From 400 cars in 1908 to 40,000 cars in 1913
UNDER the present ownership and management ?the Overland has
been before the public just six years. These have been the most
trying and bitter years of the industry. The last six years have
given birth, growth and expansion to the modern automobile as
you see it today, and have determined which cars were to survive the fierce
struggle and become permanently established.
During this historical constructive period, the Overland has pro?
gressed more rapidly than any other car of its type made. This is
important and significant.
In six years we have jumped from 400 cars a year to 40,000 cars a
year. This is an increase of nearly 10,000 per cent. This growth is greater
than that of any other single concern in the industry. This growth is
greater than the ?growth of the combined factories of the world. In ten
years the entire industry has shown an increase of 8000 per cent. The
United State? alone ?hows an increase of 5270 per cent; Germany an in?
crease of 1281 per cent; Italy an increase of 683 per cent; United Kingdom
an increase of 321 per cent; France an increase of 160 per cent. But our
individual increase in six short years has been nearly 10,000 per cent.
In round numbers we made 400 cars hi 1908; 4,000 in 1909; 15,000 in
1910; 15,000 in 1911; 25,000 in 1912; and we will make 40,000 cars in 1913.
The grand total is almost 100,000 cars, which translated into American
money means that the American people have had faith enough to invest
over ?100,000,000.00 of their money in this car.
* Ti. Overtad. b; virtue of _? unn-eal act of Implicit confidence,
warm appreciation, and exceptional r?cognition, is today the most promi?
nent, permanent, and popular car of its type produced.
We give these amazing figures to prove the indisputable evidence of
our production skill, strength, and economical manufacturing ability. We
have done what others could have done?if they had possessed the foresight
to realize an opportunity. There are those who are now manufacturing
cars, that started five or ten years before we did. They had our oppor?
tunity?but failed utterly. Six years ago we knew the secret of automobile
success was quantity production. For increased production in any line of
business is bound to decrease the selling price.
Big production, growing each year has made it possible for us to in?
crease our car value, and in consequence decrease our retail selling price
which accounts for and explains our phenomenal progress. By sheer
force of huge production, which was. our original conception of capturing
the automobile markets of the world, we were able to give each succeed?
ing year more actual car for less actual money than any one else in the
business. This big, broad manufacturing policy resulted in our rapid and
Take our present $985 car as a specific case. This car upset the
entire industry. When announced abroad the trade stubbornly refused to
believe such a car?at such a price?was possible. Jealous European com?
petitors made every possible endeavor to pull it apart in a frantic effort to
pick a flaw. But not one could be found, and the result is?-we have more
European orders alone than we will be able to fill. Of the demand for mis
car in America we need hardly say much, except to mention the fact that
we are over 3,000 oars behind immediate orders, and have been for over
If you are in the market tor a car see this Model 69 Overland? If
you will compare it with others you will be convinced, you will save con?
?durable money. It is a self starting, thirty horse-power, five passenger
touring car, magnificently finished, modemly appointed, and completely
