4-Algano (fa.) Upper DM Melnes Tuesday, October 2, 1964 The Fiction Of Automobile Credit About G4 percent of new car owners and 75 percent of used bought their cars on finance from dealers last year. The rates and terms they bought on were; available from all dealers though Some buyers might have been confused into thinking otherwise. It is when finance terms are Used as advertising bail that (he public sometimes gpts fooled. "No money down" for instance can actually mean that. You won't have to lay out any cash but you'll have to put up your used car as down pay m e n t. If you haven't one then a small loan on usurious terms from a separate loan company D. NELSON can » s « a lly be arranged. TWO separate payments will then become due each month to both companies. An especially low interest rate such as •)'•! percent is not reall what it seems. For one thing it i. not simple interest but a "multi plier" percentage based on the TOTAL unpaid balance for the en tire term of the contract. Additional flat charges usually accompany extra low percentages along with special conditions of credil rating. New cars can often be purchased on 48-month terms PROVIDING the purchaser has excellent credit and has made a substantial down payment. Though a purchaser should realize the longer the terms the greater the interest charges. If you purchase your car from us it can be financed any way you wish it with dignity and confidence. In every case the rates are as low and the terms as extensive as you'll find anywhere.
