This eliminates the hazard of injury from flying shattered glass. These NEW STUTZ models are the first cars ever regu larly equipped with safety-glass all around. The world's safest automobile is now made still safer for its occupants. No other car has this combination of safety features: Safety-glass in windshield and all windows. Narrow, clear-vision front corner-posts. Frame of unequalled strength and rigidity, with integral steel running-boards ("side bumpers"). Perfect road balance; elimination of side-sway achieved by scientific frame and spring ar rangement. Stabilators and long, low-rate flat springs co - ordinated for ideal action.
