And you can easily learn that here is power a-plenty—the highest V8 power, Series for Series, in the annals of Buick hi.story. But what you can never know, till you fry it yourself, is the feel of a liuick in motion. It's a ride as precision-soft and firm as only coiled steel can mqke it. / Yes, coil springs on all four wheels. And a full-length torque-tube drive for true tracking. And a massive X-braced frame for solid steadiness. And specially calibrated shock absorbers, V-braced struts, wide-rim wheels, a unique front-end geometry—plus a host of other betterments too numerous to mention. You feel the result of this advanced engineering every mile you drive — in what is literally and figuratively a Million Dollar Hide. You feel it in the superb and buoyant cradling. You feel it in the serene levelness of your going over ruts and ridges. You feel it in the precise snubbing of jars and jounces. You feel it in a*new kind of steadiness, handling ease, curve control. Only thing for you to do, we believe, is to come try this miracle of motion—and we'll be glad to oblige. That way you'll also learn firsthand about the style, the power, and the value that have made Buick such a best-selling success this year. For Buick today is outselling all other cars in A werica except two of the so-called ''low-price three."
