WHY CHRYSLER CANT BE COPIED
For fire years the motor car industry has
striven unceasingly to earn hue and over
take Chrysler—yet all its best efforts and
most persistent ambitions to that end
have fallen for short of their goal.
As time rolls on* it becomes more and
more manifest thatChryslerperformance
can't be copied—that only Chrysler engi
neering and Chrysler manufacturing
methods can produce Chrysler results.
Chrysler results are uncopiable because
Chrysler engineering is of an entirely
new school of thought, because Chrysler
ingenuity is free from the hindering
and hampering influence of out-dated
and hide-bound traditions.
Chrysler results ere uncopiable, too, be
cause Chrysler has the great manufactur
ing advantage of plant equipment as new
and up-to-date as the Chrysler car itself.
So Chrysler goes marching on, strength
ening its leadership, maintaining a wide
margin of superiority in performance
demonstrating a virile fleetness, an eager
spirit, an unwavering stamina and an un
ruffled smoothness other cars find impos
sible to equal or even approximate.
