OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
IGNITION SWITCH
Sound design and precision manufacturing methods
will permit you to operate your new Chevrolet in a
normal manner from its very first mile without adhering
to a formal "break-in" schedule. However, during. the
first few hundred miles of driving you can, by observing
a few simple precautions, add to the future performance
and economy of your car.
It is recommended that your speed during the first
SOD miles be confined to a maximum of 60 M.P.H ., but
do not drive for extended periods at anyone constant
speed, either fast or slow. During this period, avoid full
throttle "jack-rabbit" starts and quick, abrupt stops.
Gentle braking during the first few hundred miles of
operation will result in longer brake life and better
future performance. Avoid hard stops especially during
"the first 200 miles of operation since brake misuse
during this period will destroy much future brake efficiency. Always drive at a moderate speed until your
engine has completely warmed up.
START -Used only when starting engine. When released,
switch returns to ON.
ON-For normal operation after engine has been
started.
OFF-Turns off engine and accessories.
LOCK- Same as "OFF" except that switch cannot be
moved into or out of this position without the ignition key. Always switch to LOCK when leaving your
car unattended .
2
STARTING
DRIVING FOR ECONOMY
1.
AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION-Place control lever in
N orP position. The engine will not start in any
other position.
SYNCHROMESH TRANSMISSION - Place gearshift
control lever in Neutral and depress clutch pedal to
the floor .
2. INITIAL START -Depress accelerator to floor and release. This presets the automatic choke.
ENGINE WARM-Hold accelerator pedal about half
open.
3. Turn ignition switch to START and release as soon
as engine starts.
4 . "FLOODED" ENGINE-Depress accelerator to floor
and hold while cranking engine. Never "pump"
accelerator.
Your new Chevrolet is designed and engineered to
provide long dependable service. However, proper
maintenance and wise operation must be combined to
realize the maximum service and economy built into your
Chevrolet.
Be sure that your car is properly tuned for use with
the highest quality fuel (whether Regular or Premium),
that engine oil is of a good grade and of the proper
viscosity, that the air cleaner is serviced as recommended, and that the car is kept in good mechanical
condition.
Always drive at sensible speeds. Race type performance and economy are not possible at the same time.
Don't make "jack rabbit" starts or unnecessary fast
stops. Drive at reasonable speeds until the engine and
other moving parts of your Chevrolet have had time to
warm up.
In a word, drive sensibly. It will payoff in higher
economy, fewer repairs and increased safety.
WARM-UP
Never race the engine or drive at high speeds until
the engine has had a chance to warm up. Always let
the engine idle for a minute or two after starting and
drive at moderate speeds for several miles, especially
in cold weather. Failure to allow sufficient warm-up
time causes much unnecessary wear to the engine and
excessive speeds before axle and transmission lubricant
become warmed up can cause as much harm to these
parts.
3
1st GEAR (LOWI-Depress clutch, shift into 1st gear,
slowly release clutch pedal while pressing on accelerator. As speed increases, depress clutch pedal, reo
lease accelerator and move gearshift into 2nd gear.
2nd GEAR-Release clutch pedal and depress accelerator as above, allowing car to gain speed, then, in
same manner as before, move gearshift lever into
3rd gear.
3rd GEAR (HIGHI-Slowly release clutch pedal and depress accelerator pedal. This is the cruising gear for
all normal driving.
TO STOP-Release the accelerator and depress the
brake pedal. As car slows down, depress the clutch
pedal and move the gearshift lever into Neutral.
NEUTRAL-For use when starting or idling engine.
REVERSE-Operate as for 1st Gear but always at a slow
speed .
PUSHING TO START
• Turn on key and depress clutch pedal.
• Place gearshift lever in Neutral position until car
speed reaches 15 MPH .
• Move shift lever to 3rd position and slowly release
clutch pedClI.
Operation of the optional 4-speed transmission is
much the same as the 3-speed, with the addition of a 4th
forward gear and a different shift pattern.
4
The optional Overdrive equipment used in conjunction with the three-speed Synchromesh transmission provides an automatic fourth, or cruising, gear. At the same
road speed, the engine speed of a car in Overdrive is
22 % slower than that of a car not equipped with overdrive. This contributes greatly to fuel economy, reduced
engine wear, and quieter, more restful driving.
With handle pulled out, the overdrive is locked out
and inoperative. While the vehicle is moving the handle
may be pulled out by first stepping hard on the acceler-
ator pedal until the transmission drops into standard
drive, then pulling out the handle.
The handle may be pushed in at any time to engage
the overdrive after which it can be operated as follows:
• Above 30 miles per hour the transmission will automatically drop into Overdrive when the accelerator
pedal is momentarily released.
• When driving in second or third overdrive the transmission may be returned to standard drive for extra
acceleration for hill climbing or passing by momentarily flooring the accelerator pedal.
• Below 26 miles per hour the overdrive will automatically disengage and return to standard drive.
• While the overdrive is disengaged (below 26 or 30
miles per houri the transmission may be shifted between 2nd and 3rd gears without the use of the
clutch pedal.
• Pull the overdrive handle fully out when pushing to
start.
The Positraction Rear Axle gives you constant driving force on both rear wheels; especially helpful in the
winter and during other slippery driving conditions.
In normal use, light throttle application will supply
maximum traction. When starting with one rear wheel
on an excessively slippery surface, slight application of
the parking brake may be necessary to gain maximum
traction.
OVERDRIVE CONTROL HANDLE

