THE TWO-WINDOW TOWN SEDAN The LINCOLN START out early in the morning, drive five hundred miles, and arrive at your destination so refreshed and relaxed that, if you desire, you can play golf before sundown. ... Seasoned travelers know best how comfortable and secure the Lincoln is. This car has the power to speed up and across the Great Smokies, without a suggestion of labor from the V-12, 150-horsepower engine. Around hairpin curves, the rear of the Lincoln cleaves to the road. You need not shift gears on the downgrade. Narrow and rocky stretches, full of ruts, pass smoothly and almost unnoticed. Long springs, and shock-absorbers automatically adjustable to road conditions cushion each potential blow. Your grip on the steering wheel is light. Deeply upholstered seats enable you to relax completely .... Clear-vision ventilation system. New single-plate clutch. Improved brakes. Faster acceleration, so that you go from 20 to 50 miles an hour, upgrade, apparently without pressing the foot throttle. Two wheelbases-standard and custom-built body types. From $3200, at Detroit.
