They can get everything out of them that there is to get. But maybe you'd like the thrill of a brand-new engine in your car. If so, we're'ready to do that job too —ready to put a straight-from-the- factory engine in any Buick built since 1937. You get an entirely new engine. It has a hew carburetor and air cleaner. It has a new distributor with both vacuum and centrifugal spark control. It has new wiring and spark plugs—even a ne^ smooth clutch that eases every start and makes driving fun.' On top of all that, this engine brings youthelatestBuickfeaturesyouread about- 1 -features like precision cylinder boring and Flex-Fit oil rings, Stratoflow cooling and all, the rest. We have these enginessfor you right now because Buick engine production is running ahead of complete car output^. " . - So, in less tune than a good overhaul would take—and frequently at less cost—you can have a car with everything a brand-new-Buick engine can give you, and a car worth much . more when you're ready to turn it in. Good deal, isn't it? Worth looking into? Drop around and let us give you all the facts arid figures. 104 NO.
