How to save money on a wagon without really trying Economy comes built-in with these '62 wagons from Chrysler Corporation. Here's how they save you money.., automatically. Exclusive Alternator lengthens battery life The batteries in these wagons will keep their "kick" a lot longer, especially in city driving. The reason is the Alternator. It provides up to 10 amperes of charge even when the engine is idling. So there's no drain on the battery; more power in reserve. And the longer battery life will save you plenty over a few years-around $15.00 or more for each new battery you won't have to buy. Unibody Con struction means fewer squeaks and rattles What's the secret of strength? Unity. That's exactly what makes Unibody Con struction a far supe rior way to build wagons. Unibody makes body and frame a solid, one piece unit. It elimi nates the major cause of squeaks and rattles-it's 100 per cent more resistant to twisting forces than the conventional body-bolted-to frame construction. And Unibody trims away useless bulk to give more spread-out room inside!
