This Chevrolet has been driven 260,000 miles, or more than 10 times around the world, by A.R. M. STone, stationery broker of 6135 Wagner Avenue, St. Louis, Mo. He bought the car in 1913, the first year of Chevrolet production and since has driven 60 to 70 miles a day. Averaging 25 miles per gallon, the car has burned about 10,4000 gallons of gas or approximately the capacity of two railroad tank cars. Mr. Stone believes his car is the oldest Chevrole in active service.
