throttle starts and, if possible, abrupt stops.
will permit you to operate your new Chevrolet 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.
• Gentle braking during the first few hundred miles
of operation will result in longer brake life and better
future performance. A void hard stops especially during
the first 200 miles of operation since brake misuse during
this period will destroy much future brake efficiency.
• It is recommended that your speed during the first
500 miles be confined to a maximum of 60 M.P.H., but
do not drive for extended periods at anyone constant
• Always drive at a moderate speed until the engine has
completely warmed up.
DRIVING FOR ECONOMY
Proper maintenance and wise opera60n will combine
to help you achieve max imum fuel economy with your
Chevrolet. Your Authorized Chevrolet Dealer can prop~
erly tune and maintain your car but wise operation is
your responsibility. Give the car sufficient wann~up
time, do not make full throttle starts or needless sudden
stops, and drive at reasonable speeds and as steadily as
traffic permits to gain the benefits of all the economy built
into your Chevrolet.

DRIVING WITH THE POWERGLIDE AUTOMATIC TR4.NSMISSION
The PowergHde transmiss ion is a completely automa tic transm ission which replaces
the standard clutch and transmission. After starting the engine with the selector lever in
N (Neutral) or P (Park) position, select the range desired and depress the accelerator.
The tran sm ission will do the rest. A gradual start with a steady increase of pressure on
the accelerator pedal will enabJe th e transmiss ion to shift into the more economical
cruising gear in the shortest possible time. Hard acceleration for fast starts will cause
the transmission to remain in low gear for a conSiderably longer period with resultant
higher fuel consumpti on. On the Super-Sport model the Powerglide shift lever is floor
mounted as shown at the right. The lever may be shifted freely from N (Neutral) to
D (Drive) . Press lightly on tl,e shift lever button (located on top of the shift handle)
with the palm of your hand as you shift into or out of L (Low) or R (Reverse). Force

Holding Car on an Upgrade
When stopped on an upgrade. maintain your pos ition by applying the brakes. Never hold the car in place
by accelerating engine. This could cause damage by
overheating the transmission. For the same reason, the
engine should never be accelerated in L, D or R with
the brakes engaged.

of 35 miles per hour or less under most conditions.
However, the drive shaft must be disconnected or the
car towed on its front wheels if 1) Tow speeds in
excess of 35 mph are necessary, 2) Car must be towed
for extended distances (over 50 miles) or, 3) Transmission is not operating properly. If car is towed on
its front wheels, the steering wheel should be secured
to maintain a straight ahead position.
Pushing to Start
Turn off all electrical loads such as radio, heater and,
if possible, lights until the engine stalis.
\Vith the ignition key turned ON and the transmission in N (neutral), allow the car speed to reach 25 to
30 miles per hour. Then shift the transmission to L
(low) position. After the engine starts, the transmission
may be operated in the norma1 manner. Never tow the
car to start.

INSTRUMENTS
The instruments, gauges and warning
lights conveniently grouped in the instru~
ment cluster are designed to tell you at a
glance many important things about the
performance of your car, The information
on this and the following two pages will
enable you to more quickly understand
and properly interpret these instruments. Familiarize
yourself with their location and purpose and make it a
practice to scan the instrument cluster as you start the
engine, after it starts, and periodically as you drive.
FUEL GAUGE
This electrically operated gauge indicates the level of fuel in the fuel
tank. The gauge reg isters correctly when the ignition switch is in the "on"
position, \¥hen the ignition switch is turned "off," the needle will not
necessaril.y return to the empty mark but may stop at any point on the dial.

