During the first week of January , Mr. Ford and members of the Product Planning Committee are scheduled to visit the Advanced Styling Studio.
As acting chief of the studio, I am expected to present the case for the Advanced Styling Studio. I am sending you for your inspection a transcript of what I plan to say. At this time I would deeply appreciate any criticism or suggestions. After welcoming the Product Planning Committee I shall take them through a planned tour of the exhibits and this is what I will say.
studio. The second chart here clearly shows that designer “X” has increased his experience considerably in the three months he has been with us.
Here we have the Mikado. This one I consider very successful and it is quite obvious that the usual roof treatment could have only been arrived at because its very name suggested a pagoda-like influence that could never have been suggested any other way.
The Matador presents another successful venture in its design. One might say that the reds and the swept back fins might have been inspired by the thrust of the bandalleros of Manolette, the greatest of all bullfighters.
Similar descriptions will follow on cars such as the Aurora Borealis, the Sahara, the Pygalle, the Monte Carlo, the Congo, and the Texan. The results of this venture in our opinion furnish food for thought for management in the planning of interest in future show cars, much as new colors and names.
I thank you.
