MNnmCMG PAVMtHTS TO MMBUR BUVEK AS MMBUITS SSIES VOLUME MCREMIS Why You Should Join Rambler's New Grusade For Adequate Progress Sharing With Customers "I believe participation by all consumers in economic progress is absolutely necessary in meeting the nation's economic needs." . *... . . i .. ., _. . • »-• - .U.I GEORGE ROMNEY President, American Motors Corporation Rambler's rise to a top position has put us in position to undertake a new crusade. This program, which could provide greater individual and national benefits than any we've yet undertaken, calls for customer progress sharing. As volume goes up, costs come down. So, sharing economies that would result from a 50% Rambler sales gain over last year for the period December through March could provide payments to customers of $18,698,062. But, before presenting our new Rambler crusade, let me review some highlights of the first one. When we forged our basic Rambler concepts, U.S. cars were in a size, horsepower and styling-change race that cost the car buyer money. So, we developed the compact, economical, modernly engineered Rambler. . CONSUMER BENEFITS FROM LOWER PRICES Because of low volume, we had to price our lirst Rambler Americans about equal with Chevrolet and Ford, traditionally "lowest priced." As our output and economics in* creased, we shared the resulting economic advantages with Rambler customers. Despite inflation, we kept prices low. We also concentrated on durability and quality. That is why Rambler excels in trouble-free operation, as shown by trade surveys made by others. What has this done? It has increased our sales—made us a vigorous new competitive factor, compelling all competitors to introducecompact cars. Their compact cars unquestionably are better buys than their big cars, because their big cars don't have the compacts' advanced engineering. Despite these moves to meet Rambler competition, Rambler American models are now priced not only below competitive big cars but below their economy compacts as well. In addition, Ramblers provide customers several exclusive trouble-free engineering advances such as the acid- proof, rustproof Ceramic-Armored muffler and tailpipe. The Rambler line includes three basic sizes of compact cars—Rambler American, Rambler Classic and Ambassador, the latter two developed after the original American series. RAMBLER SALES SOAR In two years, Rambler's per cent of market has more than doubled. For the last 38 straight months, Rambler sales have established a new record for that month. We want to continue this growth by serving you even better. THE NEW RAMBLER CRUSADE Our new Rambler crusade, like our compact crusade, is based on sharing Rambler progress with ca'r buyers. We believe the new Rambler crusade has timely significance. Our country currently is experiencing a mild economic slowdown—with rising foreign competition and weakness of the dollar. Our larger competitors are considering partial manufacture and importation of cars for the U.S. market from abroad. There is a general profit squeeze. We believe the greatest single economic cause is that relatively too much of the fruit of industrial effort has been going to a few well organized economic groups, not to the consumer. CUSTOMERS TO SHARE RAMBLER PROGRESS We decided there was something we could do. We decided to share future progress with ALL customers who take HOW PAYMENTS TO BUYERS WILL BE DETERMINED IN AMERICAN MOTORS'CUSTOMER PROGRESS SHARING PROGRAM BUYERS RECEIVE U.S. SAVINGS BONOS (Matmity Value) $125 $100 $ 75 $ 50 $ 25 BOND PAYMENT SALES LEVELS DECEMBER (Dec. tain) 45,247 42,231 39,214 36,198 33,181 JANUARY FEBRUARY MARCH (Dec.-Jan. total) (Dec.-Jin..r«t>. tola!)

Early buyers can gel more, but never less bonds, than buyers in succeeding months. Your Rambler dealer will be happy to give you the complete details of the plan but here is a quick example of how it works and keeps on working lor you: II'December Rambler deliveries increase 20% over last December, December buyers of new Ramblers or Metropolitans will receive S50 bonds. As the four-month period progresses, additional bonds will be mailed to the December buyers each time the cumulative sales reach a higher bond payment sales level. Also, if sales increase for the four-month period exceeds 5071, proportionate additional payments will be made to all buyers during any of the four-months. delivery of a new Rambler or new Metropolitan between December 1, 1960, and March 31, 1961, from an authorized Rambler dealer (excluding governmental sales), giving them most of the benefit of additional cost reduction resulting from further increases in Rambler sales volume. This can mean a sharing with Rambler buyers during the 4-month period of government savings bonds (Series E) with a maturity value from $3,679,850 (10% sales increase), to $24,930,750 (50% increase). See chart for details. mWiii" --'•--""•• ••-"^-•'•'••--'•••-•••- BOTH CUSTOMERS AND AMERICAN MOTORS GAIN You have everything to gain and nothing to lose by joining this crusade. The same is true for us. You can't lose because Ramblers arc better than big cars and the best of the compacts. Ramblers are more trouble- free, more useful, lower priced. You make your regular deal in the regular way for a new Rambler. You then may share proportionately in the economics and profits of higher Rambler volume in December, 1960, and the first three months of 1961. We gain by acquiring more Rambler owners, which will make our growing market even larger in the future, That's because Rambler owners become Rambler salesmen and are the most loyal "repeat buyers" of any make. Ask your neighbor all about his Rambler, then join the Rambler crusade. Join us in focusing the nation's attention on the essentiality of equitably sharing economic progress with ALL consumers if the WHOLE NATION is to prosper. Monkeys arc caught by tilling a coconut shell with chopped coconut meat. The monkeys grasp a fistful and, unwilling to lei any go, cannot withdraw their paws. So, they are easy victims. The U.S. consumer is not yet as scrawny as shown, hut unless there is a more equitable division of the productivity increases, he will get that way. One of the three American groups must let go and set an example—or all will be captured and, along with the consumer, all will sufl'er. P.S> Some may say one company can't do much about national problems as big and complex as those cited above. Well, that's what skeptics said about Rambler's first crusade. Let's remember, every great thing is born small. If this new Rambler crusade is right, it can succeed and spread, just as the compact car concept did.
