Seven Passenger Ford V-8 Sedan Offered by New Era Motors

Download PDF for this date

A luxurious, custom built seven passenger body mounted on the 1935 Ford V-8 chassis, extended to 125½-inch wheelbase, is the notable contribution of the New Era Motors Corporation of New York to the season’s new motor car offerings.

This new car, distinguished by its handsome, custom built Le Baron body and interior luxury and roominess, incorporates all the features of the new 1935 Ford V-8 chassis, including “Center Poise” riding and “extended springbase,” and adds to these a body and spring construction designed to accommodate seven passengers with room to spare. The rear compartment is fitted with two forward facing auxiliary seats of the Pullman type, and these seats are set together closely enough to seat three passengers in comfort and without crowding. A wide front seat with ample elbow and leg room for three people is provided, so that the car has a comfortable capacity of nine passengers.

The Le Baron body is mounted on Ford type transverse springs of special design and construction to carry the extra weight and length of the body. The new product also embodies the Ford principle of Torque-tube Drive; power being applied through radius rods which relieve the springs of all driving strain.

The upholstery, hardware, trim, and appointments of the new car are all of the type and quality found in the 1935 Ford V-8 De Luxe models, and include extra accessories supplied at no additional cost. Safety glass throughout is standard equipment.

The New Era seven passenger Ford V-8 is distributed through Ford Dealers exclusively, and will be on exhibition at various automobile shows throughout the country, as well as at various Ford Branches.
