There's even more to
than meets the eye!
This is beauty ith a bonus ... for Chevrolet
styling is designed to add safety and comfort
while you drive, and to return greater value
when you trade.
Truly modern lines are shaped by usefulness. You
can see what we mean in the deep crystal curve of
Chevrolet's Sweep-Sight windshield ... a dramatic
style note, certainly, but one that stems from the need
for wider, safer vision. Or take high-set taillights
they add to the impressive length of line ... but
they are up where they can be seen for safety's sake.
The smart louvers across the hood aren't just dec
oration ... they mark the intake for the High-Lev el
ventilation system for cleaner, fresher air. And the
whole shape of the body its lowness, the dipped belt
line is merely a reflection of a lowered center of
giaviry, the added stability.
This is truly functional styling that serves you
better every mils, and preserves its value against the
distant day when you trade. This is Body by Fisber
another Chevrolet exclusive in the low-price field.
Come in and let us demonstrate that this new Chev
rolet is just as exciting to drive as to look at!

WINSTON tastes good
like a cigarette should !
O No wonder Winston's winning so many
friends so fast! College smokers found
flavor in a filter cigarette when they found
Winston. It's got real tobacco flavor!
Along with, finer flavor, Winston also
brings you a finer filter. The exclusive
Winston filter works so effectively, yet
doesn't "thin" the taste or flatten the flavor.
