|Quiet Is The Sound Of A Well-Made
This is the Thiokol Vibration Laboratory in Utah, here
our giant vibrators give missile components the shaking
of their lives.
This week Ford is using the same vibrators
to give the '73 Ford Galaxie 500 over a million bumps
and shakes. Ford is out to prove a point.
Quiet is the
sound of a well made car.
Before the shake test we took
sound readings and got a very quiet 65 decibels, but
will this Ford Galaxie 500 be as quiet after a million
bumps, shakes and deep vibrations, most of them so fast
we had to remove the gas tank and cool the shocks to
keep them from overheating?
Now on the same highway
at the same speed and conditions, not one decibel point
noisier. In Ford Galaxie 500, "Quiet is the sound
of a well-made car". See it at your Ford dealers
