When you press the pedal as you normally would, you move ahead in velvety smoothness, getting plenty of miles from each gallon of gas ... Because twenty propeller-like blades inside the Dynaflow unit, spinning in oil, have an angle of "pitch" lor top economy - like the modern plane's propellers when cruising hi the air. But conies the need for emergency acceleration, and—like a pilot does for quick take-off and climb—you switch the pitch of those Dynaflow propellers for action, just by pressing the pedal all the way down. Instantly, you get full-power response for split-second getaway, or for a 'sudden safety-surge to get out of a tight spot on the highway. It's a response thrilling beyond all previous experience — because there's never been anything like it before in any car. And we'd like you to try it—along with the walloping new V8 power, the cruiser-steady ride, the fine handling ease, and the true big-car roominess that are all part and parcel of every Buick.