The speedometer indicates the speed of the
car in miles per hour. The odometer, or mileage
ind icator, registers accumulated mileage and is
useful for checking trip mileages, maintenance
periods and fuel consumption,
ENGINE TEMPERATURE INDICATOR LIGHTS
These indicator Jights are provided in th e instrument cluster to indicate
a Donnal operating engi ne temperature and also quickly warn of an overheated engine. With the ignition switch in the START position, both the
red ( hot) and the green (cold) indicator lights will go on to let you
know that they are operating properly.
\Vhen the engine is started, the red light will tum off immediately. It
will light up at no other time unless for some reason the engine reaches a
dangerously high operating temperature. If the red light should come on,
the engine must be stopped until the cause of the overheating is corrected.
The green light will remain on only until the engine reaches its Donnal
operating temperature and will then go out.
Check these lights frequently as you drive. Engine temperature is
normal as long as both the red and green lights are off.
GENERATOR INDICATOR LIGHT
OIL PRESSURE INDICATOR LIGHT
This indicator light provides a quick check on the
generating system of your Chevrolet. The red light will
be on when the ignition key is in the "on" position, but
before the engine is started. After the engine starts,
the light should go out and remain out. If the light
remains on when engine is running, have your Authorized
Chevrolet Dealer check the electrical system as soon
as possible.
This light will be on when the ignition switch is
turned on but before the engine is started. Occasionally
the light may be seen to Ricker momentarily, but this
will do no harm. However, if the light remains on during
nonnal driving speeds, the engine should be stopped until
the cause of the trouble can be located and corrected.
Driving the car with low oil pressure can cause serious
engine damage.

HEADLIGHT BEAM INDICATOR LIGHT
The headlights of your Chevrolet h ave two sets of
beams to provide you with proper night~time visibility
durin g all driving conditions. The «low" beams are used
during most city driving. The "high" beams are especially
useful when drivin g on dark roads since they provide
excellent long range illumination . The headlight beam
indicator will be on wh enever the hi gh beams or "brights"
are in use. The Headlight Beam Switch controls the h eadlight beams (see Page 13). Always "dim" your headlights
- switch to "low" be.'1m- when approachi ng other cars.
PARKING BRAKE INDICATOR LIGHT
The parkin g brake warn ing light, when installed, will
flash ( jf the ign ition key is in the "on" position) whenever
the parking b rake is applied to warn you to release the
parking brake lever before at tempting to drive your
Chevrolet. Operation of the parking brake is covered on
Page 14 of this book.
SUPER SPORT MODEL INSTRUMENTS AND GAUGES
Vacuum Gauge
The vacuum gauge, installed in all Super Sport models not
equipped with a tachometer, indicates the engine manifold vacuum
readin g.
Tachometer
The optional Tachometer. when installed in place of the Vacuum
Ga uge on Super Sport models, indicates the speed of the engine
in revolutions per minute. The yellow area on the face of the
tachometer indicates the highest recommended engine rpm. Regular engine operation causing tachometer indications in or above
the red area C:'1n lead to serious engine damage.
10
Ammeter
The ammeter shows the rate at which the battery is being charged or discharged. The Deleotron charging system is equipped with a regulator which
controls the ch arge according to battery requirements. \Vhen the Deleotron
generator is supplying more than the current clemand, the ammeter will show
the charging rate while a discharge will be shown if the current demand is
more than the Delcotron output. With the battery fully charged, the charging
rate will be low, thus giving an indication of battery condition.
Engin e Temperature Gauge
ShO\ving engine coolant temperature, gauge readings will vary with air
temperature and operating conditions. Hard driving or prolonged idling in
very hot weather may produce above nonnal readings. The ignition switch
must be on for accurate readings.
Oil Pressure Gauge
The oil pressure gauge indicates the
pressure at which oil is being delivered to
the various parts of the engine requiring
lubrication. Pressures registered by the
gauge may vary according to outside air
temperatures or weight of oil being used.
Oil pressure of a cold engine being operated
at a given speed wil1 be somewhat higher
than when the engine is at nonnal operating
temperature at the same speed. Prolonged
high speed operation on a hot day at the
given speed will result in somewhat lower
oil pressure readings.
Super Sport Clock
The Super Sport rally-type clock,
its face designed for both twelve and
twenty-four hour readings, is located on
the center console. The clock is also
calibrated for accurate minute and second indications.
Setting and adjusting is accomplished in the same manner as for docks
used on other models (See page 22).

