DE LUXE TYPES TO FEATURE
FORD DISPLAY AT AUTO SHOW Victoria Model Is Newest of - Many Types Offered by * Ford in 1931 De Luxe body types, most of which have been introduced within the last year, will feature the exhibit of Ford cars in the Bismarck auto show, ac cording to the Copelin Motor com pany, local dealer. Mounted on the Model A chassis, which has attained such world-wide popularity for speed, power, reliabili ity and economy of operation, these de luxe cars offer a wide range of body types that afford a new degree of comfort, luxury and beauty to the owner of a low-price car. As the name implies, the de luxe Fords are something out of the ordi nary. From the rustless steel cowl lights, to the quality upholstery, satin finish hardware, toggle grips, robe rails, dome lights and other refine ments, they reflect the tastes of dis criminating motorists. Newest among the de luxe Fords is the Victoria which is built along entirely new lines with a slanting windshield, light tan top and rear quarters, and a body which curves gracefully out and down from the belt line at the rear. The individ ual front seats fold forward. The rear seat is wide and comfortable with an arm rest at either end. Seven Models in Line Besides the Victoria, the Ford de luxe group includes the town sedan with three windows, the de luxe se dan with two windows, the convert ible cabriolet, a coupe, a phaeton and a roadster. In addition to the de luxe cars the Ford Motor company offers a choice of standard body types which are represented in the exhibition at the show*. These include the Tudor, a coach type popular as a family car; the Fordor, a threewindow sedan; the coupe; the sport coupe with mm PONTIAC GETTING FAVORABLE ATTENTION THROUGHOUT U. S. 60-Horsepower Car, Longer and More Beautiful, Hits Lowest Price Freshly styled for 1931 and present ing new elements of grace, comfort and performance, the Pontiac Six is a ttracting favorable attention throughout the country for the in creased values it is bringing to the low-priced field. It will be exhibited at tne Bismarck Auto show by the Stair Motor company. Although longer and more beauti fully proportioned than before, the big 60-horsepower car is offered at a base price below the minimum at which any Pontiac previously has been introduced. The longer wheelbase of 112 inches has permitted the designing of bodies which create a "close to the road” impression of low-swung length—the latest achievement of Fisher crafts men. Among the external advancements in the new bodies are: chrome-plated screen which conceals and protects the radiator core; curved tie-bar sup porting the new chrome-plated head lamps; longer hood secured by elec t ric-plated handle locks; one-piece lull crown fenders carrying indicator LOOK For the Seiberling Booth at the Auto Show Displaying The New Seiberling Triple Tread and Air Cooled Tire.

There is also a station wagon with seats for eight. An interesting thing about the Ford exhibit in the show is that, with the eception of the addition of de luxe cars, there are no radical changes in models. In accordance with the com pany's policy, improvements are in corporated in the car as they are de veloped and no radical changes are decided upon until it is determined that they are fundamentally sound enough to be more or less perma nent. Model A Improved Hence, while the Model A is essen tially the same as it was last year, it nevertheless has been improved in many respects. Fenders, running board shields and other enameled parts which are most likely to be scratched or marred are treated with a rust .preventative before they are painted. Triplex shatterproof wind shields now are made with plate glass to improve vision. The instrument panel is newly designed and is indi rectly lighted. Hub caps are rein forced and there are numerous oth er improvements that would be ap preciated by the mechanic, all of which contribute to the longer life of the car. Rustless steel which was introduced in Ford cars a year ago continues to be one of their outstanding features. Thousands of Fords have been in use now under all sorts of weather condi tions and the universal experience has been that the rustless steel radi ator shells, hub caps, cowl strips and other exposed metal parts have re tained their original lustre. Other features of the Ford which are being pointed out at the auto mobile show are the five steel-spoke wheels, each of which is electrically welded into a single piece; the Hou daille (pronounced hoo-dye) double acting shock absorbers; the more than 20 ball and roller bearings; and the numerous steel forgings. lamps similar to those introduced last year on the Oakland Eight. The concave running board aprons carry a smooth body contour to the aluminum-bound steel running boards, covered with moulded rubber while the rear splash apron extends from fender to fender. Comfort Is Assured Greater passenger comfort has been attained through sealing by felt and rubber pads, the pedal and control op ening, through heavy dash insulation which muffles road and engine sounds and keeps out motor heat by a felt-backed front floor mat. To render the body silent under road stresses, metal to metal contact has been eliminated where the body is joined to the frame through cush ioning by 10 fabric-reinforced rubber pads, enveloping the 10 body bolts, five on each side. The four engine mountings likewise are insulated with rubber, while the new transmission drive has been redesigned to include a rubber hub of the type that has been so successful on the Oakland. This hub forms a barrier against the “telegraphing” of road and axle noises to the engine. New rubber shackle bushings not only make for car si lence and easy riding but at the same time eliminate 12 chassis lubrication points. The newly developed semi-drop-base Attracts Favorable Attention PONTIAC SIX 1931 SPORT COUPE wheel rims are 5-16 of an inch wider than formerly, allowing the Id by 5 inch tires to carry a 13 per cent greater volume of air than similar tires on conventional rims. Install Larger Brakes Larger brakes have been installed to provide more certain control and greater safety. The drums of the four-wheel mechanical internal type brakes have been enlarged from 11 to 12-inch diameter, increasing the braking surface from 177 to 214 square inches, thus providing an add ed braking reserve of 21 per cent. A new engine device called the air silencer, developed by the AC Spark Plug company, eliminates carburetor and manifold roar during high speed operation. The cast iron transmis sion support and a new fully en closed fly-wheel housing which pro vides a rigid base for the transmis sion combine to eliminate the possi bility of mis-alignment between the transmission and the engine. At this point an additional motor support cross member Increases the rigidity of the heavier frame, now 17 per cent stronger vertically and 54 per cent stronger horizontally. A new and sturdier differential carrier housing and the new "big tooth” gears of the rear drive represent other factors which further increase reliability. The 1931 Pontiac is offered in six body types, the two- and four-door sedan, the four-door custom sedan, the standard and sport coupe and the convertible coupe.

SKEELS WILL NAME MOTOR AFTER SPEED KIWI Kaye Don Will Be Honored De spite Fact He Failed to Establish Record London, March 12.—(NEA)—Mal colm Campbell set a new speed rec ord in the United States and Kaye Don failed. Yet the latter is to re ceive the honor of having England’s newest motor named for him. The new car, called the Kaye Dm, will be put on the market by a Cov entry firm shortly. It was designed by Sir Dennistoun Burney, one of the designers of the dirigible R-100. The same streamlining effect used on the dirigible has been carried out on the new car. In the Kaye Don model pains have been taken to cut down wind resistance to the mini- mum and the resulting design is something new in automobiles, al though it is not to the point of being freakish.
