the Choice of Champions–is Exclusive to Chevrolet in the Low-Price Field

[[IMAGE]] All the outstanding motor performances of recent years, on land, and water, and in the air, testify to the fundamental superiority of valve-in-head engine design.

Consider the fact that the airplane industry standardizes practically one hundred per cent  on this design, because of its dependability and economy. All the winners of the 500-mile Indianapolis Speedway Classic for the past nine years have driven cars powered with the
valve-in-head type engine, and the victorious "Miss America" speedboats have all employed the same principle.

Year after year, Chevrolet has concentrated on the development and improvement of valve-in-head advantages, and in the 1936 Chevrolet cars, which are breaking all sales records and setting new marks for economy, valve-in-head once more proves it is the "choice of champions."



"Miss America X," world's fastest boat (record, 124.91 m.p.h.), uses valve-in-head type engine.


Douglas Transports depend on valve-in-head power.


"ChinaClipper," valve-in-head powered, flies 18,000 miles to Philippines and return.