Start the engine as outlined on page 3. Both automatic transmissions (optional equipment) are operated in
much the same manner. The shift quadrants are identical
except for the full right position which is LOW on the

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION DRIVING CAUTIONS
•
•
Do not accelerate engine in GR, L, D, or R with the
brakes engaged. This can cause damage byoverheating transmission.
DO NOT hold car on an upgrade by accelerating engine. Use brakes.
•
Do not use Low position (Powerglide) except for hard
pulls at low speed.
• Do not shift into Reverse or Park before coming to a
stop.

INSTRUMENTS
ROCKING CAR
"ROCK" car to escape from mud, sand or snow,
by holding down the accelerator a small amount and
moving the selector lever between "0" and "R". With
a little practice the selector lever movements may be
coordinated with the forward and backward motion of
the car.
GENERATOR INDICATOR
This indicator is a check on generator output. If the
generator is not charging the indicator will be lighted
and the cause of the trouble must be found and corrected immediately.
PUSHING TO START
• Turn on key, place the selector lever in "N" until car
reaches 25 to 30 miles per hour and move the lever
to "GR" ITurboglide} or "l" IPowerglide} position .
• When engine starts, move the selector lever to "0"
and proceed in a normal manner.
It is best never to tow the car to start.
When the engine starts, the car may accelerate into the tow car.
OIL PRESSURE INDICATOR
If this indicator remains on duri"n g normal operation
it is an indication that the oil pressure in the engine is
low and the engine should be stopped until the cause of
the low pressure is found and corrected.
NOTE:
TOWING
• Place selector lever in "N" and do not exceed 30
miles per hour.
• If transmission is not operating properly, tow with
rear wheels raised or drive shaft disconnected.
• If towing at speeds above 30 miles per hour, drive
shaft must be disconnected.
As a check on the condition of the Generator
and Oil Pressure indicator lights, both will light up
when the ignition switch is in "ON" position but before the engine is started, and while the engine is
being cranked, and then should go out a few seconds
"
after the engine starts.

