THE LCNE RANGER By Fran Striker
No wonder this great*
55 Pontiac is setting
all-time sales records !
It's bigger, smarter and mora powerful than
any othar ear at anything Ilka tha price /
A sales success like Pontiac's starts on the draw
ing boards? with engineers and designers who
have been schooled for yean in the Pontiac idea
of giving more people more car for leas money.
With its long 122' or 124* wheel base and extra,
big-car heft, Pontiac provides road-hugging com
fort / you get in no other car near it in price!
Now take this big, roomy car and surround
it with the distinction of Twin-Streak styling
and Vogue Two-Toning? beauty that obviously
is calling the turn on the future-^and you have
another reason for Pontiac's phenomenal sales
That alone would be enough for most can
but not for Pontiac! a
Pontiac corners the market on value with the
most powerful engine within hundreds of dollan
of its price. The aeneational 200-horsepower
Strato-Streak V-8 with four-barrel carburetor*
is the most modem power you can buy. You're
on even terms with anything on the road? and
you enjoy the greatest economy and dependa
bility in Pontiac history. i
If by now you're thinking "This is what I've
wanted all along!", we suggest you stop in and
talk dollars and cents. That's when you'll get
the final reason for Pontiac's record popularity
?the fact that you can fit a big, powerful,
future-fashioned Pontiac into any new-car budget!
You'll never find it easier to get into the fine
car diss than right now.' 'Lour extra east option
