S URE, a trim new Buick makes a mighty pretty picture when you see it in your driveway, or watch it wheel by. But if you could get a mcchanic's-cye view of this big, broad beauty as it sits on a lift, you'd see an impressive picture of rugged brawn that makes good-to-look-at Buicks give such a good account of themselves on the road. lou'd see the full-length torque-tube drive that firms the whole power relay system, and steadies your going like a giant hand beneath you. "\bu'd see big sturdy wheels with really wide rims that provide surer footing, give better car control, make tires last longer. "Vbu'd see all four wheels cushioned by stout coil springs that are completely service-free, practically brcakproof—and a principal reason for the ever-level Buick ride. But mainly, you'd see the massive foundation that backbones every Buick — the deep, wide, X-member frame that's rugged as a rock, and a brute for strength. So when you look at the beauty of a Buick—the big mileage power of its valve-in-head Fireball Engine — and the moneysaving ability of its Dynaflow Drive*- don't overlook the tough stamina that goes with it all. And don't overlook the fact that a new '51 Buick, with all its heft, costs less per pound than any other car of comparable size, structure and weight. Better come see us first chance you get—and find out what a smart buy this is—from every angle.
