Impala. The car other car makers measure resale by.

Some car makers offer a special guarantee to fleet operators who buy cars in volume. They say they’ll pay the difference if the resale value of their products is less than the resale value of the best comparable competitive products.

What they don’t say is that the best comparable competitive products traditionally are Chevrolets .. . the best sellers and re-sellers year after year. In particular, Impala.

The ’71 Impala is the roomiest car in its field. It has a two and one  half inch longer wheelbase this year. Improved Full Coil suspension. New double-panel roof. New power ventilation system. Front power disc brakes. Turbo Hydra-matic transmission on V8 models. Power steering. Side-guard door beams. All standard.

Impala for ’71. It again sets the standard for other car makers to meet. At purchase time and resale time. That’s what we mean by putting you first.

Chevrolet: Putting you first, keeps us first.
