This variety was first tried here in 1932 by Guy Barton, near Buffalo Center; George Peterson, Titonka; John Origer, "Whittemore; and E. A. Droessler, Bancroft.

There is only one type of body construction which Chevrolet will permit on the chassis of the cars it builds: That's the type which every test—and every experiment—and every experience has proved to be the safest, strongest, and best. Not steel alone, because steel alone is not enough. But a Fisher body of steel reinforced by hardwood! The very same kind of construction used on practically all the highest-priced cars in America. If you're thinking of buying a new low-priced car, better watch this matter of bodies, and watch it : carefully. Insist on steel reinforced by hardwood! Fortunately, the only low-priced car with this pre- I ferred type of body is also the only car with a proven valve-in-head six; with Fisher Ventilation; Cushion- j Balanced Power; a Starterator. That car is Chev! rolet—America's most economical automobile. • CHEVROLET MOTOR CO.; DETROIT; MICHIGAN •MOTCvW^Uw.-...... fl~-y«* *WW v,x j i w*;-^isyfS3» ^^ HARDWOOD REINFORCEMENT STRONG , SAFE BODY BY FISHER KOHLHAAS BROS., Distributor*!
