It is difficult to, imagine more convincing proof of Chevrolet's superiority, lor such clear-cut and overwhelming preference can lead to but one conclusion: Chevrolet trucks must be better, must enjoy solid advantages over other trucks. Such preference must rest on a firm foundation of good, sound value. And, of course, it does—as owners of Chevrolet trucks can testify. Chevrolet trucks are widely known and preferred for their ability to hold hauling and delivery costs down. They are known for their power, their stamina, for their exceptional gas and oil economy, as well as their low-cost upkeep. And on these same counts, you can expect 1953 Chevrolet trucks to be even more outstanding. So before you buy any truck, see how much more Chevrolet trucks offer you. Stop in and see us soon.
