American Pullman opts for new type of intercom system

Posted on April 1, 1983 by LCT Staff

A hands-free intercom system, where the chauffeur does not have to take his hand from the steering wheel to speak to the passenger, is now available in limousines pro­duced by American Pullman Coachbuilders, based in Brooklyn, New York.

“When the passenger applies the intercom to speak to the chauffeur, the intercom system automatically shuts down the sound of the radio, television or tape player,” said Ken Boyer, national sales manager for the firm.

“We are constantly upgrading the product,” said Boyer. “We are al­ways fine tuning the product so that it will serve what I feel are the five major purposes of a quality-built limousine geared toward both the rental and private sectors of the limousine market. They are safety, viability, ease of service, practical application in the use of the vehicle and residual value.

“We have also developed what we call a Total Sound Package. It is an extra convenience type of option that allows the television sound to run through the radio speakers.”

Other important features of American Pullman limousines, ac­cording to the company, include maximum driver space to allow full use of original seat equipment for driver comfort; double valve air shock suspension to smooth out rough rides; and an auxiliary radiator cooling fan for stop-and-go city traffic.
