EQUIPPED =
Owners of the new Pontiac are people who know from experience
how to judge performance and quality. Theirs is no blind choice.
They select Pontiac because it enables them to enjoy fine-car advan
tages at moderate cost. You’ll appreciate these fine-car features:
NEW SO - HORSEPOWER
MOTOR—An engine far above old ideas
of quality performance possible at this price.
Smooth, flexible, dependable—and decidedly
economical despite its power.
FISHER RORY CRAFTSMAN
SHIP—That inimitable beauty of design
and styling which contributes so much to
motoring pleasure—particularly when pou
have guests. Upholstery is fine, durable
whipcord or mohair. Cushions are form
fitting. There is plenty of room for the
comfort of all in the car.
RUBBER-CXSHIONED CHASSIS
—A distinctly fine-car feature greatly adding
to riding ease. Road shocks are absorbed by
rubber insulation at more than 40 chassis
points. Rubber-cushioned shackles, an im
portant part of this insulation system, not
only promote comfort and stability on the
read, but eliminate lubrication at 12 points.
INSULATED CONSTRUCTION—
A notable advance in snugness of body
structure and insulation which shuts out
heat, cold, dampness and excessive noise.
Building the cowl and windshield pillars as
a single piece prevents leaks and rattles.
LARGE, POSITIVE BRAKES—
Brakes that evenly grip all wheels with a stop
ping power that gives every member of the
family new confidence in driving.
If the new Pontiac is anywhere near the
motor car price you have in mind, test its
actual value for yourself. A demonstration
will be arranged at your convenience.
This is the price of the 2-door
Sedan or Coupe delivered to
you in Shelby and equipped
ready for use. -
Equipment includes front and real
bumpers, shock absorbers. 5 wire
wheels, and extra tire, tube and tire
lock. Other models priced as follows.
Sport Coupe $824.00. 4-door Sedan or
Convertible Coupe $854.00 Cu'dou
Sedan $834.00.
