l)ETROIT, Jan. 11--With
indications that the "car-at-any-
price" market rapidly is drying
up, the automobile industry's
general sales chiefs are checking
and re-checking their accumula-
tion of unfilled orders.
Authoritative estimates of un-
filled orders for new passenger
cars place the total at an excess
of 5,500,000; that's more than the
industry assembly lines can turn
out at capacity operations this
year and much has been made of
that fact in all attempts to fore-
cast the new car market for 1947.
What the sales chiefs do not
know and cannot find out is ex-
actly how many of the orders on
hand represent duplications. The
number is large and presents a
problem to the merchandising
heads of the industry in any at-
tempt to accurately appraise the
actual market for new cars.
Duplicate Orders
Thus far, according to many
industry experts, cancellation of
duplicate orders has not been on
a large scale. The duplicate or-
ders, as a matter of fact, have
been one major source of supply
to used car dealers offering new
or almost-new 1946 models at
premium prices.
Some of the many new models
in used car lots came from indi-
viduals who never intended to
retain them but bought them sole-
ly to turn over to the used car
dealers; still others with com-
paratively little mileage on their
speedometers were purchased by
the car lot operators frctn persons
who could not resist the tempting
prices offered.
Used Cars
The manufacturing division of
the industry, of course, has no

direct dealings with the used car
merchant as such. At the same
time the new car merchandiser
also has an interest in the demand
for used automobiles. To avoid
freezing a lot of capital he has
to cash in with a minimum of
delay on vehicles accepted as
trade-ins.
Surveys of 1946 car merchan-
dising show that a trade-in was
involved in a large part of the
new car sales; in many instances
the new car buyer with a trade-
in was able to get delivery much
more quickly that the individual
without one.

wait your selection.
Why not solve that gift prob-

Yet the used car market is still
far from adequately stocked; the
number of cars reaching the lots
as a result of trade-ins on new
vehicles -like new car produc-
tion and sales -has been only a
small part of the normal volume.
Whatever lag may have developed
in used car demand has been due
to the higher prices at which the
vehicles are held.
Whether a buyers' market for
new cars will develop this sum-
mer still is problematical, although
all the sales chiefs in their meet-
ings with dealers keep pounding
away at the assertion "it will
come sooner than you think."
