Chevrolet Announces New 1934 Models
Chevrolet today announced "the world's lowest-priced six-cylinder
car" with the introduction of the new improved 1934 Standard
Six models, supplementing the Master Chevrolet models previously
presented. The new cars are replete with major improvements designed
to achieve better performance, riding qualities, comfort, and appearance.
Both chassis and body have been completely redesigned in keeping
with the latest advances in engineering and styling. Roadability
and especially stability have been enhanced through the adoption
of a wider chassis frame and more widely spaced leaf spring front
and rear, in conjunction with a longer front axle and increased
tread of the front wheels. These chassis improvements have permitted
the use of big, roomy bodies having maximum width and ample leg
room. In the power plant, smoothness, economy and flexibility have
been improved through a thorough revision of the inlet and exhaust
systems, with higher compression, and a refined valve and tappet
mechanism including a redesigned camshaft. The new models share
with the Master series such appearance features as sleek, flowing
lines, deep fenders hugging the tires, long hoods with horizontal
louvres, and steeply inclined radiator grilles. Numerous interior
refinements similarly enhance the style and finish of the passenger
