If You Were an E
What Car Would You Buy?
The time has passed when automobiles can be sold to you on
their appearances or claims. This is a day when you and every
purchaser must be shown what the car for which you pay your
money will actually perform; what it will do. Beware of an
automobile salesman who attempts to beguile you with a
pleasing story. Tell him to show the goods and prove to you
that his cars are worth the money. Find out whether his car
is a real car or only an assembled automobile built to sell.
You have a right to' your money's worth, but it is up to you
to see that you get it. Deeper than all appearances, there
are a few expert tests wliich ought to be applied to every car.
Who makes the car? Is it an assembled car or made from top
to bottom by one manufacturer? What kind of a guarantee
is on it? Does the manufacturer respect his own product
with a real guarantee, or does he want you to take the chance?
What do parts cost you and how conveniently can you get
them? How many cars of this make are in service and how
many are giving satisfaction? Questions like these go deep into
the heart of the case, and if you put them rigorously upon
any car you will find out with a certainty whether or not that
car is Worth its price.
We are selling Studebaker E-M-F "30" and Flanders "20"
cars because we know that, dollar for dollar, their equal is not
sold in the market today. The records of many thousands of
cars in all kinds of service have convinced us absolutely.
Studebaker E-M-F "30" and Flanders "20" cars are built to
run, and because they run they sell. If we cannot prove to
you under the most searching test that Studebaker cars are
absolutely the best automobile values in the market, we do
not want your business; but we can prove it, and your
neighbors who drive these cars will tell you the same thing.
Be an expert when it comes to buying a car. You can, by
getting from us some further ideas on real tests of an
automobile. Clip the attached coupon and send it to
us now because we have something new to tell you
which you ought to know, whatever car you have
