"They got new styling, features, too—' "I bought a 'deal'-boo-hoo, boo-hooF Moral: Yesterday's looks and features are no bargain at any price! No car is a bargain if it's obsolete in styling and engineering features. And the Swept-Wing Dodge actually obsoletes other cars in its field with its low, low look of tomorrow and. revolutionary advances like Torsion-Aire Ride, Push- Button TorqueFlite and Total-Contact Brakes. So don't get "bargain-talked" into yesterday's styling and features. The same money buys the car that's years ahead. See your Dodge dealer. JOl'll the SWl'ng tO the Swept-Wl'Hg Dodg6. DrinK