allow for expansion if the temperature should fall low
enough to freeze the solution.
WINDSHIELD WASHER
On cars equipped with a windshield washer. the
operating button is located in the center of the wiper
control knob. Pressing the button will send a measured
amount of water or other cleaning agent onto the
windshield and will also cause the wiper knob to tum,
thus starting the wiper motor, The wiper will then continue to operate until manually turned off at the wiper

required. However, C. 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.
EXTERIOR APPEARANCE
Your Chevrolet is finished with General Motors
"Magic-Mirror" acrylic lacquer. This is a finish of maximum
beauty which, in depth of color, gloss retention and durability is superior to conventional lacquer finishes.
A coating of wax, rubbed to a high polish, is recommended for all bright metal parts.
Washing Your Chevrolet
The best way to preserve the finish and maintain
original beauty of appearance is to keep it clean. Wash
the car in lukewarm or cold water. Never use strong soap
or chemical detergents. Cleaning agents should be quickly
Hushed from the surfaces.
Polishing and Waxing Your Chevrolet
Although acrylic paint on your car is durable, you
may wish to wax or polish for added protection. Your
Chevrolet Dealer offers many polishes and waxes now
available which have proven of real value in maintaining
a good paint finish. When using a tar and road oil remover, be certain it is safe for use on acrylic painted surfaces.

Cleaning the Optional Impala Vinyl Top
The top should be washed frequently with neutral
soap suds, lukewarm water and a brush with soft bristles.
Rinse top with sufficient quantities of clear water to
remove an traces of soap .
If the top requires additional cleaning after using
soap and water, a mild foaming cleanser can be used.
Rinse the whole top with water; then apply a mild
foaming type cleanser on an area of approximately two
square feet. Scrub area with a small soft bristle hand
brush, adding water as necessary until the cleanser foams
to a soapy consistency. Remove the first accumulated
soilage with a cloth or sponge before it can be ground
into the top material. Apply additional cleanser to the
area and scrub until the top is clean. Care must be
exercised to keep the cleanser from running onto body
finish as it may cause streaks if allowed to run down and
dry. After the entire top has been cleaned, rins,e generously
with clear water to remove all traces of cleanser. Do not
use volatile cleaners or household bleaching agents on the

MAINTENANCE AND LUBRICATION
line, and if knocking continues, consult your Authorized
Chevrolet Dealer.
If you plan to operate your Chevrolet outside the
continental limits of the United States or Canada. there is
a possibility that the best fuels available are so low in
octane quality that excessive knocking and serious engine
trouble may result from their use. To minimize this possibility, write to Chevrolet Motor Division, General Motors
Corporation, Service Operations Department, Detroit,
Michigan 48202 giving: Your engine serial number (see
page 45), the compression ratio of your engine (see page
46) and the country or countries in which you plan to
travel. You will be furnished details of adjustments or
modifications which should be made to your engine by
your Chevrolet dealer prior to your deparhlre. After arriving in a foreign country, contact the nearest authorized
General Motors dealer for brand names of the best fuels
available and advice as to where they may be purchased.
In all cases excessive knocking should be avoided as
much as possible in order to prevent possible engine
damage. Operation of your car under conditions of continuous or excessive knocking constitutes misuse of the
engine for which the Chevrolet Division is not responsible
under the terms of the manufacturer's
ew Vehicle
Warranty.
GASOLINE AND ENGINE OIL
In the selection of gasoline and engine oil to be used,
it is best to consider the reputation of the refiner or
marketer. This is the best means of obtaining gasoline
and oil of high quality.
Gasoline
All Chevrolet 6 cylinder engines and V-8 engines with
two-barrel carburetors are uesigned to operate efficiently
on regular grade gasolines commonly sold in the United
States and Canada.
All Chevrolet higher performance V-8 engines are
designed to operate efficiently on premium grade gasolines commonly sold in the United States and Canada.
Use of regular grade gasolines in these higher perfonnance
V-8 engines may result in excessive knocking.
Since the octane quality of all regular grade or of all
premium grade gasolines is not the same and factors
such as altitude, terrain and air temperature affect operating efficiency, excessive knocking may result, even though
yOll are using the grade of gasoline recommended for
your engine. If excessive knocking occurs in your engine,
it may be necessary to use the next higher grade of gase-

