Chevrolet's 1950s Motivational Musical About Selling Cars

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

Celebrate the 100th birthday of Chevrolet with this peppy song and dance number, which used to be performed at conventions for Chevrolet sales employees. The performers embody prospective customers, who explain just how much better their lives will be when they buy a Chevrolet. This is just the opening number; the lively musical can be watched in its entirety at the Prelinger Archive.
