B. MONTGOMERY Flowing Contours For Smooth Riding Commenting on the new Fords /or 1949, Mr. Hand of Hand Motor company said today: “Revolutionary changes in the 1949 line of Ford cars is reflected in the styling, utility and rugged ness of the station wagon and con vertible models. The 1949 station wagon is the only one in the low priced field with a two-door all-steel body. Beauty of wood paneling has been considerably enhanced by this modern design- Plywood veneer pa nels of selected hardwoods are bolt ?d directly to the steel body.” The 1949 convertible is long, low and graceful, yet embodies all the advanced engineering provided in other body styles. There is srca','i comfort, performance and economy. The front seat is six and a halt inches wider, and the rear seat two and a half inches wider than the 1948 models. There is room enough for six persons. Luggage space un der the rear deck totals 28 cubic feet, nearly twice as much as in previous models, and all usable. Mr. Hand advises that the ride of the new convertible has been improved with low frequency “Hy dra Coil” Springs In front, and ex tra-iong longitudinal springs at the rear combined with direct acting airplane type shock absorbers. According to a veteran Ford test driver: “It rides like a car five hun dred pounds heavier and performs like a car five hundred pounds lighter.” 9 for the new year beginning July 1.
