The Advantages of the
Six Cylinder Locomobile

of over' 60 mil" an hour, anil

an efficiency of 1 2 miles to a gil
Ion of fuel. It ha done this tin
der ordinary favorable conditions
on the roads of Southern Califor
nia with full p.vsencr load. In
liill-cliinliiui; and other point;, of
performance it is the best ear that
we ever made. A recital of the
features of this model will make
it clear why this is ho.
The Six Cylinder Motor de
velop? over 70 llorse-I'ower on
the test stand. The motor base
is bronze. There arc cylinders
specially designed for this model,
larc valves, quiet valve lifters,
Iiiejli tcn.sion dual ignition, and a
new carburetor that cuts down
fuel consumption and provides
reat power at the .same time.
The new oiling system is self
contained oil is pumped to the
bearings in a constant sticnm.

It provides tho snap and power of a
iiitiltlplu Jet ilevtco with the simpli
city, economy, and ease ot stnrtlng
of a single Jet. Ileal fur vnporltn

The C'lutrli on the Locomobile Six
operntea without slipping or Jerking.
It Ih a multiple disc, the typo most
suitable for a large ear. It Is simple,
reliable and requires very lit t to tit
teution for lubrlrntlon. It tuny bo
lemoved niul leplnred as u unit with
out disturbing an thing else.
THIS model possesses, in the .highest degree, those important
advantages that are peculiar to the Six Cylinder type. It runs
at a foot pace, and by the mere pressure of a pedal climbs
hills or accelerates to express train speed." The motor operates
smoothly at all speeds.
tfl In addition, and very important, The Locomobile Six is notably
ECONOMICAL in the use of tires, the consumption of fuel and the
time needed for upKeep.
J As to the fundamental virtues of Safety and Reliability, it is a
typical Locomobile a car of the highest quality of material,
workmanship and inspection. It is a thoroughly tested and high
ly developed model.
The Locomobile Six is made and distributed by an experienced
organization whose equal aim is to build the finest cars possible
and to render such attentive service to owners that each Locomo
bile will give that complete and permanent satisfaction for which
it was built.

The Transmission is another
feature. The case is bronze, in
suring permanent alignment of
gears, shafts and bearings. Four
speeds and reverse selectively
operated. It gives no trouble
and can be driven several thou
sand miles without adding any
more grease lo the case.
The Rear Construction con
tains no brazing. Alloy steel rear
axle tubes. The elliptic roar
springs are free to act no driving
through the .springs. Universal
joints arc in metal housing will
run 5000 miles or more without
repacking with grc.T-c.
The Appearance is attractive
low lines. The body is grace
ful and roomy, of the four-door
type, and seats seven. The bon
net is short, obviating the clumsy
appearance and waste room of
numerous other sics. The run
ning boards arc clean on both
sides. Tires are carried at the
rear instead of on the running
board, thus improving the ap
pearance of the car and weight
ing the rear spring equally.
Tires are largo In sire nnd not
overloaded, thus itu not wear out be
fore their time. Careful design nnd
construction of tho differential gear
eliminates any binding or cramping
when the car Is turning n rtirnir-.i
condition that Inrtenses tho Ufa (it
the rear tires very considerably.

The Cadillac Motor Car Company Is

That was 1uoio Mian six years ago.
Mr. Hall says ho recently ramo

should euro lo buy, nnd was told
that ho could havo It for Just what
ho sold It for; Jiamcly, $400, in t-plte
