The Things About a
Maxwell You Remember
1. It runs endless mileage.
2. It makes a dollar's worth of gas
travel a mighty distance.
3. It shies at the repair shop.
4. Its tires seem to last forever.
5. Its upkeep never makes you poor.
6. It never wobbles or creaks in its old age.
7. If you keep two or three other cars
you'll drive your Maxwell twice as
often as any of the others.
8. It is nevcr thirsty for oil.
9. Your neighbor and your banker re
spect your motor car judgment.
10. When yoq part with it, it's like
parting with a life-long friend.
All ten of which are due to the 300,000-all-alike
idea conceived at the time the Maxwell was
originated, 5 years ago. The policy of
doing one thing and doing it well
over a ppriod of years has no better ex
ample in business today than the prod
uct of the/Maxwell Motor Company.
It's the kind of car you never forget.
