With this, provision for center parking,

WHEN you buy a used or rebuilt car
from me you buy a car exactly as rep
resented. Many people change models each
year with the result that wo have really
good cars that represent considerable sav
ing to the buyer. Some are entirely rebuilt
making them practically new.
Many people think a good used car will
give more service and is better value than
a new car of a cheaper class.
All cars sold bv us aro guaranteed to be
exactly as we represent them.
