Popularity Backed by Evidence
We have delivered over 15,000 Overlands in the past five
months. This is double the business of any other manufacturer
producing a similar car. We could have delivered many more
had we been able to produce them.
The Overland is outselling its competitors merely because it
outclasses them in every single particular. Naturally most peopla
buy where they get the most car for the least money.
The greatest difference in popular priced cars is the difference
in price. And this difference is due to the difference in factory and
We do not only claim to be more conscientious builders, but
we are more economical. It is merely the Overland method a 95
per cent, efficient factory system making 40,000 cars yearly.
The Overland costs 3056 less than any other similar car made.
In ten years the world's automobile production increased
8,000 per cent.
But in six years Overland sales have increased nearly 10,000
per cent. This phenomenal popularity is the greatest proof in the
world that in the Overland you get more car for less money than any
other manufacturer can give.
For example study the specifications given below.
The 1913 sales of Overland cars are already double those
of any other manufacturer producing a similar car. And still we are
unable to supply the demand. We have beaten our record for the
corresponding months last year by over 300 per cent
If we can beat all the others in sales, sorely we must in value.
Our sales department records show that to date 65 per cent,
of all Overland, cars have been bought by farmers. Residents of the
rural districts have, therefore, either bought or contracted for"
Remember that the farmer is accustomed to buying machin
ery; he knows when a car is right. He has found the Overland
a powerful, sturdy and dependablecar, and what is more he realjzes
that the purchase of an Overland gives him mora car forfcuinoney.
Think that over.
There is over $3,000,000.00 worth of the most modern auto
matic machinery in the Overland factories. Such equipment as this
makes it possible for us to make the average $1200 car for $985. We
have one department which does nothing but take out and sell
machines replaced by more improved ones. Let this simple arith
metic sink in: The installation of new machinery costing $100,000
means $20 per car to a maker of 5000 cars; to us it means but $2L50.
Think that over and you will realize why the car, described
below, is possible.
The Overland factories possess the largest drop forge plant
in connection with the industry. This means that we depend on no
outside source for our drop forgings.
When a certain construction needs a drop forging we can go
ahead and make it at minimum cost. Parts which cost others $9
each, we make for $3.
Thus you can see why we can do what others cannot do.
The value described below is the result.
To make enough Overlands to supply the present demand,'
8,000 skilled mechanics are working night and day, in our great
plants which cover over 94 acres. '
And this enormous Overland business of 40,000 cars grew,
from an output of but 400 cars in 1908.
Would our growth ha e been the biggest if our value was not
