The 1973 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency Walter Hoving, Chairman of Tiffany's, says it's a car for people with good design judgment. Maybe you'll agree. Maybe you won't. But if you're going to invest $5,000 or more in a luxury car,shouldn't you at least come in and see? "The Ninety-Eight Regency is a car that people with good design judgment will appreciate" Mr. Hoving may be somewhat prej udiced-his company designed the timepiece facing on the dash, and it bears the Tiffany name. And that fact itself suggests the kind of quality and elegance you may expect in the Ninety-Eight Regency. The Regency interior is ex traordinary. Seat cushions and backs are tailored to create a soft, pillowed effect, like that of fine furniture. Zip pered storage pouches are sewn into the front seat-backs. And a distinctive limousine-quality velour is included amongyour upholstery choices. At Oldsmobile, we feel a car priced $5000 or more should be superior to an ordinary car. Not merely in room, ride, comfort and luxury but in handling, responsiveness and roadability as well. And we think you'll agree. There are some other American , cars that can be considered in Ninety j Eight's class. And most are more ex pensive. But we don't think they're any more car. Oldsmobile. Always a step ahead. 1973 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight. Drive it and draw your own conclusion.
