Style note for Spring

IT’S the style this year to have a car you can see out of. And in the Buick pictured here, the total glass area has been increased 412 square inches — all safety plate glass — with 30 per cent more area in the windshield alone. That increased visibility gives you a view of the traffic — and the world around you—that’s a new note in safety too in General Motors cars this year Add to this the honest craftsmanship, the solid comfort and silent security you get in Body by Fisher — add the convenience and protection of Fisher No Draft Ventilation and you’ll know why smart motorists say . . . “For ’39, better pick the car with Body by Fisher,” which means a General Motors car of course.

“BUICK’S THE BEAUTY” quite obviously in more ways than one. And you get more than a hint of that from, its new Body by Fisher—a beauty on all counts — in style, safety, luxury and comfort.

on General Motors cars only: Chevrolet • Pontiac • Oldsmobile • Buick • La Salle • Cadillac
