first duty is to build for American defense – it has yet
another duty to the American public. And that is to build the
soundest, the safest, and the longest-lived cars it knows how to
produce. Consequently, you will find, in this year's Pontiacs, the
finest quality we have ever offered. The 1942 Pontiacs ride better
– they handle more easily – and they have better
roadability. But what is even more significant – they remain
unchanged in those vital units which mean the most to
dependability and long life-pistons, bearings, crankshafts and
connecting rods. We are glad to report, also, that Pontiac prices
are still just above the lowest – and that the car's
traditional economy is still the same. Again in 1942, any buyer of
a new motor car can afford a Pontiac.
Rapid-Fire Production of Rapid-Fire Cannon!
Charged with building a large number of automatic anti-aircraft cannon for the U. S. Navy, Pontiac is now turning out these complicated weapons with production-line speed and efficiency. This important assignment we regard as our first responsibility.
W związku z przystąpieniem USA do wojny, 10 lutego przestawiono produkcję na potrzeby wojska.
