From almost 60 years ago, this jaunty little video shows off Chevrolet’s line of trucks — 165 models in all — “all with independent front suspension” that delivers numerous advantages, according to the narrator. “Name your job, mister. Your Chevrolet dealer has the truck to handle it—profitably!” that same announcer adds. See what you could have been driving back when Alan Shepard became the first American in outer space, the New York Yankees’ Roger Maris hit his 61st home run for a new record and a Swanson’s frozen chicken TV dinner cost 49 cents.
