"Wo. would bo less than human If
wo did not experience a great deal of
satisfaction In this nchloement,"
says Mr. I.eland. "flut ours Is rather
the calm satisfaction of the man who
sees the correctness of his deep-seated
convictions dciiuiustintcd to oth
ers, than the- undue elation of him
who achieves tho unexpected.
"Tho ordinary lew Is that n csr
which wins an cndurntico contest is
the best car for every-day use. Our
conviction Is precisely the opposite.
We (Irmly believe thnl thu manufac
turer who builds tho best car he pos
sibly can build for ev cry-day use, ne
cessarily builds Into It tho qualities
which make for endurance even If it
wcro built, ns every Cadillac Is bull',
without the thought of triumphing In
a 24-hour contest.
"In short, the victory of tho Cadil
lac at I8 Angoles was simply n in
sult incidental to tho principles of
standardization which hac ulwny.?
Inspired the Cadillac Company. It
inado tho greatest mileage Just as It
won the Dewar tiphy; not because
It was especially built for these spe
cial achievements, but because It Is
moro thoroughly standarlwM than

The Advantages of the
Six Cylinder Locomobile
The Locomobile Shaft Drive
Six, without changing gears, iuiis
as slowly as a walk, or at a rate
of over 6(J miles an hour, nnd
climb:, hills .splendidly yet shows
an efficiency of 12 miles to a gal
lon of fuel. It has done this un
der ordinary favorable conditions
on the roads of Southern Califor
nia with full passenger load. In
hill-climbing and other point;, of
performance it it the best car that
we ever made. A recital of the
features of this model will make
it clear why this is so.
The Six Cylinder Motor de
velops over 70 Hort.c-1'ower on
the test stand. The motor base
is bronze. There are cylinders
specially designed for this model,
large valves, quiet valve lifters,
high tension dual ignition, and a
new carburetor that cuts down
fuel consumption and provides
great power at the same time.
The new oiling system is self
contained oil is pumped to the
bearings in a constant stream.
The Carbureter referred to Is new
Locomobile design and construction.
It provides tho snap and power of n
multlplo Jet duvlco with tho simpli
city, economy, and ease of starting
of a single Jot, Heat for vuporlia
tlon Is provldod by both hot wator
and hot air. The hot air from tho
exhaust gives a good mixture Immo
idtutely nt blurting. The combination
of hot wutor and hot air gives a more
perfect mixture than could be ob
tained with either system ulone and
enables low gravity gasoline to bo
cp nun mod with sutlsfuctloa. Tho
quality of the mixture can bo varied
by tho oporutor.
The Clutch on tho Locomobile Six
operates without slipping or Jerking.
It Is a multiple disc, the type most
sultsblo for a large car. It Is simple,
reliable and requites very llttlo at
tention for lubrication. It may bo
removed and replaced as a unit with
out dhttutblng un 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.
If 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.
fl 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.
