Nights Til 9:00 GOOD/YEAR SERVICE STORE Like the man* says, you have to get behind the wheel From the pages of Automotive News, authoritative industry newspaper, comes this impartial report on the newest car in the world *by L. H. HOUCK Traveling Correspondent, Automotive News "The Edsel is a car that should be road- tested. "We have all driven cars with lazy front ends, but here is one that has life—the Edsel seems to know where you're going. With the surge of power from the new engine, it is equal to all occasions and yet the wheel rests lightly in your hands. Driving is almost effortless, yet with a confidence-inspiring feeling of control. . "Wherever you go the Edsel attracts attention. At one place, in the almost 1,500 miles we drove this Edsel two-door hardtop Pacer, some kids across the street from a service station shouted: 'Hey, look! An Edsel!' "If I were selling this car from the retail floor, 1 just wouldn't overlook anybody. It' has something that will appeal to every type of buyer. IF DRIVING TIRES YOU "If driving on long trips or in dense city traffic tires you, then the Edsel is the car ' for you. "Why is this so? Much of it has been engineered into the car from the first plan on the drawing boards. Much of it comes from reduced motion. You can control the automatic transmission by easy, power-operated pushbuttons in the hub of the steering wheel. The novice will get accustomed to them in five minutes, no matter what car he is driving, because they're as handy as a pocket in a shirt and a lot closer. "The man who fights traffic to work and back twice a day needs to learn how much an Edsel can do for him. It'll be a revelation and. save half his energy. "Much of it comes from the 'all go and no slow' engine which it has, coupled -with big, fast operating, self-adjusting brakes. These new brakes adjust themselves and can save a man a lot of dollars during a normal term of ownership. STAINLESS STEEL USE "What's it made out of and how long will it last? The Edsel bill of materials includes nothing but quality. In stainless steel alone, it probably leads the list, for it has 36 pounds of this non-rusting and almost indestructible material in every car. Everybody likes to own this kind of quality. CAN'T MISTAKE EDSEL "If you've ever owned a medium-priced or better car and had a service station attendant mistake it for a cheaper car, you'll know what Edsel engineers were striving for when they said they wanted to design a car that could be identified in the dark. "You don't have to rub the dust off the nameplate on the Edsel to discover its identity. From front or rear, you can tell an Edsel a block away. IF YOU DRIVE FOR A LIVING "I stopped a taxi driver who was using an Edsel. " 'Do a day and a half in a day now,' he said, 'or at least I feel that much better when. I get home at the end of a shift. It's easy, arm-chair comfort.' "You don't have to be carrying the mail to have a job that requires going every day in all kinds of weather. Edsel has speed for turnpikes, expressways and open highways and roadabffity for the logging road, the byway and the farm lane. MOST PRE-TESTED CAR "Some prospect is sure to say that the Edsel is too new, intimating that it is untried, and if he's like the thousands who have gone before him, he will say that he'll wait a few years and see how it turns out. "The Edsel is undoubtedly the most pre- tested car ever offered to the public. "Edsel test drivers raced 38 Edsels for a total of 1,500,000 miles over a two-year test period. Punishment? They drove these miles in the 118-degree heat of Death Valley and the 40-below cold of Minnesota. "Back of it is 50 years—half a century of engineering skill—11 years of actual planning and testing. The Edsel's got more that's new than any new car has ever had, and 4!! the new has been virtually tested to destruction. MORE NEW IDEAS "Edsel offers a lot to the gadget-minded. For example, every salesman has heard owners wish for an oil gauge on the dash. Edsel has a row of warning, b'ghts on the dash. One warns when oil is one quart low, another when the gas tank has only two gallons left, another warns of a hot engine. . "Edsel offers a tachometer as an option and this tachometer sports a couple of green dots, one at about 900 r.p.m. and the other at about 2500. When the owner keeps the needle between those dots he knows he is operating the engine at its greatest economy." HAVE YOU ROAD-TESTED THE NEWEST CAR IN THE WORLD? It's an experience no one should miss. When you do, your Edsel Dealer will give you a scale-model Edsel as a gift for your child. This 8-inch, full-color, precision-made plastic model has movable wheels, rubber tires, traction drive. EDSEL DIVISION • FORD MOTOR CO.
