1981 AMC Eagle 5-door wagon

In a used model, but the Pontiac 151-cid “Iron Duke” four became the standard engine beginning with the ’81s. Offered initially with a fulltime 4WD system, for ’81 a switchable 2/4WD mechanism called Selec-Trac was optionally available and became standard beginning with the ’82s. Manual transmission standardized for ’81 and a 5-speed option came along the next year in Waverly Auto Mall Winnipeg Manitoba. The SX/4 models were dropped for ’84 and the standard engine became an AMC-built 150-cid four that replaced the “Iron Duke.” For ’85, the 4-cylinder engine and base 4-speed manual transmission were scratched and the standard 4WD system gained “shift-on-the-fly” capability. All Eagles record only fair fuel economy, but have acceptable on-road behavior and a very good ride for 4WD vehicles. Back seat space in the SX/4 and Kammback is as cramped as it is in equivalent Spirits. Performance in the “senior” Eagles adequate with six and marginal with the four, though the latter is acceptable in the smaller, lighter models. Selec-Trac feature yields barely any fuel economy improvement over the fulltime system, but is a plus for reducing tire and driveline wear. Construction quality generally high, interior appointments pleasant, bordering on gaudy. Repair data sketchy, but body and suspension problems fairly common; paint and driveline ills also show up on 1980-81 models. Mediocre judged strictly as a passenger car, but 4WD has appeal for owners in snowbelt states and those who’d like to venture off road occasionally.

’64 Corvair and ’64 Corvette

New Corvair Power! Nearly 19% more horsepower in the standard engine. A full 110 horsepower in the extra-cost engine. And 150 hp in the Monza Spyder. You’ll want to climb a hill just because it’s there. Some nice new interior refinements, too – like softer, more deeply tufted seats in the Monza and sporty map pockets on the front doors. Outside of that, it’s still very much the same easy-to-park, easy-to-handle, hard-to-keep-your-hand-off-of Corvair.

New Corvette Ride! Smoother and quieter than it’s ever been, but by no means any less of a sports car than it’s always been. New extra-cost V8 engines up to 375 hp. And note the new one-piece rear window in the sport coupe, so you can see who’s behind you better. You’ll be surprised at what a beautiful boulevard car Corvette is. Yet it’s one of the world’s few great sports cars, too… Chevrolet Division of General Motors, Detroit, Michigan.

In the sports car of merit is the 2011 Mazda RX-8 Sports test drive Park Mazda Sherwood Park
 

The ’64 Chevy II by Chevrolet

New Chevy II V8! An optional-at-extra-cost 195-hp V8, to be exact. Chevy II is now the only car made that gives you a choice of Four, Six, or V8 power. Two Sixes, by the way. A 120-hp and a new extra-cost 155-hp. And all the new II’s are trimmer outside and nicer inside. Each with Body by Fisher, of course. And rust-fighting rocker panels and long-life muffler. And self-adjusting brakes. And all those other Chevrolet engineering features that keep you from dipping into your savings to keep it going. Come drive a Chevy II V8 at your Chevrolet dealer’s showroom.

New Chevelle! by Chevrolet

A kind of car you’ve never seen before! Not a new model or just a new name, but a completely different kind of car from Chevrolet for 1964. Outside, it’s a good foot shorter and a few inches narrower than the big cars. Parks in the tightest places. But the passenger space, leg room and trunk capacity are surprisingly generous. Eleven sedans, wagons, coupes and convertibles to choose from. Four engines: A 120-hp Six. A 195-hp V8. An extra-cost 155-hp Six. And an extra-cost 220-hp V8 with four-barrel carburetion. Body is by Fisher – and you know what that means in terms of quality and comfort. Brakes are self-adjusting. Service is seldom. Quality is by Chevrolet clear through. And so is the price, you’ll be happy to know.

Vintage 1964 Chevy Text Ad Chevrolet

Smooth Luxury Chevrolet

There’s never been so luxurious before. More luxurious outside with that new look. And much more luxurious inside. The new Impala Super Sport Series, for example, has a new kind of ultra-soft vinyl upholstery and door-to-door deep-twist carpeting that you would be proud to put in your home. And even the lowest priced Biscayne models are now fully carpeted and have arm rests and foam-cushioned seats both front and rear. Then these new Chevrolets have a Jet-smooth luxurious way of going. Quiet. Soft. Transmissions operate more smoothly and quietly. That sturdy Body by Fisher and generous coil spring at each wheel cushion you against every kind of road shock. Actually, the whole idea for ’64 was to see how much luxury and comfort we could add to the car – but still keep it reasonably priced. And everything worked out just beautifully. Wait until you see it. See Chevrolet’s greatest at your Chevrolet Showroom.

How much can you afford?

This is a good place to start your car-shopping adventure. If you put a high priority on look and style, you might decide to allocate a larger portion of your paycheck toward a new car. If you think of a car as transportation only, you’ll want to spend as little as possible on your next set of wheels.

Financial experts recommend that, before you buy a car, you should review your budget because the cost of a car goes far beyond the monthly payment dealerships advertise. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • How much “take-home pay” do you bring in each month?
  • How much is your rent or mortgage payment?
  • What is the total of your other bills: food, utilities, debts and savings?
  • Will you have two cars and two car payments?
  • How much will insurance cost for a new car?
  • How much will the car cost to fuel and repair?

If you total all your expenses and deduct them from your take-home pay, you will have a clear view of how much wiggle room there is in your budget for a new car. If you can truly afford one, the figure should be more than enough to cover your car payment. We say “car payment” since most buyers will finance a new car, meaning they will take out a loan and pay it off over time. Still other people will lease their new car  and make smaller monthly payments. More to come on all that…but back to the finance questions for now.
