Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 26, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa CHEVROLETS NEW EFFICIENCY SYSTEM POR 1975 it s the key part of a program aimed at helping our new cars run leaner (more economically), run cleaner and save you money every mile. The Efficiency System is standard on all 1975 Chevrolets with V8 or 6-cylinder engines. It’s a series of significant engineering improvements working together for the very first time. Components include High Energy Ignition, catalytic converter, Early Fuel Evaporation and steel-belted radial ply fires. In sum, the System is designed to heighten the pleasure and lower the cost of driving a 1975 Chevrolet—to bring you a better running car in many ways, along with improved fuel economy, more miles between recommended maintenance and an engine that stays cleaner internally because of no-lead fuel. Your Chevrolet dealer will gladly give you the details and answer your questions. See him and the sensible 1975 Chevrolets starting September 27. CHEVROLET MAKES SENSE FOR AMERICA MONZA 2*2 The small car of tomorrow w ill probably be a little more powerful, handy and comfortable than ever. The 1975 Monza 2-f 2, shown above, offers this today. It has advances like rectangular headlights set in a soft front end, fold-down rear seat, and a new 4.3-litre VS engine available. NOU* In the background above, our new Nova LN Sedan. A luxurious Nova with thick carpeting and wide-back reclining front seats. For 1975, all Novas have been emphatically refined along the lines of elegant European sedans. Nova’s always been good. Now it's beautiful. CHEVELLE Mid-size, easy to drive, room for six, mid-priced, strong reputation for value. America’s most popular intermediate. CAMARO Our sensibly sporty compact. It looks like a million and drives like it looks. WAGONS big ones, small ones, in-between ones. Practical wagons that make sense for America. And you. MONTECARLO Its special ability: making you feel good. About the way it kxiks and drives. About your own taste and judgment. IMPALA America’s favorite car continues to provide the room many families need plus plenty of quiet and comfort. Still the great American value. suggests: Thin 1'hrintmaH, The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Thars., Sept. 28, 1174 Sidewalk, Sewer, Street Light Projects Approved Seattle Nov. IK-21.
