Call it another triumph in Buiek's long history of coming up with oar performance beyond compare. But, sir, when you step into the sleek- lined traveler pictured here —hang on to your hat. For you'll be riding behind a power plant thai is not only new but a major sensation of the 1950 season. You'll be commanding the very latest word in valve-in-head power —the newest accomplishment of the organization with the country's longest stretch of experience in this engine design. Here every fist-size fuel charge now deliver! • bulkier wallop. Shorter, lighter connecting rods mean that pistons flash with faster and livelier action. Heavier crankshafts, floated on bigger, more rugged bearings, take this greater load and transmit its stepped-up surge to the drive shaft and rear wheels. And you, behind the wheel, wreathe your face in smites at the lift you find! At the trigger-quick take-off—the mile-eating cruising stride — your easy disdain for the passing gas pumps. You and your SUPER are really stepping out—and Buick's good name as "a sweetheart on the road" gains still more lustre. Nor u road-thrill the only blessing this new power plant brings. Simpler design makes service easier, so upkeep diminishes as a problem. Hydraulic valve-lifters keep valves properly seated for efficient operation—end for quiet unbroken by tappet noise. And you can have this power either with Buick's easy-shifting Synchro* Mesh transmission or the tilken luxury of Dynaflow Drive.* ; Either way, this SUPER it certainly something to see. To this top-notch new power it adds style end room, comfort and a wide outlook, toft easy stride and handier new over-all length. Even the price justifies a prompt trip to your Buick dealer to learn more about Buick for 1950.
