Nowhere will yon find a mechanism more skilfully fitted part to part with scrupulous precision — engineered to stricter standards of fiiie-car quality— than the deep-framed and durahle ROADMASTKR chassis. It means, also, that you possess keen •ppreciation of everything that makes for unsurpassed performance. For there's more to this dazzling beauty than its thrilling take-off. There's the surplus of power thai ydu need to make yon the master of hnsy traffic or open road— plus the velvet magic of Dynaflow Drive (at no extra «oit, mind you). There's the level-going luxury of ample roadwciglil buoyantly balanced on coil springy on every wheel—and the security of brakes specifically engineered for firm control of this greal-powered beauty. But there's still another distinction to being a ROAMMASTKR owner. It marks you as one who buys wisely and well. Size for size, pound for pound, feature for feature, few cars can even approach what your dollars will buy in this finest of Buicks. There's much more lo be discovered by a visit lo any Buick dealer's showroom. There's ihe sumptuous softness of cushions, the custom excellence of fabrics and interior trim, ihe grace and charm of £very line and contour. So if you've dr.c»mcd of sometime owning a cur superbly fine, there's no time like the present—and no car like ROADAIASTEU for making dreams come true. When feeder n»«»m n |.tl«. arn hull!
