EIGHTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 8 1936 3 NEW PONTIAGS ON PUBLIC VIEW AT Three New Lines for 1936 Are Straight Eight, Deluxe 6 and Six. Three' lines of new Pontiac mod els for 1936, the straight eight, sh and de luxe six, will be on publi view at the John Gallagher, Inc. salesrooms, 25 Second street south east, when the auto show opens Thursday. They sell at prices which pu them within the range of the lowest priced cars on the market. The "silver streak" radiator ant hood grille that formed the central design motif of 1935 and earned for Pontiac the descriptive character ization of the "most beautiful things on wheels,'' continues as the basic theme with certain pleasing changes that reflect even greater rcfinemen of taste and more artistic beauty .than was expressed in the original Many Improvements Made. Improvements included in the 1936 line are greater in number than they were for the 1935 models and fully as important to the motorist. Many of them are not as apparent at a glance and probably none of them stand out as boldly as Fisher turret top bodies, hydraulic tripled sealed brakes or the sealed chassis of 1935. A close examination discloses thai the Pontiac engineers have gone through the 1935 chassis and bodies feature by feature, refining this one and perfecting that one, keeping in mind the comfort and convenience of the motorist, and the economy performance and safety of the car A 10 minute ride in a new Pontiac model with a well informed salesman should be taken to realize the significance of many of the improvements. Score of Changes Made. Little improvement could be askec for in the grace and structural strength of the Fisher turret top solid steel body. But there are score or more of changes in the interior fitments, appointments and trim of all body models. For convenience, front doors' ol all models are hinged at the front and open from the rear. The instrument panel is entirely new and ultra modern. It is finished in burled poplar and chrome. Dial numerals are more easily read and dial lighting has been improved. Artistic paneling on the doors and expensive new cloth trim further distinguish the body interiors. Cabriolets are trimmed in hand buffed, crushed grain tan Spanish leather or taupe worsted Bedford cord. Optional upholstery on the three lines is as follows: Six, taupe mohair or brown pattern broadcloth; de luxe six, taupe mohair or modified tweed pattern taupe woolen cloth; eight, taupe mohair or brown, pin stripe broadcloth. Seat cushions have been reshaped to conform more nearly to the human figure. They are longer and deeper and extend to the floor in both front and rear. There is a new and clever combination arm rest and door handle. Engines and Chassis Improved. Many refinements in the power plans and chassis have been made to give improved performance, quicker acceleration, easier starting, higher speed, better economy and greater convenience in handling. Pontiac features that have proved highly satisfactory, such as metered flow lubrication, cross flow cooling, silver-cadmium bearings, electro-plated pistons, rifle drilled connecting rods, square bore and stroke, and ample engine mass for dependability and durability, naturally are retained. Triple sealed hydraulic brakes are more positive than ever and have a still greater safety factor now with new and more expensive cast iron brake drums and moulded linings. Automatic choke, automatic throttle opener, new' intake manifold and new combustion chamber are improvements in the six and. de -luxe engines. All models have a new clutch plate and new all-helical gear, synchro-mesh transmission. Funeral Services for Jok L. Skuttle Held Funeral services for John L. Skuttle, 63, who died at a local hospital Friday evening after an illness of one week, were held Wednesday afternoon at the McAuley funeral home, with the Elder Dewitt Osgood of the Seven Day Adventist church, Nevada, in charge of services.
