When you sample its ride, its handling and the silken liveliness of its big Fireball straight- eight power plant, you are likely to ticket it in the near-luxury class. So, naturally, v.'hen we put the question to a cross section of carwise men and women--when ·we asked them to name their idea of the delivered price for a Buick SUPER -- 7 out of 10 guessed too high! The fact is that--in relation to today's values--Buick prices begin at a lower level than before the war. Dollar-wise, all prices are up -but Buick cars are not up as much as most other things -- or even as much as the cost of building them. So don't jump to conclusions without a bit of shopping around. Get the delivered prices -- not only on Buick but on others, too--including cars with far less power, far less heft, far less room and far less distinction. You'll find that a lot of folks are paving within a few dollars of the price of a Buick -- or maybe more than the price of a Buick -- and getting something that can't hold a. candle to what a Buick has to offer. You'll find that price comparison gives you another sound reason for getting your firm order in -- particularly since your Buick dealer will take it with or without a car to trade.
