one of the distinctive features of this body style. The change in Duco finish to a pyramid gray lower body, with black upper structure and red striping on body, hood louvres and wheels adds to the attractiveness of this most distinctive car of the Oakland line. Cutting In Price Causes Sensation The sharp reductions in list prices announced by several leading motor car manufacturers about 60 days ago caused somewhat of a sensation among automobile buyers. A corresponding reduction in the cost of time payments on motor cars, just as farrcachiug in its effect, was announced about the same time by one of the largest financing cor- porations, yet passed almost without notice. “This latter reduction, made by the General Motors Acceptance corporation, while not so spectacular as the low list prices of several cars, is equivalent to a decided reduction on General Motors cars,” states C. W. Matheson, vice president and director of sales of the Oakland Motor Car company. “In the case of Oakland cars, for instance, it means a reduction of as much as 840 to 860, according to body type. Wise motor car buyers who purchase cars on time are scrutinizing more closely than eve* the differential between the list and delivered prices of cars. High financing charges can easily increase thi delivered price as much as 3 to -1 perccnt.” Benjamin Franklin wag one of 17 cu ildren. for Economica! Transportation
