Maxwell "40" touring car, as being a
successor to the- famous oilddeiv-wln-nlng

which make their first appearance thla

particularly interesting because they
show how thoroughly motor car de

distinct types of roadsters.

In appearance to appeal strongly to
those who want high powered touring
roadsters with liberal and convenient

When, a motor, overheats it Is well to

first thing that naturally presents It

composed of the radiator and, connec

the water jacketing. Then there Is -the

tended ''to-run at a-certain' .speed to

radiator to cool them. If the belt is
not at the proper tension, so as to
eliminate aa much lost motion aa poa-atble.-ttbetconaequent

fan to imake fewer revelations, and
hence i become leas efficient. 'This lack

1913'i Biggest Value in Three Models
Beauty, luxury and comfort have been developed
to the utmost In the handsome Maxwell "40."
Every refinement, every detail, is the very latest..
Nothing that would make the Maxwell "40" better'
has been spared or omitted.
The new 1913 Maxwell is the finest car we have
ever built. It is larger, more powerful, finer n
every way. But it remains characteristically a
Maxwell. That is, it retains the mechanical features
responsible for the extraordinary Maxwell dura
bility, endurance, economy of operation andupkeep.
The "forty" is made in two body styles the
touring car $1675 and roadster $1625.
We offer also the "thirty" touring car $1145 and
the "thirty" roadster $1110. Our "thirty" made
a great hit last year and we were unable to build
enough to supply the demand for it. It is improved
and enlarged as the leader has been and we are
confident will retain its supremacy in its' class.
In the new Maxwell "twenty-two" we have the
spectacular automobilevaluefor 1913. At$785,fullv
equipped, including self-starter, the "twenty-two
will make an instantaneous hit. If you are inter
