MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 8 NINETEEN CHRYSLER HAS 4 NEW AND FINER MODELS SHOWN Score of New Features Are Incorporated in Latest Models of Car. Tile Chrysler line for 1936 comprises four entirely new and finer models. In these cars, Chrysler has introduced more than a score of new features that contribute to performance, safety, economy, comfort, luxury and beauty. The passenger space in the lower-priced cars in tne line has been increased. These late models will be displayed by J. H. Mar. ston as the auto show opens Thursday. Among the new features that make these cars the highest values ever offered by Chrysler are the following: Chrysler automatic overdrive on Chrysler Six and DeLuxe Eight, at slight extra cost, this feature, of course, being continued in the Airflow line, larger and stronger x- bridge-type frame on Chrysler Six and DeLuxe Eight, the new design of this frame resulting in double tne rigidity of former types, new and stronger body construction on Chrysler Six and DeLiuxe Eight; Hypo-id reai- axle on both Chrysler Six and DeLuxe Eight; full-length water jacket and new water .distributing tube on Chrysler Six engine; built-in trunks on all sedans; new ventilating system; starter button mounted on dash; interior size of bodies increased 4 inches in elbow room in Chrysler Six and DeLuxe Eight footrest made inttegral with front sent; completely adjustable full- width seats replace bucket seats in all two-door sedan models; added luxury in interiors; newly-designed radiator grille and louvres; overall height of cars reduced one inch in Chrysler Six and DeLuxe Eight models, and bumper to bumper length increased; spare tire carried in special compartment inside the body, Has Flowing Lines. From the re-styled, more gracefully curved new radiator grille, back to the new built-in rear trunk, standard on all sedan models, blending smoothly into the rear panel, the flowing lines of the new Chrysler Six and DeLuxe, Eight give the impression of reduced height and greater length. And the overall height is lower, and the bumper to bumper length slightly longer. Yet the interiors of the touring- sedan bodies have been increased four inches in elbow room, while the height from floor to ceiling and the head room remain unchanged. A new footrest is skillfully recessed into the back of the front seat. Many Improvements. Butterfly wings in the front windows, and the outward swinging rear quarter windows of all four- door Chrysler Six and DeLuxe Eight and Airflow Chrysler sedans afford ideal diffused ventilation, adjustable to the individual comfort of each passenger. In extremely hot weather large volumes of air can be deflected into the car by the swinging wings and by the large screened cowl ventilator. Back of the exterior beauty of the Has Dodge Agency N;itc Lapiner, owner of (he Lapiner Motor Company, Via Delaware avenue southeast, sells two makes of automobiles--the Dodge and Plymouth. two lower-priced models are many improvements in both body and chassis frame structure that contribute to strength, safety and silence of operation. Rigidity of the sturdy "X" braced frame has been doubled and the deflection under severe stresses is therefore cut in half, engineers state, by a series of changes that add only sixteen pounds to the weight. The junction at the center of the X-member, the keystone of the more rigid frame, has been re-designed for greater stiffness. The ends of the X-members have been extended further forward and further back, to add to the rigidity secured by riveting and welding them into the main side rails to form longer box sections beside the engine and over the rear axle. A full length water jacket and new water distributing tube are used on the Chrysler Six engine. The distributing tube leads the in- Coming cooling water to the part of the block where most heat must be absorbed, the metal near the exhaust valve seats. Equal water distribution, plus the full length water jackets accomplishes close equalization of temperature throughout the block. Airflow Advantages Featured. The new 1936 Airflow Chrysler and Airflow Chrysler Imperial models feature all the fundamental, outstanding advantages incorporated in the first Airflow Chrysler, introduced in January of 1934. These include higher aerodynamic efficiency, with its universally recognized advantages; greatly increased structural strength, provided by unbroken trusses of steel extending from the very front of the car to the extreme rear; and scientific weight distribution, combined with front springs as flexible as the rear. To these advantages have been added new refinements in styling that contribute greatly to a more pleasing frontal appearance, without detracting from the effectiveness of the Airflow design. The new die-cast, chromium finished grille is far more attractive and graceful in form, size and pattern. Its curves blend smoothly into the flowing lines of the hood.

Our photo- static copies of the official check sheet of the American Automobile Assn. give the exact mileage of each of the 30 cars entered in the biggest economy test of the year. You will wonder how the big 112-horsepower Graham Supercharger could win the sweepstakes championship in competition with so many smaller cars. It carried five passengers over mountain grades as high as 4045 feet and averaged 26.66 miles per gallon of gasoline! What is the secret of this record-smashing victory? What is there in the Supercharger that puts it so far ahead of other cars in economy and performance? To buy a car without getting the answer to those questions is to pass blindly by the biggest automotive advance of the last lOyears.