CONT.ROLS
TURN SIGNAL
Move the lever up or down to indicate a right or a
left turn . The instrument panel jndicators, parking lights
and stoplights will flash to indicate the direction of the
turn. When the turn is completed the lever will return
to neutral.
If, when the turn signal lever is moved to signal a turn,
the dash indicator lights up but does not flash, check for
a burned out parking or stop lamp on that side.
Parking Brake
The foot pedal type parking brake is designed with
a built-in brake reserve for your safety. Push the parking brake pedal to engage the brake. If the pedal
moves through its entire stroke to the "stop," further
strokes are necessary. Normally a single stroke of the
pedal will provide proper brake application. The pedal
returns to normal position after each stroke.
The brake release handle will pop out about two
inches as a visual indication that the brake is applied.
Pull on this handle to release the brakes.
The brake alarm light, if installed, is located in the
oil and generator indicator instrument and is illuminated when the brake is applied.
Safety Hint-use the turn signal as a
flashing caution light when stopped beside
the highway at night.
BRAKES
The Brake pedal is of the pendant type, providing
ample footroom and extra leverage for easy safe stops.
Power Brakes
CAUTION: One stroke of
the parking brake pedal ;s
usually all that is necessary
for proper parking brake
application. If extra strokes
are needed, have your
Chevrolet dealer check the
brake adjustment.
.optional power brakes make use of engine vacuum
to help you bring your car to a stop with much less
braking effort than needed with regular brakes. It may
be wise to make several trial stops to familiarize yourself with their easier operation.
A built-in vacuum reserve supplies one power assisted stop should the engine stall, after which additional
foot pressure will be needed for brake response.

For winter operation, use G. M. Windshield Washer
Anti-freeze and prewarm the windshield using the heater
defrosters before attempting to use the washers in
freezing weather.
Fill only % full in winter to allow expansion if
water freezes.
WINDSHIELD WIPERS AND WASHERS
Wipers
Turn the single speed wiper control knob clockwise
to start, counterclockwise to stop.
The optional two speed wiper is operated in a like
manner, but has three switch positions, OFF, SLOW
and FAST.
POWER STEERING
Chevrolet optional Power Steering is designed to
reduce steering effort without losing the so-called "feel"
of manual steering. In operation, Power Steering will
supply about 80 % of the effort needed to turn the
front wheels.
Washers
Windshield wipers are optional with the single speed
wiper while the optional two speed wiper motor is equipped with an integral washer mechanism.
Operate the washers by pressing the button in the
center of the wiper control knob or stepping on the foot
pedal at your left foot . This will send water or other cleaning agent onto the windshield and will also start the wiper
motor. Foot pedal operated models will stop the wipers
automatically. Wipers on the push button operated models
must be turned off manually.
Keep the water container under the hood filled at all
times. Avoid operating the washer when jar is empty.
G. M. Windshield Washer Solvent added to the water
aids in cutting road film and grease from the windshield.
POWER WINDOWS
If your car is equipped with optional power operated windows, an electrical switch will replace the
manual window crank at each window. Move the switch
"up" to raise the window, "down" to lower the window. A master switch on the driver's door operates any
or all of the windows in the car. See page 17 for electrically operated tail gate window on station wagons.

MAINTENANCE AND LUBRICATION
I
Except for the folding top, the convertible model is
operated in the same manner as other Chevrolet Passenger Cars. For top and rear window operation consult the booklet "How to Operate the Folding Top"
received with your car . For continued trouble free
operation of the folding top, . clean and lubricate the lift
cylinder rods with Super No. 11 brake fluid every
5000 miles.
Polishing Your Car
Your Chevrolet is finished with Magic Mirror Acrylic
Lacquer. A thorough washing is generally all that is
required to maintain a "new car" appearance. However,
if the car is to be polished make certain that the label
of the cleaner or polish used states that the product is
suitable for use on acrylic lacquer finishes. Any tar or road
oil remover used should indicate on the label that it is
harmless to Acrylic finishes. G . M. Tar and Road Oil Remover has been especially compounded for this purpose .
EXTERIOR APPEARANCE
Wast.ing Your Car
, The best way to preserve the original beauty of the
finish of your Chevrolet is to keep it clean. Calcium
Chloride and other salts, road tar, excretion from insects, tree sap, chemicals from factory chimneys and
other foreign matter may permanently damage both
paint. and bright metal parts. Regular frequent washings
and a thorough cleaning after exposure to any of the
above is recommended. Wash the car in either warm or
cold (never hot) water; never in the direct rays of the
sun; and always wait until the sheet metal surfaces have
cooled before beginning. Never wipe off dust and dirt
when surfaces are dry since this may scratch the finish.
Protection of Exterior Bright Metal Parts
All bright metal parts of the car should be regularly
cleaned and protected against the same substances
harmful to th.e painted surfaces. Normally, washing with
water is all that is required. However, G. M. Chrome
Polish may be used on CHROME or STAINLESS STEEL
trim if necessary. Use special care with ALUMINUM
trim. Never use auto or chrome polish, steam or any
caustic soap to clean aluminum. Wash only with lukewarm water, and if necessary, a mild soap. Rinse well
and dry thoroughly.
19
INTERIOR APPEARANCE
It is recommended that all bright metal parts of your
Chevrolet, after being thoroughly cleaned, be given a
Dust and Dirt-Clean the interior of your car frequently,

