolwket-sea'ted beauties for '65^. People who buy other big expensive-looking cars One thing yOU WOn't (big expensive-looking payments) It looks like a big car. And is-by almost any 1 standard you want to apply, Width? Nobody builds a car as much as one inch wider. Length? It grew three inches this year. Roominess? Every closed models got three inches more shoulder room, front and rear, and more leg and foot room up front too. Luxury? Nice little touches like the look of mellow walnut across the Jmpala's instrument panel. And big touches. Like the fine* ness of the same Body by Fisher workman* ship that makes some g\ Amertca/s, most 'expensive cars look so expensive. How about the ride? Chevrolet engineers took the JeU smooth one and smoothed it out even more this year. Also made it more stable by widen* ing the wheel stance. Price? That's where Chevrolets fall way short of the other big expensive-looking cars. But we wouldn't have it any other way. Would you? One last question: How soon can you make a good spring buy on a Chevrolet? One last answer: Just as soon as you can get; down to ypur Chevrolet dealer's.
