Think o£ it--two out of every three of our Standard Eight sales arc made to people none of .whom ever before owned a Packard! Of course Packard has a long- estahliahed clientele. But repeat order business is to be expected. The surprising fact is that 90 many owners of lower-priced cars are turning to Packard transportation. The reason is that they h»Te found it costs no more. Give us the opportunity and no doubt we can show you that you, too, are paying Packard costs wbH® not enjoying Packard ownership. Why not phone, or drop in to see us? Here is what w« can show you ·with actual figures: That it coots no more to maintain and operate the Packard than any other car of Hke size and power, no matter what its first price. And that depreciation amounts to no more when you keep the Packard longer, as most Packard owners do. \ Packard cars are built for long life and complete reliability. This applies to the Packard Standard Eight, priced at the factory from $2385 to $2885, no less than to the larger, hearier Packard DeLuxe Eight, factory priced at from $3490 to $4285, and the Individual Custom Creations ranging up beyond $10,000. ^ Why not, then, take the first rtep toward Packard vwner- ship -- get in touch with us?
