THE NEW OLDSMOBILE/iTHE LOWEST PRICED CAR WITH 0* SYNCRO-MESH TRANSMISSION Among the many important new features now provided in Oldsmobilc is the famous Syncro-MesK transmission . . . and this is the first time this feature has ever-been made available at a price so low. The advantages offered by the Syncro-Mesh transmission make it one of the most desirable of present day fine-car features. It permits silent shifting through all gears . . . from low into second, from second to high, and from JtigJi bicJ{ to second, as desired. Gear-clashing is eliminated. And driving in traffic is easier, for the downward shift--from high into second--can be made without reducing car epeed. Thisshift. i. so difficult with the ordinary transmission, and so useful for a quick burst of speed in traffic . . . is also a factor of safety and convenience when driving in m o u n t a i n o u s country, where, second gear is frequently employed for its braking effect on the car. Further, the second gear in Oldsmobile'a Syncro-Mesh transmission is a new quiet type--assuring smooth, swift acceleration which rivals high gear performance in quietness. Until you have actually driven the new Oldsmobile and experienced for yourself the driving ease and flashing acceleration made possible by the Syncro-Mesh transmission, you cannot appreciate how much this modern fine car feature really adds to driving enjoyment.