OIL LEVEL
Regardless of the change interval being followed
check the oil level (with the engine hot) on the dipstick
regularly. Keep oil level between the FULL and ADD
marks, by adding oil when level is at or below the ADD
mark. It is not necessary to keep the level at the FULL
mark. DO NOT OVERFILL.
32
COOLING SYSTEM CARE
Air conditioned vehicles are equipped with a 15 lb. pressure type cap to provide added protection. The radiator
cap must be installed tightly.
, Your Chevrolet engine cooling system is equipped
with a 180 0 thermostat and is designed to operate on
permanent type (ethylene glycol) anti-freeze. Non-Permanent type coolants are not recommended since they
are not satisfactory for year around use and may not
effectively inhibit corrosion of the engine cooling system
when used with the quality of water found in some areas.
•
To remove the cap: tum a quarter of a tum to allow
the pressure in the cooling system to escape safely,
then turn the cap all the way off.
CAUTION: After a long hard drive or after driving during extremely hot weather, never attempt to remove
the radiator cap until the engine has been stopped
and allowed to cool for several minutes. Then carefully remove the cap as described above.
If the anti-freeze was installed at the factory or if it
meets the requirements of General Motors Standard GM
1899-M which contains adequate corrosion protection, it
may be left in the cooling system for 24 months or 24,000
miles, whichever occurs first.
To Completely drain .the cooling system:
Check the coolant level regularly. Level should be 1"
below top of filler neck when cold. Add water or permanent anti-freeze as required to maintain proper level.
Concentration of coolant should be to 0° F. or below to
insure sufficient corrosion protection.
•
All models-open drain cock on bottom of radiator.
•
6-Cyl. engine-remove drain plug on left rear side of
block.
•
Each fall have your Chevrolet dealer inspect the cooling system to insure that all connections are leakproof
and anti-freeze content will provide adequate protection
in cold weather.
8-Cyl. engine-remove drain plugs on each side of
block above oil pan.
BATTERY CARE
Check the fluid level in each cell of your battery
regularly. Keep filled with distilled water to the bottom
of the sput ring in the vent tube. DO NOT OVERFILL.
The standard radiator cap is a 13 lb . pressure type.

_ _ TRAILERS and their EFFECT on CAR OPERATION
by misuse of the vehicle with trailer loads, such part or
component will not be covered by the manufacture{s
wan-anty.
Chevrolet passenger cars are designed pdmarily for
passenger conveyance. However, it is well known that
many owners do use their Chevrolet to pull trailers, and
when available trailer hauling options have been used, the
owners have experienced very satisfactory service.
The size of and equipment for trailers, including such
items as hitches and safety chains, brakes, lights, power.
weight ratios and over-all length, are generally subject
to safety regulations in all states, and it is the responsibility of the user to make certain that he is in fun compliance with the regulations of the states in which he
plans to operate with a trailer and of the Interstate Commerce Commission, if applicable, before doing so. FUlther,
when operating a car with a b-ailer attached, the driver
must realize that the performance, steering characteristics,
and braking distance of his car have been altered, and
that he must exercise greater caution to safely handle his
car and trailer.
When a trai ler is attached to a car, the car becomes
not only a load.carrying vehicle, but a loadwpulling vehicle. The demands of th is type of operation an:! very difFerent from those for which the automobile is primarily
designed and may p resent problems, such as spring and
tire loading, braking, cooling, Jighting, and steering. However, careful driving practices and the use of factoryrecommended options win better satisfy the requirements
of trailer hauling.

