The Algona Upper Des Moines It's Kossuth County's Favorite Newspaper They it up for the F IHST THING you need in a car, ol course, is power to spark performance 1 . And you get that in a 1956 Buick in plenty — from big 322-cubic-inch V8 engines that hit new highs in horsepower and compression. But the power under the hood must be carried to the rear driving wheels in the form of twisting force on the drive shaft. That's torque — the end-product of your transmission. And the higher the torque build-up — the greater the "torque multiplication" in starting and accelerating—the better the getaway and response. So if you want to feel take-off that leaves your breath behind you, come try a '56 Buick with Variable Pitch Dynaflow.* For in this airplane-principled transmission, Buick engineers raised the ceiling on torque to give you the best getaway yet. They did it with something they call "double regeneration"—a new way to make flowing oil add to its own velocity. And lihcn you use the full torque of a Btiick beauty like the one pictured ahovc, you refusing the highest torque multiplication to be had in any standard-production American automobile today. Corne see for yourself what that means in new thrills and new safety. You'll find brilliant new getaway response in the Erst inch of pedal travel-plus greater gas mileage to boot. You'll find an electrifying new safety-surge of full-power acceleration when you floor the pedal and switch the pitch. And you'll find this spectacular performance blended into the smoothest-traveling, the sweetest-riding, the highest-powered and the easiest-handling liuicks yet built. Drop in on us this week—today, if you can—and ' judge things firsthand. *New Advanced Variable fitch Dynaflow is the only Dyriafloto Buifk builds today. It is standard on Rtiudnuister, Super and Century—optional at modest extra cost on the Special. birthday.
