complicated car body in a new material ratcheted production costs up to where
Chevrolet introduced the car at $3,490. Complete with Powerglide transmission,

acquired a life of its own: it towered three and one-half feet above the pavement.
And as the back end rose, the front end strained forward: in 1953, Cadillac
bumpers were ...
