R BACK-SEAT BOUNCE. The only cushion- ing many '59 cars could squeeze in ovov their high floor hump is a layer of spring and a jute pad. But Mercury's lowered hump made space for full cushioning. ENTER-PHOBIA. This new ailment besets you when you try to get into other '59 cars. Do you back in? (~rawl in? Fall in? It's hard to tell which. But ~,ercury has the right remedy: door openings are 6 ches wider. There's up to 2 inches more head ~ earance. You step in easily_without a twinge. YOU'LL HAVE NEW CAR EXCEPT MERCURY CLOSE-TOOETHERNESS. Other '59 cars make friendships too close. But Mercury moved the dashboard for- 'ward for 9 ~ more knee room. There's more leg room, more elbow room _. more usable room all around. DOOR-ITIS OF THE KNEE. Other '5~ cars have jutting windshield posts , that threaten to de-cap your knees! But Mercury moved that windshield post forward 2 inches. It's easy to step in without hitting your knee. STORMY-WEATHER TWITCH. Wipers in other cars, do not clear the center of the wind- shield, so you have to peek through 2 fan- shaped sections. But Mercury's wipers have an overlapping pattern_clear a five- foot swath_including the center. You drive relaxed in all kinds of weather. MIDDLE.MAN CROUCH. That hump in the floor of other '59 cars is now larger than ever. It makes the man in the middle sit with his knees at his chin. But Mercury cut the hump in half! Now the middle man has room to stretch out. ALL THIS AND ECONOMY, TOO. Mercury's quality construction means lower maintenance cost. The Monterey's special Economy V-8 engine means more miles-per-gallon. And don't forget Mercury's traditionally high resale value. In short, Mercury gives you more car for your money when you buy--more money for your car when you trade. 20th ANNIVERSARY BUILT TO LEAD-BUILT TO LAST 202 EAST, LIBERTY STREET CHARLES TOWN, . I II [ &
