THE mechanical performance of General
Motors cars is tested and proved on
General Motors' 1,245 acre Proving Ground.
Before any new model is put in production,
it must pass more than 135 different tests for
power, speed, durability and general per
formance. As to the appearance and comfort of
General Motors cars, we invite you to be the
judge. Every closed body is built by Fisher
the largest builder of automobile bodies in the
world. The experience and the vast production
of the Fisher Company mean more beauty,
more comfort, and more luxury than you will
find anywhere else at corresponding prices.
We invite you to check, on the coupon be
