Uppsr 0«s Mdintr Tuesday, May 8, T'S as simple as this; Only two cars in all creation outsell Buk-k. And llicy arc two oi the well-known smaller cars. So maybe it will pay you to ask how come JUiick has zoomed to the No. 3 .spot with such fast-selling company. Well, one answer is the beautiful and brawny Buick SriiCUL you sec pictured here — and the low price it carries. It's the bii^est bundle of higli-powercti performance and high-fashion luxury ever oilered in Buick's lowest- priced Series. And that means more people want it and can afford it, because it's priced only a tew dollars more, than its two smaller-car rivals—even I en a than some models of those very same cars. 15ut the bifi answer comes from a sure fact more folks have discovered: i/uu net more ]nirc automobile fof ijmii' intinct/ in Httick than you <j.c(, elscii'lu're. liciv, you t;el the extra wallop oi big new JJuick power raised to a new high —and pouring in smooth whisper from a brand-new 322-eubie-inch YS engine ol trna high compression.
