You get a lot more action on a lot less gas — Gas bills don’t have to go way up when you switch to a wagon. At least not with these. While Chrysler engineers have increased acceleration as much as 10%, they’ve also increased mileage — as much as 7%!


Try them for size! Take a demonstration drive at your favorite dealer’s next weekend. Take the whole family and see how much room is left over!

Unibody construction means fewer squeaks and rattles

What’s the secret of strength? Unity. That’s exactly what makes Unibody Construction a far superior way to build wagons.

Unibody makes body and frame a solid, one-piece unit. It eliminates the major cause of squeaks and rattles — it’s 100 percent more resistant to twisting forces than the conventional body-bolted-to-frame construction. And Unibody trims away useless bulk to give more spread-out room inside!

The upholstery can take it

You won’t have to baby this upholstery when you’re hauling kids, tools, lumber or furniture around. Most vinyl-and-fabric interiors have more than 50% of nylon warp added to them to make them last.

They’re treated with special conditioners that ward off dirt and grime. And they’re sewn with extra overlap to keep the seams from popping out. These fabrics will wear up to twice as long as ordinary upholstery fabrics.

There’s a lot less maintenance

You go 4,000 miles between oil changes . . . 32,000 miles between major lube jobs. That means you’ll only have your wagon up on the rack about eight times in three years of average driving. You’ll save over $60 in lubricants alone.

You’ll also save on repairs and replacements. Mufflers are aluminized to last twice as long as uncoated steel mufflers. Distributor points are ventilated to run cooler and last much longer.

7-soak rustproofing guards the finish

We put these wagon bodies through the industry’s most thorough rustproofing to help keep them brand-spanking new.

They go through 7 giant tanks and get more than 20 different rinses, sprays, and dips. When they leave the 7th tank, they’re set to fight off any cause of rust — Whether it comes from salted streets or the mud and gravel from a rugged hunting trip.

You get a lot more action on a lot less gas

Gas bills don’t have to go way up when you switch to a wagon. At least not With these. While Chrysler engineers have increased acceleration as much as 10%, they’ve also improved gas mileage — as much as 7%!

Along with better economy, you get better ride — Chrysler Corporation’s Torsion-Aire Ride. It’s still rated by most experts as the finest suspension system on any American car.

Vintage 1962 Plymouth Fury & its new alternator

Exclusive Alternator lengthens battery life

The batteries in these wagons will keep their “kick” a lot longer, especially in city driving.

The reason is the Alternator. It provides up to 10 amperes of charge even when the engine is idling. So there’s no drain on the battery; more power in reserve. And the longer battery life will save you plenty over a few years — around $15.00 or more for each new battery you won’t have to buy.

1968 Dodge Station Wagon with rear window washer

This rear window just washed itself. 

Not to boast, but nobody else has a feature like this. You push a button and your station wagon’s rear window goes down and gets washed. Then it comes up, and you can see out the back again. (Where people may be trying to pass you or signal you or almost anything.) You don’t have to stop and wipe the window. And it even works with the engine off.

It’s only a minor feature. All it can do is save your life. We tackled “dirty-rear-window-itis” because we knew all station wagons get dirty rear windows.

So we said to our engineers, “Do something,” They did. The option they came up with is only one of dozens that are available on Plymouth, Dodge, or Chrysler wagons.

The ’68 Chrysler station wagon from Plymouth: “Its tail gate opens up and down, side to side, and washes its own rear window. How about that, wagon fans?”

Announcing your next car: It can have a roof-mounted wind deflector that washes the rear window with air.

The great new Chrysler. Your next car can be a luxury wagon in the shape of a fuselage. You can command from the cockpit, a sweeping arc of curved glass, miniaturized lights, and wall-to-wall silence.

Behind you, a soft carpeted stowage area extends to a 2-way tailgate and power rear window.

Above the window rests a unique airfoil to direct the airstream across the glass and keep it clean. Lower the window and the airstream becomes a moving wall to keep out dust and road fumes.

Your next car can give you more comfort and convenience than you ever expected in a wagon. Soft overhead lights for both front and rear passengers. Three-speed concealed wipers. Power steering and optional power front disc brakes.

Your next car can be spacious, trustworthy, and beautiful. Your next car is here. Today. The great new Chrysler for 1969.
