STYLE FAVORITES... WITH SPECTACULAR DUAL HIGH PERFORMANCE... OUTWARDLY, these new Chrysler Eights fulfill in ap pearance the very spirit of swift motion. Inwardly, they suggest the quiet luxury of a richly-ap pointed drawing room. Extreme lowness of chassis design perforce creates extreme smartness - and likewise the unusually low center of gravity inspires a sense of safety at all speeds not to be experienced in conventional motor cars of needless height. In the quick starts and sprints of traffic, these Chrysler Eights flash superbly away from everything around them. Their responsive power and getaway, their smooth ness, flexibility and effortless speed make them most fascinating to drive. Superiorperformance is due not only to their superlatively engineered high-compression straight eight power-plants, but also is the result of an exclusive Multi-Range 4-speed transmission and quick, quietgear shift,withthe great advantage of dual high gears -one for normal citydriving,flash ing getaway and speedy hill-climb ing; the other for the open road. Furthermore, in a Chrysler Eight, safe and positive control is assured under all conditions and at all speeds by weatherproof in ternal hydraulic brakes -easy to operate, sure, always equalized.
