IT'S THE NEW"DOUBLE-LIFE" GMC
THE NEW GMC light-duty is very much at home among the smartest passenger cars.
But even more important to most owners are the steely stamina, the smoother power and the extra features that put a GMC beyond the old buying standard of first cost alone.
A GMC's extra life - by itself - knocks the price-tag factor into a cocked hat.
Take operating expense. Only a GMC has a fast-ratio cruising axle - at no extra cost - that brings you the gas savings and better road pace of a costly overdrive.
Take maintenance. The heftiest rear axle of the light-duties rear springs with the highest deflection rate of the lot - take extra strains without flinching -or failure.
And they have a GMC-built truck engine that puts out a torrent of power-without being revved up to life-shortening speeds. "Easy does it" is the GMC way.
Go over a GMC. The sharper you look, the more reasons you'll find for owning one-and saving money every day you drive it. See your GMC dealer now.

POWER PLANT OF A GIANT.
This 200-h.p. GMC built truck VS engine also powers GMC models for heavy-duty use on and off the highway.
BUILT LIKE THE BIG ONES.
GMC's light-duties benefit from the same methods and materials used in the giant haulers for which GMC is famous.
