May promises to out-do record-breaking April. With retail deliveries much greater than current production, June will surely see a shortage of Packard cars. As a matter of fact, there is already a shortage in several models. Quality cannot be hurried nor production doubled quickly. . Among the cars on which prompt delivery can still be made' is the Packard Six Five-Passenger Sedan." This car. the most popular of all Packard models, costs but $292-0 at your door with freight and tax paid. When bought on the payment plan the sum of S9.80 is required on delivery with payments of $185 per month'. If you have a used car it will be appraised fairly in this, the best used car, market of the year, and its value applied against the delivery payment on the new car. Any excess will be credited against the monthly payments. If you cannot come to our store, a telephone call will bring a car to your door- for examination and any demonstration you may desire.
