CHRYSLER CORPORATION'S LOW-PRICED COMPACT CAR FOR 1961
 
Just about a year ago people discovered how to make instant fun. All you do is to take one new Valiant, add small amounts of regular gasoline, and presto, you're set for a bundle of enjoyment! Valiant is a remarkable compact car. It was less than one year old when it bit off more than any other compact can could chew. First, it won a national styling award as the best looking automobile on four wheels. Then it dashed down to Daytona Beach to take the first seven places in a compact race–without even breathing hard. Now, that kind of muscle showing does not usually add up to economy ... in most cars. You'd think that Valiant would quit while it was ahead. Oh, no! Undaunted, Valiant entered the 1960 Mobilgas Economy Run and–you guessed it–out-misered both of the other new compact cars. Here's a car to reckon with. And to love. Who can hope to compete with a triple threat like this–beauty, performance and economy? That's Valiant. And now it's better than ever for 1961, with two great series–the thrifty V-100's and the beautifully-appointed V-200's.

There is so much to tell you about the 1961 Plymouth–things you may have trouble believing if you have never driven one. Of course you don't have to drive one to appreciate its solid beauty a glance at the opposite page tells you instantly that Plymouth's new styling: is a harmony of motion, momentarily stilled in sleek steel and bright aluminum. And when you see it on the street-man, oh-man here's a car to make heads turm in any neighborhood. Yes, the solid beauty of Plymouth is, in itself, enough to make you eager to buy it but, when you discover the sound engineering behind that beauty, wild horses won't keep you from your nearest dealer. Chrysler Corporation engineers have created what might seem to be impossible–a car that's small in price and low in gas consumption yet is roomy in size and high in performance. This is not accidental. It took years to develop the rigid Unibody that practically abolishes any hint of twist, bend, groan, or rattle. It took new manufacturing techniques to develop a revolutionary rustproof treatment of Plymouth bodies. It took real engineering leadership to develop far-sighted improvements such as Torsion-Aire, Push-Button Drive and Total-Contact brakes. All these things, and more, are a part of the 1961 Plymouth. When you add it oll up, 1961 is the year to buy Plymouth.

Sport Suburban

Whether it's a load of Boy Scouts off for camp, a load of lumber for the den, or a load of stones for the patio, the Plymouth is not only America's handiest hauler, but America's most beautiful station wagon. Its sleek and graceful lines conceal its great utility, make it at home in the finest surroundings. And whether you haul people or potatoes you ought to find out what Plymouth's Unibody construction does for a station wagon. It makes these wagons unbelievably rigid. The all-welded body-frame creates tremendous space inside. On these two pages you see typical Suburban beauties in three series: the exciting, luxurious Sport Suburban, the handsomely-styled, moderately priced Custom Suburbans and the low-priced Deluxe Suburbans. There are nine choices in the 1961 Suburban line to fit any purse or purpose in a total of 14 eye-cathing colors.