whether the fuel is reaching the carburetor. Disconnect the fuel line
at the carburetor and remove the center wire from the coil tower.
Place a jar or cup under the open line and briefly "cro nk" the engine
by means of the starter. If fuel spurts from the fitting, you moy assume
that the FUel LINES are clear and the FUEL PUMP is operating
properly. If no fuel leaves the lin e, either the fuel lines or fuel
pump are at fault. See you r Authorized Chevrolet Dealer.
(C) Before reconnecting the fuel
line to the carburetor, remove the
FUel FILTER from the carburetor
inlet and check its cond ition . If it
appears to be clean, replace it
and reconnect the fuel line. If
the £lIter appears to be plugged,
clean it as well as possible by
scraping out the foreign material
and cleaning in a so/vent. Then
Fuel Filler
reinstall the filter. Replace the
filter wi th a new one as soon as possible.
The chart on the previous page, and the information on the pages
which follow, conta ins information designed to aid the average
driver to discover, and possibly correct, conditions resulting in minor
mechanical difficulties in his car. The chart, designed to point out
p ossible solut ions to severa l of the most common automotive malfunctions and point out a logical checking sequence, will lead step
by step to the most like ly causes and corrective procedures. If, after
making the checks and adjustments suggested, the source of the
trouble has not been found and corrected, it is strongly recommended
that an Authorized Chevrolet Dealer inspect the vehicle and make
whatever repairs or adjustments are necessary.
FUEL SYSTEM AND ENGINE
If the ignition switch will ca use the engine to "turn over" or
"crank" but the cor wi ll not start, check Steps A through D below.
NOTE: If Continual "flooding" of the carburetor is evidenced by a
carburetor wet with fuel or black exhaust smoke, perform the
operation suggested in paragraph D only.
(A) The first and most obvious,
and one of the most frequently
overlooked, items to check when
you have difficulty in starting your
cor is the amount of fuel in the
tank . Make it a habit to check the
FUEL GAUGE regularly and most
especially at a time when the engine will " turn over" but will not
start.
fBI If the fuel tonk is not empty,
you may check further to see
Checkin9' Fuel Flow
(0) If the fue l seems to be reaching the carburetor properly, the
problem may be: an EMPTY CARBURETOR BOWL caused by a
" stuck shut " carburetor; a flOODED CARBURETOR caused by a
"stuck open" condition and evidenced by gasoline flowing down
the outside of the carburetor; or a stuck CHOKE va lve. Remove the
air cleaner from the carburetor. Check that the choke valve moves
free ly and is not stuck. (Don't mistake normal spring tension for a
stuck valve.) Top the side of the carburetor sharply several times
with a light too/ such as a screwdriver handle or pliers. Replace the
air cleaner and attempt to start the engine in the normal manner.
42
(El If the car will start but sta ll s when hot or has a rough idle,
you can suspect a faulty IDLE ADJUSTMENT, a malfunctioning
AUTOMATIC CHOKE or on extremely dirty and blocked AIR
CLEANER ELEMENT. Clean [oil wetted or oil bath air cleaner) or
replace (pape r element ai r cleaner) your air cleaner element if
necessary. Idle adjustment or automatic choke service (other than
that outlined in paragraph D above) should be perfo rmed by you r
Chevro let Dealer.
If the above fuel System checks and the checks suggested under
the Electrical System following do not correct the malfunction, it is
recommended that you turn to your Authorized Chevrolet Dea ler
for further checks, adjustments or repairs.
POOR BATTERY CONNECTIONS may be suspected if the cor has
operated properly a short time before and now not even the horn
will operate. Check both ends of both battery cables. If the connections are corroded, a car may sometimes be restored to opera·
tion by removing all cable ends, scraping all contacting surfaces
clean with a pen knife, and reassembling. If the cables are broken,
they must be replaced. The power supply should now be restored
unless the battery is dead.
If, however, the lights and horn work p roperly but the starter
will sti ll not turn over, check the STARTER connections. A "dick"
from the starter solenoid ind icates that the wiring to the starter is
properly installed. If the wiring seems to be clean and tightly installed, the trouble is probably in the starter itself and should be
referred to you r Authorized Chevrolet Dealer.
When the engine will "turn ove r" but will not start, the following
items may be checked along with the Fuel System Checks listed
previously.
(H)
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
If, when the ignition key is turned to "Start", the engine wilJ not
turn over, you have good reason to suspect electrical trouble.