CHECKING OIL LEVEL
Use the following table to guide yo,u in your selection of oil for your Chevrolet during the various seasons
of the year. lIse oil designated "For Servic:e MS" or
"For Service DG" in your Chevrolet.
Regardless of the change interval being followed
check the oil level on the dipstick regularly. This level is
satisfactory if it falls anywhere between the marks FULL
and ADD OIL. It is not necessary to keep the level at the
FULL mark. Capacity of the various Chevrolet engines

Therefore, during freezing weather, you should protect
the cooling system with a "permanent" type anti-freeze.
Should you decide to use ordinary alcohol type antifreeze, it will be necessary to replace the thermostat
with a 160· "low temperature" thermostat. It may be
necessary to add to the solution from time to time since
this type will boil away quickly during warm spells.
Whichever type you use, check the anti-freeze content
of your radiator regularly.
Drain and flush the cooling system of your Chevrolet
every spring and fall. Check the coolant level in the
radiator regularly and maintain its level one inch below
the filler cap.
CAUTION: The radiator is equipped with a
pressure type radiator cap. When removing cap, turn a quarter of a turn to allow
the pressure to escape before turning
the cap all the way off. In extremely hot
weather or after a long, hard drive, always allow the engine to cool for several
minutes before attempting to remove the
pressure radiator cap. Under such conditions, the coolant in the radiator might
be above the boiling point and the sudden lowering of the pressure caused by
removing the cap may cause the solution
to boil and gush out of the radiator.
In the spring renll with water to which a good rust
inhibitor such as G. M. Anti-rust and Water Pump Lubricanf has been added. In the fall, in mild climates, follow
the same procedure.
In cold climates it is necessary to refill with the
correct proportion of fresh anti-freeze and water to
protect against the lowest expected temperature.
Your Chevrolet is equipped with a 170· thermostat.
(A 180 0 thermostat is available as optional equipment.)
. NOTE: To completely drain the cooling system,
open the drain cock at the right front side
of the radiator, remove the drain plug
at the left rear side of the 6-cylinder
biock or centered on each side of the
V-8 block just above the oil pan. Be sure
to close the drain cock and replace the
drain plugs before refilling the cooling
system.

CHEVROLET OWNER PROTECTION POLICY
The Chevrolet Motor Division considers it a most important obligation to offer
each owner a comprehensive maintenance service which will relieve him of any
anxiety and insure that his vehicle is regularly inspected and maintained.
Your Chevrolet dealer has presented you with a Chevrolet Owner Protection
Policy Booklet. The Approved M.a intenance and Lubrication Service detailed in
this Policy Booklet has been worked out by Chevrolet service personnel and
covers items to be checked, inspected, adjusted and lubricated at mileage
intervals up to 12,000 miles. All maintenance operations which are necessary
at the varying mileages on a vehicle operating under normal conditions are
included.
If the services are carried out at the prescribed mileage, wear and owner
expense will be kept to a minimum. Further services may become necessary as
mileage accrues, however, the regular visit that you make to your Chevrolet
dealer in following this Policy will point out desirable services as they become
necessary.
