WE H&VE 10 HIDE. But we have nothing to blush about. What's under Vega's shell is a whole lot of little car. You being the careful type, we here with, offer substantiation. The thing that makes it go. OK, Vega's engine looks a lot like a car engine. But believe us, it's a real break through. Why? Because it has enough power to forge confidently ahead, even on fast moving freeways. And because it's amaz ingly quiet. And because in our highway tests, it's getting about 25 mpg (standard engine, with standard transmission). True to Chevy tradition, we think this engine will become a classic. It's that good. Oh what a lovely door. See that side-guard door beam in the door below? We put those beams in every door of O every Vega we build, for added protection. Of course, we hope our door beams will never have to come in handy. But if they MARKOFEXCELLENCEdo, they will. More hidden treasures. Again we direct your attention to our see-through Vega. Notice the seats. Ah, those seats. Carved out of foam. And quite possibly the most comfortable seats you'll ever find in a little car. And the brakes. Big ten-inch discs in front, standard. We also put two roofs on the Vega. To make it even quieter. Vega has power ventilation, too. Another thing. Vega has an electric fuel pump, hidden in the gas tank, for smoother gas flow. And, well, we could go on for hours. The moral Now, we realize that you're not going to rush out and buy a Vega because it has power ventilation. But, if you add everything up, you'll find that Vega is the best little car on the road. vEl Maybe you can't see all of Vega's advantages. -6 But you can feel them. Chevrolet.
