Although about 40 per cent o f all passenger automobiles now in use are prewar models, the change is not expected to have any appreciable effect on the general credit situation. Greater risk is involved in financing older model cars and as a result terms actually made available by sellers and lenders have in general been more stringent than those required under Regulation W.
