1958 Ford Release
|What Makes a New Car New
Good evening, I'm Hugh Downs. The occasion here tonight
is the introduction of the 1958 Ford's. I'm glad you
could join us because were about to show you just what
exactly makes a new car new - and I mean really new,
in all the things that count.
And now, the car that
was proved and approved all around the world, the 1958
Ford's. Ford for '58, new in every way, new styling,
new power, new performance, new handling, new comfort,
new ride. There's nothing newer in the world.
again Ford sets the pace with the newest look in automotive
design. Every detail is new, beautifully combining fashion
and function. metal sculptured into rich beauty, this
is true high style, this is bold new style. Notice the
strikingly original design of the new sculptured rear
deck. The new horizontally mounted safety twin tail
lights, and the gracefully high-canted tail fins.
is the new Ford look that brought home the bravo's from
Paris to Saigon. And now, the latest version of America's
all time favorite convertible, the new 1958 Ford Sunliner.
It's hot, it's handsome, its a honey to handle. Further
proof that Ford makes all the difference in the world.
Under that hood is Ford's new Interceptor V8 engine
with precision fuel induction, the greatest V8 advance
in 25 years.
Every nut, bolt, washer is new. A completely
new engine delivering up to 300 horse power, greater
power from less gas. Team it with Ford's new Crusie-A-Matic
drive and you'll get gas savings up to 15% as well as
brilliant new responsiveness. And every '58 Ford has
new "magic-circle" steering that makes turning
as easy as pointing. Here's the '58 Ford Country Squire,
one of six new Ford Station Wagon's.

Wagon's from Fairlane and Fairlane 500 models it's available

Ford Air suspension. It rides you smooth and level regardeless
of load or road conditions. In styling, in performance,
