FASHIONED for every taste- Priced for every BUDGET" Look over th« 1ISO Buick lint, which these two high-fashioned honeys,.represent, and decide for yourself if that's truth or just talk. Nineteen-¥•*/ It—smart new and varied models to choose from, and all with the eye-catching styling of bold-lined bumper-guard grilles, sleek tapering fenders, the over-all look of a jet plane in flight. Three full series—SPECIAL, SUPER and ROADM ASTER — with SPECIAL models available in both standard or de luxe finish. Thf«« ••parau power plants— in five horsepower ratings—all more powerful, higher in compression, all Fireball valve • in -heads— and one of them, the sensational new F-263, giving SUPER models extra brilliance on the road. r«nr whMlbMM —all planned for riding comfort —with overhang reduced to make parking and garaging easier. Roominess galore, with rear •eats as much as 13 inches wider. Plenty of outlook as well. And the •biding comfort of coil springs on all four wheels. And the steady going of M«M raw Skis* 4t«J«r torque-tube drive—plus Safety-Ride rims for comfort plus control. Then look at prices-do they really fit any budget? They range from the fine-car level of the ROADMASTER down to just- above-the-lowest figures on the SPECIAL. But even these are so little above anything else — buy you so many more years of happy use — and give you a car of such consistently-better trade-in value — that you'll find Buick reachable by buyers in any price range. So why not get the whole story, price and all, from your Buick dealer now? Deliveries are good, the "deal" is right, and a signed-up order steps you up to that Buick you've always dreamed about!
