flE--July 30, 1972 Sunday Gazettf-Mail ChwlMton, wÂ«Â«t Vlrtlnu How to Buy Linda Annette Stewart, Josephine Lynn Bergeron h Bride Many Cars Now~Are Cheaper DavidAufmu * Married Per Pound Than Meat Cuts By Sidney Margolius Consumer Expert for Sunday Gazette-Mail The late-summer discounts on new cars have reduced the price of moderate-size models to less than even the usual $l a pound oast of the compact models .($2,000 for a 2,000- pound car). At.the same time, the latest upsurge in meat prices; has increased the price of many meat cuts to over $1 a pound, especially for beef. In fact, .the average price of ten popular cuts of meat we checked, including seven beef items, 'two pork, and one lamb, came to $1.05 a pound by late July. Thus, this summer you may have a choice between being a vegetarian on wheels or a walking meat eater. Here are some guidelines for ctroins; with both problems as best you can: Cars, 1972 vs. 1973: The discounts on current-year cars available in August and September can yield a double bonus this year; the extra allowance itself, plus the saving on the higher prices scheduled for the, 1973 cars. We estimate that list prices of the forthcoming 1973 cars will be afcbut $50 to $100 higher. As this is written, Chrysler has asked the Price Commission for an average increase of 1.9 per cent; General Motors, 2 per cent; and AMC, 5 per cent. Ford is expected to ask for less than 2 per cent. The Price Commission plans to be firm about increases on the 1973 cars, a spokesman says. Some of the anticipated increases are due to government-mandated safety and anti-pollution devices on the models. The manufacturers are not seeking an additional profit on these, but want to recover their costs. Apparently t h e y ' r e not going to get much more than that from the commission since the larger manufacturers have had a profitable year and already are bumping their permitted profit margins. The commission is taking a special look at the auto price requests because of the impact of car prices on the cost of living index, and feels that it will establish credibility by -holding down new car prices. The increases probably will average under 2 per cent. BUT-WHILE this may be the Price Commission's finest hour, as far as car buyers are concerned the price reductions resulting from the repeal of the excise tax late in 1971 have been pretty much eaten up by the 1972 and forthcoming 1973 increases. The elimination of the excise tax reduced prices of some compact cars almost S100. The compacts still are about $25 cheaper than before. We estimate that their 1973 list prices will range from $2,225. to $2,430, not including any optional equipment, freight charges or sales taxes. But significantly and harmfully to working people, prices on the lower-price standard or full-size cars have gone up more than 'the higher-price makes; about $385 on the lower end of the price range to $240 on the upper end. Generally in the specialty "almost-sports" cars the upper price range is down about $100 but cars on the lower end of the range will be up by about $100, thus narrowing the range available to the buyer of this tyj)e6f car. Â· Discount Range How much discount can you expect in the clearances of '72 models or if you subsequently shop for a '73 car? Discounts are lowest on sub-compacts such as Pinto, Gremlin, Cricket, Vega and Colt, and the imported small cars, and also on the compacts such as Valiant, Maverick, Hornet and Nova. Most of the list prices allow the dealer a margin of 14 to 16 per cent of the list price, or about $240 to $340. At this time of year you may be able to get a discount of $50 to $150, depending on the supply situation and how much year-end merchandising allowance the factory is giving its dealers. Or you may merely get an additional accessory such as a radio without charge. You can expect larger discounts in the intermediate class, which includes such models as Dart, Skylark' Coronet, Chevelle, Torino and M a t a d o r . Dealers usually have a margin of 19 por cent or about S500 to work with, plus even higher margins of 16 to 21 per cent on accessories. The exceptions are Ventura II and Dart which have margins of 15 per cent or about S3BO. On full-size popular-price cars, dealer margins on the car itself typically are 21 to 24 per cent, or $800 to $900, except for Dodge and Plymouth which have 15 per cent margins, or about $650. Dealers often also get an additional 2 per cent rebate from the factories at the end of the year to help them give additional discounts, or $60 on a $3,000 car. MEAT VS. BANKRUPTCY: August probably will mark the high point for meat prices for the year, if not for known history. Prices will start coming down in the fall when more supplies arrive. Some of the meat coming into markets is reported to be "green" and may need tenderizing and moist cookery. Many families tend to avoid, in hot weather, cuts like chuck which require long cooking. Thus, chuck currently is a relatively better value at this time. Boneless chuck also is cheaper than stew beef if you want to cut it up yourself. The other relatively good value in meat is smoked pork shoulder. Unfortunately, hot weather also increases demand for and prices of broilers. Still, these, eggs and cheese are the lower-cost alternatives to meat if you don't want to go completely vegetarian. Prices of canned tuna fish are relatively low this year. MRS. D. A.
