THE OPEN MIND
THE public, with it3 healthy decire for the
new and the better, insists upon continuous
improvement, and will withdraw its patronegc
from any product or service v/hich stands still.
Nowhere is this more true than in the auto
mobile industry. The car is more than a utility.
It is a personal thing, involving your conven
ience, your comfort, your safety, your sense of
beauty and color, your pride of ownership, your
complete environment for many hours of your
life. Customs and habits of living change fast;
and the past holds many warnings of how quickly
your favor can shift when an automobile, for even
a single year, fails to show progress.
So continuous improvement is more than a
policy with General Motors. It is a vital necessity.
THE PUBLIC DEMANDS NEW MODELS
And the public is right. Out of that demand
have come electric starting and lighting, the
dosed body, Duco finish, four-wheel brakes and
hundreds of refinements, big and little. Improve
ments that might have taken a generation have
been bom within a few years because people want
greater performance, beauty and comfort.
Equipped with the largest research laborato
ries, proving ground and body building plants, and
guided by an Open Mind which is ready to revise
its thinking in response to new facts, General
Motors believes that it is peculiarly fitted not only
to sense but to anticipate public demand and to
give the people better automobiles at better
values year after year.
As evidence of that faith we presented some
months ago the New Chevrolet, the New Pontiac,
the New Oldsmobile. And now we offer, with
equal pride, the New Buick, the New Cadillac,
the New LaSalle and the New Oakland.

THE NEW ALL-AMERICAN SIX
Completely new and original in ap
pearance, with a host of advanced en
gineering features, the latest Oakland
All-American Six went on display
here today at the showrooms of Smith
£• Warner, local Oakland and Pontiac
Smarter, roomier than a year ago,
with bodies of distinctive design, and
a chassis said to be the last word in
mechanical refinement, the latest All
American model bears only a passing
resemblance to its famous predeces
sor—the first All-American Six
brought out by the Oakland Motor
Car Company a year ago.
Briefly, the new line offers a big
ger, faster, more powerful engine; new
Oakland type internal expanding 4
wheel brakes; masterful body crea
tions by Fisher! new Duco color com
binations; higher, larger cross-flow
radiator with grill front; adjustable
driver’s seat; chrome plated lamps of
new design; sturdy ten-spoke wheels;
(Lovejoy shock absorbers and spring
covers as standard equipment; new
steering gear; sturdier frame, and a
host of other improvements that are
destined to make the car a dis
tinguished addition to the aristocratic
motor car family of America.
Already a million miles have been
piled up by test cars on the General
Motors Proving Ground. Although
brand new to the public, it is a thor
oughly seasoned product with the
equivalent of many years of owner
service already to its credit.
Seven passenger types comprise the
line: sport roadster, sport phaeton,
coupe, 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan, and
a new laundaulet sedan and convert
, Artisans of the Fisher organization
wi^h Oakland engineers have achieved
| a new grace of body lines and a sym
metry and proportion exclusive in the
Oakland field. The new laundaulet se
dan, with its fabric covered rear quar
tev section which may be quickly rais
ed or lowered, has an air of custom
The rear seats of all five passenger
models are two inches wider this year
to provide increased elbow room and
to add to the comfort of passengers.
This change has been effected without
increasing the tread.
Closed bodies all have adjustable
drivers's seat, reveals around side
w’indows set off by a narrow bead,
single belt moulding starting at radia
tor and completely encircling the body,
smart side cowl ventilators, new type
military sun visors, and hardware de
signed exclusively for Oakland. On
individual body types are walnut fin
ished door panels, Axminister carpet
in tonneau, embossed leather smoking
sets, package space, luggage room in
rear deck and many other popular
features adding to the luxury of the
ihe newly tashioned hood has a
chrome plated top hinge and vertical
louvres in five groups of four each on
either side to achieve a swagger air.
Parking lamps are mounted on a
chrome plated cowl bar.
Small diameter wood wheels are
standard equipment on all models.
Ten heavy spokes, eight-inch flanges
and large hub caps stamped with the
new Oakland shield offer a picture in
line with the current mode. Tire size
remains at 29 by 5.50, oversize for
A powerful new engine, offering
flashing performance at every speed
range, has been achieved by stepping
up the cylinder disp': rrent to 288
cubic inches as against 212 in the
earlier model. This, in conjunction
with other engine changes, results in
a top speed of well over seventy miles
an hour and quick acceleration of
from ten to 25 miles an hour in high
gear in six seconds flat.
Increased displacement was brought
about by enlarging the cylinder bore
from 3Vi inches to 3 3-8 inches. The
improved engine developes 68 brake
horse power at 3,000 r. p. m.
Increased braking piwer with a
minumum of pedal pressure is achiev
ed by new Oakland designed brakes, of
the mechanical four-wheel type, self
energizing, with internal expanding
shoes on all four wheels. Individual
adjustments are located at each wheel,
and equalization has been entirely

The frame has been strengthened
for increased ruggedness and safety.

size this year to fifteen gallons.

the smart side cowl ventilators.
All bodies are slightly wider also
across the dash to make for increased
comfort of possengers in the front
compartment. The semi-coincidental
transmission lock is retained this year
as is the theft-proof door lock which
will not yield to the application of a
wrench to the door handle.
The striking new beauty of this la
te t All-American, and the better
stamina and performance built into the
sturdier engine and improved chassis,
lent substance to the confidence of
Oakland officials that the car will
prove the most successful Oakland
brought out since the organization of
