1 Pushbutton PowerFlite. Chrysler Corporation leads the field again with the driving advance of the year! Like magic – you just push a button and go! No levers or gears to bother with. Pushbutton PowerFlite is as easy as ringing a doorbell. Its simple mechanical design has been fully tested and perfected. Why not try it today?

2 Power Steering all the time! Other cars still haven’t caught up with Chrysler Corporation’s full-time Power Steering! It helps you 60 minutes of every driving hour!

3 Extra Power Longer! No other American passenger car V-8 engines have dome-type combustion chambers!

4 Safest Brakes! Chrysler Corporation brings you the biggest advance in brakes in 25 years! Easier, surer, less adjusting, longer lining life!

5 Brightest Design Note of 1956! THE FLIGHT-SWEEP – one clean aerodynamic sweep from headlight to upswept rear fender!

You get so much more for what you pay in a car of Chrysler Corporation. See your dealer now!
