$50 Re my Magneto
This car, at this price, smashe? all previous records. It even
totally eclipses the 1912 value;, which a year ago baffled the
world. 40,000 Overlands will be made in 1913. This enor
mous jump in production makes possible this new car at this
rew price. As the production goes up .prices come down, as
has been shown in each preceding year.
In this age of rapid progress it is sometimes difficult to
grasp the full significance of an important, progressive manu
facturing step, such as this car exemplies. But when you
sum up the extraordinary, cold dollar value which this car
offers, as compared to any and all competing motor car val
ues, the giant economical manufacturing strength of the huge
Overland plants is realized and recognized . It only proves
the ability of this most powerful and efficient automobile factory.
Here we can but call your attention to the bare facts. This
is the car a big, powerful, beautiful .spacious, comfortable,
self -starting, 30 horsepower, five-passenger touring car
fully equipped all ready for night or day, rain or shine, ser
vice. Made of the best materials on the market, by the most
skilled men known to the trade and in the most efficient auto
mobile shops in America. And the price is but $985.
We can make the positive statement, without any kind of a
condition, that this is the automobile industry's record value.
This car can now be seen in our salesrooms,
ing to give you your demonstration.
