    First films of a completely new line of Chevrolets, designed for the economy market, were related today....
    America's newest small car is called the bega 2300. It's available in four distinctively different models. The basic family two-door sedan features a four passenger, all-vinyl interior. Front bucket seats have built-in head restraints.

    Front end styling on the Vega features a silver-finish, grid-pattern grille, single unit headlights and wrap-around bumper.

    A large swing-up window on the coupe allows access to the rear compartment which converts easily from passenger to cargo space. Coupes and sedans have dual-unit taillights.

    For those who require even more carrying space, there is a four passenger wagon. The aerodynamic rear design features a one-piece swing-up tailgate with sealed rear window.

    For a variety of light duty commercial uses, this panel express truck has nearly 70 cubic feet of cargo space. It is the first Chevrolet truck built on an economy chassis with a fully enclosed body.

    The Vega is powered by an american built, four cylinder overhead cam 90 horsepower engine. A 110 horsepower version is optional. The block for the new engine is cast from a lightweight aluminum alloy. Front fenders are bolted on for simpler repair or replacement. The grille can be removed and replaced in just ten minutes. According to Chevrolet, experts who have driven the Vega say that it out-performs and out-handles competitive imports. Chevrolet also says that the Vega is designed for maximum safety, economy and simplicity of maintenance and that there will be no major styling changes for the next four years.
