So they're not content to stop with putting beneath you cushions that are luxuriously soft and deep. They also put big, soft, deep coil springs between you and all four wheels-anil big, soft tii ~s between the wheels nnd the road. .Out real riding comfort calls for more than cushioning up-and-down jolts and jurs. There's end-sway nnd side-roll and "wander" to he controlled. There's sure-footed balance on curves. Not lo mention the importance of having a frame stout and husky enough to make the whole car feel safely solid. ' So Buick engineers have gone through the list -come up with a ride that cost a cool million dollars and more for special engineering, tooling and components. I Joes that cover Buick's comfort story? It certainly docs not. There's the comfort of driving a car that instinctively holds the road — the comfort of ample room nnd a wide-open view of the world around you —the comfort of fabric colors that please the eye and fabric textures that please the touch —and the effortless smoothness of Dynaflow Drive.* Their there's the mental comfort of bossing power mighty enough to meet any demand yon make upon it in emergency—S-cylindcr power — high-compression power — valve-in-head power-Fireball power, that makes you proud of the miles you get from a gallon of gas. /Vnd maybe you'll also find comfort in knowing that this great automobile can be yours at a price that is still just a small step above what's known as "the low-priced three." On top of all this, driving a Buick's a barrel ol fun. Why not drop in tomorrow and ask us to prove it? \nr,l C""- ••.-rj^r.l „„ KtUDXA!
