National Geographic : 1931 Mar
CHRYSLER EIGHT COUPE 01495, F. O. B. FACTORY SILENT... SWIFT... SMOOTH DUAL HIGH GEARS GIVE FASCINATING RESULTS THERE is a deep and lasting satisfaction in owning one of the new Chrysler Straight Eights - for they are fascinating in performance, distinguished in appearance and safe at all speeds. Chrysler eight-cylinder smooth ness gives a fascination to per formance that is remarkable not only in power, but in the results of an exclusive Multi-Range 4-speed transmission with Dual High gears. You have the driv ing pleasure of two distinctly dif ferent high gears-one quiet "high" for thesprints of traffic and speedy hill-climbing, another quiet "high" for the open road. Shift ing back and forth, either up or down between these two "highs", may be done at any speed without hesitation or clashing. Marked distinction and smart ness are due to the graceful design of their strong insulated steel bodies in combination with an extremely low center of gravity. Low-swung car weight makes pos sible a perfection of balance that assures better performance, finer riding qualities and greatest safety at all speeds. A constant sense of safety is also inspired by the positive con trol of internal hydraulic brakes. At the national automobile shows, and everywhere, all public comment supports the fact that these are the outstanding motor cars of 1931.
