WASHINGTON Are the ar rogant chariots coming back Its perhaps too early to say butstraws in the wind are be ing watched For example one of four new Detroit models be ing introduced at the Interna tional Automobile Show in New York is a high performance personal prestige car with a glass fiber body The price of this vehicle produced by Stude bakerPackard will be above higher than other Stude baker models And Ford is dis playing a new foreigntype sports car the Cougar 406 at the New York show For the reverse side of the coin Ford has announced thai after long and serious consid eration it was abandoning its plans to make this year a new small small car roughly the size of a Volkswagen Fords foreign West Germanj and might make the car for the foreign market Similarly General Motors an nounced that its West German subsidiary Adam Opel A G would make a small car the Kadett The Ford decision was the re sult of a sag in imports of econ omy cars Actually although neither Ford nor G M is talk ing about it officially both com panies have neatly hedged their bets They are producing small cars which will be able to compete within the European Common Market in price and perform ance with small European cars They are giving up for the time being any plans to make small er cars in this country seeing or thinking they see a trend away from the compacts But they remain in a position to import their foreign jobs if theyre wrong about the trend What Americans want ac cording to a Ford vice presi dent mentioned is economical luxury If he is right this means a step back in the di rection of fins and chrome This would be a real reversal in many markets throughout the nation compact had come to represent as much as 50 per cents of sales The trend is still not clear G Ms Buick division recently resumed importing Opels after a lapse of more than a year But early reports on 1963 models indicate a general jazzing up of design and accessories even in the compacts Thus the Dodge Lancer will be length encd and lifted from the straight compact field into competition with the Ford Fairlane Indeed most Dodge cars will be larger than this years models Chevrolet noting that 70 per cent of Corcairs being sold to day are the sporty Monza models is said to be adding new sports car features Buick and Chrysler are working on new personal cars along the lines of the Ford Thundcrbird and Chevrolet is redesigning the Corvette The Americans who want really small cars it would ap pear will have to buy imports Speaking of small small cars it is interesting to note that So viet Russia
