Exhaust emission tests were performed on a total of 873 typical consumer-owned 1968-1969 model light-duty vehicles in Kansas City and Houston to ascertain the effectiveness of Federal exhaust emission standards. The vehicles were representative of at least 90% of the vehicles sold in the U.S. by AMC, Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, and Volkswagen. Approximately the same number of vehicles were tested for each of 27 classes, each class representing a combination of manufacturer, engine size and transmission type. Vehicles were tested using the Federal 7-mode, 7-cycle cold-start procedure. The intention was to test each vehicle three times at about 4000 mile intervals. The actual results are reported.
