YOU EXPECT some improvements in any new car a s s
But double your expectations! You'll still fall 'way short
of the wealth of beauty and improvements with which General
Motors has endowed the 1934 air-stream Oldsmobiles. 1
Knee-Action Wheels! Each front wheel, cushioned on its own
flexible coil spring, moves up and down like a knee "walks"
over bumps and holes without jarring the car or the passengers.
Center-Control Steering banishes shimmy and shake. The
slightest finger touch holds the car to its course. A built-in Ride
Stabilizer prevents sway and roll on curves.Thcre is a steadiness
and a clinging-to-the-road almost unbelievable. '
Stopping? The new self-energizing Super-Hydraulic Brakes
do it quicker, surer, safer. These new brakes are a tremendous .
'advancement over the conventional type of hydraulic brake.
More room? It's there. Quietness? It's there. Oldsmoblle's
Syncro-Mesh Transmission is quiet in ALL speeds; body and
engine are cradled in rubber to absorb vibration. '
Power? 90 horsepower in the new Straight Eight i ; i 84 in the
new low-price Six. The priceless year-round comfort of Fisher
No Draft Ventilation. Precision-built throughout with all the
ruggedness, performance and economy for which OldsmobUe
is famous.
Come in. Whether you plan to buy a new car or not, give your
self the pleasure of looking at, sitting in, driving a 1934 Style
Leader OldsmobUe. (
