HE 7-7483 We'd like to clear up some misconceptions we may have been guilty offosterin A number of people have aslf d us how » e £rt away with advertisin: Volvo as Amerka's bit«st selling tmporteJ compact car when evcrjbody tnowt that N'olVswa^cn is Amerka's birgcit selling importeJ compact car. ' The answer is siroplt. Volkswagen is not a compact. It's an economy car. V\V is built small to carry you from here to there at the least possible cost. Volvo is built family-size to carry you f rora here lo there at the least possible cost. V\V does its job so well it tives you over 25 miles to a gallon. Volvo Joes its job so well it also gives you over 25 miles to a gallon. VW is built so well that used ones sell for nearly as much as new- ones. Volvo is built so well you have trouble finding a used one. So much for misconception number one. Misconception number two is price. Far too many people (for our comfort) think a Volvo costs quite a bit more than a Corvair, Fakon or Valiant compact. Valiant, the lowest priced of the three, lists at S1910, for eiampIe.The lowest priced Volvo lists at S2395 *. But unless you add a four-speed synchromesh transmission. bucket scats, safety belts, padded dash and padded sun visors, dual carburetors, vthitcwalK undcrcoatin; and a few other things lo a Valiant it won't ha\e \\hat a Volvo's ;ot. And \\hcn you do add those thincs \ou won't get a Valiantfor _ . . any 51910. It'll be right aton; with Volvo in price.The only thins is. it won't be rijht alon; \\iih Volvo in performance. But then., ', neither is the Falcon or Con air. A Vohi will out-accelerate all . ; three of these cars in c\ cry speed range. * r - . \\T-.ich brings us to misconception number three: A hi:h-pcr-' v ' formance engine needs a lot of care. Well let Srvrts Car Graphic. ·'' authoritative automotive majazirie answer that one, "Project Volvo cams off the dynamometer at the Autolite Test Facility after one of the most severe lests we have ever put a Project engine through. Perhaps the foremost bit of education vv e acquired was . ; learning that the Volvo B-18 engine is one of the most, if not THE most, reliable, rugged and unbreakable car engines being built today." And row a word about the Volvo 1800S. We don't think there .' arc any misconceptions about the 1SOO S because it's pretty much in a cbss by itself. As Road i Track, another authoritative auto-^ ! motive magazine puts it."The ISOQSisavcryciuIizcdtouringcar. _ for people who u ant to Irav e! rapidly in stvle, a Gran Turismo car . of the type much in the novs these Jaj s-but al a price that many. VALIANT VOLVO 122 S people who cannot afford a Ferrari or A«on Martin win be able to pay " You pay over $10,000 for a Ferrari or an Aston Martin. You pay $4225* for a Volvo ISOOS. Can you see $5,775 worth of difference? (Neither w ill anj one else.) Your Volvo dealer will be happy to have you take one of his cars out for a drive on your ow n. And we promise fight tcrc and now thai theneU Volvo advertisement is going to be shorter.