NOTE: Never remove Delcotron bat lead without first disconnect·
ing battery ground coble.
(F) When there is no response at all to attempts to start the car,
check the obvious-you , AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION SElECTOR
LEVER must be in Neutral or Park position before the engine can be
storted. Turning the IGNITION SWITCH rapidly bock and forth
several times will sometimes correct a poor internal switch contact.
(G) The BATTERY may be discharged. If so, lights will be dim and
the horn will have a poor tone if it will blow at all.
Usually a garage recharge will be necessary to return the battery
to operation. Occasionally, however, a push start and long drive
will recharge the battery.
NOTE: If the battery is determined to be dead, and for no apparent
reason, have your Authorized Chevrolet Dealer check the
botf.,y, the GENERATOR and the VOLTAGE REGULATOR .
GENERATOR trouble should already have been indicoted by
the generator indicator fight on the instrument panel.
(I) With a clean dry cloth wipe the ceramic portions of the spa rk
p lu gs dry. In particularly damp or rainy weather dampness may be
the cause of not starting, especially when the engine is cold.
(J) Check the cables at the top
of the distributor and coil as well
as each spark plug coble for
tigh tness.
If the car wil l still not start,
check for spark at the spark plugs
in the following manner:
(K)
Pul l one of the spark plug
wires off its spark plug. Insert a
short piece of bore wire (such as
43
Distriburor and Coil Cables
fV-8 shown)
a bobby pin) between the r,ubber
cup at the end of the spark plug
wire and the tubular metal connector inside of it. If the spark
plug wire is wet or oily, wipe it
dry. Wrap a dry handkerchief or
facial tissue, folded several thicknesses, around the wire at least
three inches back from the end
and grasp the wire at this point,
Hold the bare wire about % inch
from the bare tip of the spark
Checking Spark
plug from which you removed the
wire. When the engine is "turned o .... er .. a spark should jump across
the % inch space, indicating ample current supp ly. If no spark
jumps, the difficulty is probably caused by a defecti ....e ignition part
and should be corrected by your Authorized Chevrolet Dealer.
(N)
Check the RADIATOR CORE. Cleon it if it is plugged with
bugs, leaves or other foreign material.
(0) Condition of the FAN BElT
is very important, not only for engine cooling but also for proper
generator operation. Check the
condition of the bel t, Replace it
if it is worn or frayed. Loosen the
generator bolts and move the
generator toward the engine to
remove and replace the belt.
Tighten the belt, whether new or
old, by loosening the generator
Fan Belt Tension
bolts, prying with a ba r on the
generator until the belt is tensioned properly, then retighten the
genera tor bolts. Proper belt tension is such that, when pressed hard
at a point midway between the
generator and fan pulleys, the
belt will deflect about % inch.
COOLING SYSTEM
(P) Another cause of engine
o .... erheating may be an inopera-
When the car will run but evidences serious overheating on the
temperature gauge in the instrument panel, there are se .... era l items
which may be checked,
tive COOLING SYSTEM THERMOSTAT. If the thermostat should foi l
in the closed position, it will not
permit water to circulate through
the system, In such an emergency
the thermostat may be remo .... ed
but should be replaced with a
properly functioning thermosta t
as soon as possible.
(L) Engine over,h eating will occur when the OIL LEVEl falls dangerously low, Check the oil le .... el as a matter of course.
(M) low WATER lEVEL will, of course, cause engine overheating.
Determine the cause of the low water level and have it corrected
if necessary.

CHEVROLET OWNER PROTECTION PLAN
The Chevrolet Motor Division considers it a most important obligation to offer
each owner a recommended maintenance service guide 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
Plan Booklet. The recommended Maintenance and Lubrication Service items in
this Plan Booklet have been worked out by Chevrolet service personnel and
cover items which are the owners responsibility to have checked, inspected,
adjusted and lubricated at recommended time or mileage intervals.
If the services are carried out at the prescribed time or mileage intervals,
wear and owner expense will be kept to a minimum. Additional services may
become necessary as mileage accrues, however, the regular visit that you make
to your Chevrolet dealer in following this Plan will point out desirable services
as they become necessary.
In the event warranty repa ir is required on your Chevrolet, the Chevrolet
Protect-a-Plate affixed to the back cover of your Protection Plan Booklet will
assist in identifying you a nd your Chevrolet to your Chevrolet dealer.
