Most of these experts remarked about the extraordinary quiet ness and smoothness of the Ford ride. An automotive writer, in Mechanix Illustrated, said, “If there is a quieter car made in this country, I haven’t driven it.” Quiet Means Quality . . . Since quiet is a traditional measure of car quality, Ford engineers designed the ’65 Ford for maxi mum quietness. To illustrate New Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud 111 during series of tests. this quality achievement, Ford chose to make a documented test against the world’s finest luxury car—Rolls-Royce. Bolt, Beranek and Newman, Inc., world’s leading acoustic consultants to government and industry, conducted the tests under supervision of the au thoritative United States Auto Club.

The official test report reads, in part: “At all moving speeds, on both courses, the Fords were quieter than the Rolls-Royces.” The Difference . . . The sound level difference, to be sure, is small—but it is there. At 60 miles an hour, Ford was actu ally 2.8 decibels* quieter than Rolls-Royce. At 40, Ford was 5.5 decibels* quieter. At 20, Ford was 4.9 decibels* quieter. However small these advan tages over Rolls-Royce may be, they are significant evidence of quality—important to anyone buying a car in Ford’s class.
