The 1939 model motorcar now mak- ng its appearance has just about everything the most exacting motorist could expect. One of the outstanding mechanical advances incorporated in many new cars is the removal of the gear shift lever from the center of the front floor board to the steering wheel column. This makes for comfort in driving and, added to the trend toward wider bodies, means much in increased roominess. On some models the elimination of running boards optional.
