Dear Buick Ownor:
Because of its importance, we decided to inform
you now that the present line of 1931 Buick Straight Eights will
not be replaced by new models this summer.
Buick, as you know, has introduced its new oars
on August 1st, year after year. But inasmuch as these new Straight
Eight models have met with such spontaneous approval by thousands
everywhere, Buick has decided to continue manufacturing the present
Eights throughout the summer and coming fall.
/. This is mighty good news to thousands of Buick
owners because they will buy new Buicks now with the knowledge
that there will be no model change next summer.
They will find in these new Buicks a degree of
performance that is certain to give them a genuine thrill. All
have the safe, silent-shift Syncro-Uesh transmission. All have
Valve-in-Head Straight Eight engines. And all have the famous
insulated Bodies by Fisher.
So well has the 1931 line been received that, out
of every 100 eights sold in Buick's price class, 56 are;Buicks.
May we suggest that you drive the Eight as Buick
• Builds It? Your Buick dealer will be glad to have you take the
wheel and learn at first hand how much Buick Straight Eight
performance adds to the Joy of motoring.
Very truly yours,
BUICK MOTOR COMPANY, FLINT, MICH.
WHEN BETTER AUTOMOBILES ARE BUILT
WILL BUI LD THEM
