F IRST time we saw the blueprints for this Buick thirty- niner we knew we had something pretty special for folks who. like action in their travels. It had eight eager cyh'n'ders in a mighty Dynaflash engine--and they could make a scared jack rabbit eat dust whenever the word was given! It had a ride we promptly dubbed "full float"--its stout coiled springs are now 15% softer in the rear, and hooked up, in front, with Knee- Action that banks curves for you.

So we looked it all over--and went a step further. We decided a car so plainly meant for action needed to have a price that would set action for it! Now it isn't easy to build such a traveler--rich in reliable Buick quality clear down to the metals it's made of -- and still give it a price that rubs elbows with the YOU G£T 1 BtTTfR USED CAR BUICK DEALER sixes. But just look around, match up the price tags, and you'll find that this great straight- cight lists for less than some cars with two fewer cylinders! It comes complete with equipment that's extra in many another instance -- yet the figures still read lower than on Buick of a year ago. So when you see this Buicfc you not only see the car, but the one big. value of the year. That's why we're anxious to have you try Buick--it's a car with a winning way about ft, and a winning price tag in the bargain! \etter bm H^. BIRUM-OLSON CO. 316 NORTH FEDERAL AVE. MASON CITY, IOWA
