From the Vaults: Chevy’s Balance of Performance

According to this 1935 education video from Chevrolet, the American motorist is looking for the right balance of speed, comfort, economy, safety, and power. But no one wants to ride around in an ambulance, or a full-sized RV, or even Sir Malcolm Campbell’s record setting Bluebird. Or for real economy, you could just drive an “English pygmy” car (is that really what we called them back then?). And real power comes from a ten-ton truck, but good luck driving one of those each day.

Thankfully, Chevrolet is building cars that delivery just the right balance of all these factors. We’re not sure if this 1935 Chevy is really the ultimate road vehicle of its day, but we love seeing the Bluebird tested on a beach and that amazing RV with hand-finished woodwork, and who wouldn’t want that vintage motorcycle today?
