' nh: ''Perhaps tho most pleasing tea-
turn of my trip has been tho excel
lent reputation which tho public
ha o given the Hudson car. beiauso
everywhero I go they say It Is tho
bert looking and tho best built car
for the money. This sort of reputn
Ulon Is very hard to get nnd harder
still to keep, but one thing you can
feel assured of and that Is, having
:cg u red this reputation we are going
'to sparo no expense, hrnlns or en
ergy In maintaining It. All motor
cars on tho Coast got about titty
per cent, moro uso In the year than
In any other section of tho country,
consequently this reputation for sor
vlco Is harder to get out hero, and
It Is Intensely pleasing to find tho
Hudson car so well regarded."
Mr. Chapln expects to return to
Detroit In about three, weeks. At
tho time tho building of tho now fac

Five Times Last Year's Call for
The demand for OVerlands is five tmies that of last year.
And we are making five times as many. Y'et the Over
land last yeaf was one of the big-selling cars. A car which
so wins its way against today's competition, must, as yo,u
know, be a remarkable car.
You Owe This to Yourself
This is no ordinary car this Overland. It should not be coniidred
as merely one of the many.
Remember that 27 months ago the car was. entirely unknown, and it
had scores of well-established competitors. Today there are. four factories.,
employing- 4,000 men, turning out 140 Overlands daily to meet the over
whelming demand. And a fifth factory is being equipped.
This season's cdvance orders from dealers called for $21,000,000
worth of Overland cars. And this demand was created without any ad
vertising solely by the cars themselves.
We are turning out five times oar output of one year ago. Yet, at
this writing March 1 we are 1,700 cars behind on orders for immedi
You owe to yourself a knowledge of this car. It has won over others
on sheer merit alone. And the demand is increasing several times as
fart as for the best other car that(w? ,know.
The facts which are winning these legions of buyers are bound to
win you when you know them. It is worth a slight wait if it is nrces
sary to get this superior tar, Every Overland dealer has at least cars
to show. You can see them and trv them. And most pf our dealers who
have ordered ahead can deliver with reasonable promptness. We are eo
ing to supply the demand,
Two Careful Customers
There are two users of Overlands whose requirements are extreme
ly revere, For 18 montljj the Government has used Overland can in its
mail service. The cars must run 75 miles a day, winter and summer,
witho I missing a trip. A yxm novice must be able to care for them
wthoul breakdowns delays or trouble. And the car's must cost less than
horses, compared with the service performed. For a year and a half the
Overland has splendidly mt these 'requirements.
Tho J. I. Case Thrpshlnb Machine Co.'suptilies Overlands to its coun
try salesmen. These cars .must trayej any road in any weatherv They
must always keep going without exnert aitention, and must show a low
cost of npkecn. That concern has s sleeked the Overland ns best suited
to these requirements.
Nine buyers in, en seek that sort of car. They seek a car as faith
ful as a horse, as economical as a horse, and as easy as a horse to drive
and to care for. They want a, trouble-proo car which no conditions will
fare, and a car which, gives most for the money. If you comiarc cars as
did these careful buyers you will choose the car they chose.
Some Important Reasons
We will leave, to our catalog the technical details, But let us point
out the main reasons why the Overland, where known, has so captured
The, car was designed by 'a mechanical genius, after most other cars
had been fully, developed. He 'had for ty' hasis all the best ideas that
the best engineers had worked out. He compared the creations of a
hundred designers by the actual results in nse. Ahd he chost for every
part of his car the device that had n roved itself best.
Then he developed a wonderful engine powerful, simple, all-cn-during.
He raae the lubricatipn automatic. Ho got rid of the complex
' .Then he, studied, simplicity.. He knew that the best way to minimize
trouble was to reduce Vxe number, of part's. He invented one part to take
the place of a number wherever this could be done. A single part which
he invented did away with 47. The next step was to solve the question
of ease in operation.
The Pedal Control
Three of the Overland models operate by pedal control. Tush n
pedal to ;go ahead and backward tq reverse. Push another pedal for
ward to get on high speed. The hands have nothing to do but steer. As
a result, a child can master the car in ten minutes. A novice can run it
the Arst time he takes the wheel.
The Willys-Overland Co., Toledo, Ohio
Vqh liamm-Young Co,, Ltd., Sole Agents
The Overland is almost troubls-proof. Give it oil and water and it
will always keep going. Wp have run one of, these" cars for 7,000 miles,
night and day, without stopping the engine. Many a man has run an
Overland from 7,000 to 10,000 miles without even cleaning a spark
plug. And the car has been run as far as 28 miles on one gallon of
;aioline. That is why Overland owners sell these tars to others. Our
whole marvelous growth has been duco that fact.
Our Costly Machinery
About $3,000,000 has been invested in plants and machinery for pro
ducing the. Overland car. The parts are , all made by automatio ma
chines, so that error or variation is out of the question. Accuracy is
secured to the ten-thousandth part of an inch. The system is the same as
that employed in watch-making. As a result, Overland parts arc all in
terchangeable. Eycry part after each operation is subjected to careful inspection.
There are more than 10,000 of thesj inspections of the various parts of
each car. Then every chasis, befpre the body is aflded, is given a thorough
test on the road. As a result, every Overland car goes out in perfect
confltion- . -..C.tfaJJjttJ
The Minimized Cost
Our enormous production and labor-saving machinery enable us to
make cars for much less than others. This 'saving 'alone would givo us
a veryjfajir profit. In the past year alone, through multiplied output and
new machinery, wc have put the cost 20 per cent. ,
TJiiq voir we arc selling a 20 horsepower Overland, with a 102-inch
wheel base, for ?1000. No other car of equal power and sire is sold
r.earlv tp low,
., e 4eU ,a, 4 fcwwpower Overland, with a 112-inch wheel base, for
S1.250. For $1,500 we are selling a car with all the power and spied
all the, style and anpe&ra'ncc that any man can want. All prices include
five lamps and magneto.
With a smaller outnut and le?j modern machinery it is out of the
question' for any maker to give vhat th.e Overland gives for the money.
