MM’S SHOWROOM OF 1936 AUTOMOBILES

Epitomizing the pinnacle of motoring luxury, the 1936 Packard sedan (above) will add new laurels to Packard craftsmanship. It features independent front wheel suspension, automatic chassis lubrication, and cool mixture carburetion.

Here is a cut-away photo of the Packard carburetion system. Raw gasoline cannot flood the motor as it drops into the vaporizing chamber where hot manifold converts it into gas.

Upholding Buick’s reputation for dependability and exceptional performance will be this sleek sport coupe (above) of Buick Series 40. It is powered by a 93-horsepower straight eight engine of valve-in-head design. One of its features is the new light-pressure clutch, shown at left. To provide additional smoothness when the clutch takes hold, individual cushioning springs are inserted between the fabric facing and metal base.

Oldsmobile remains in the forefront in style streamlining with its 1936 models, and in addition has added several new refinements and mechanical features. The sedan model is at right.

Adhering closely to the lines which made it so popular in 1935, the 1936 Chrysler has centered its attention upon added refinements in interior appointments and riding comfort. Left—A view of the rear wheel suspension of the 1936 Pontiac, showing sealed spring, shock absorber, hydraulic brake cable, and the oversize brake drum.

Above—The 1936 Chrys-ler Airflow as it will appear when you meet it on the highway. It is when seen from this angle that the airflow lines are most apparent, the fenders, hood, cowling and body blending together harmoniously.

Described by its maker as the strongest, fastest, safest and most economical car they have ever built, the 1936 Pontiac, above, also reflects the last word in beautiful design.

Chevrolet presents the 1936 sedan featuring a new completeness in appointments and conveniences. Chevrolet also features hydraulic brakes, at diagramed at left.

Safety Is Predominant Factor In 1936 Cars

In addition to present-ing new roomy comfort, this Hudson 6 features Radial safety control used by Sir Malcolm Campbell.

The striking design of the new Hudson is further emphasized in the interior by the instrument panel.

Engineered safety in body, steering, brakes, and springs features this new Terraplane. Above is the 88 horsepower Terraplane motor.

More than 400 rubber parts, totaling SO pounds of rubber exclusive of tires, serve to cushion this 1936 Plymouth from all types of vibration, body rumble, and road shocks. Non-glaring headlights penetrate fog and rain, while improved hydraulic brakes add to the car’s safety. The Plymouth is longer and lower than before, adding to its smart appearance.

    Significantly absent is the 1936 Cord 810/812 series, a design and technological breakthrough:
