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 compartments.
