This car has all tho 1912 Improve

tiystem, which Is a vast Improvement
over tho 1911 models. Tho Hosch sys

ns the barrel of tlio coll Is 'very much
Hirvallcr and' there are not as many
wires uttiichod to It as previously.
Tho old system was much more com

boon to the nutomublto repairmen.
This car Is the tnnpplest looking car
of Its clnss thnt lias ever been liu-l

a bloc type motor of n foreign design, ,

ages of this typo of motor1 is tho,
small number of parts and tho onset
with which the motor may bo dls-as-i
scmblcd from tho cnr. Tho water

A person uufani'llar with this typu,
of motor would expect that If one,

tall nn enormous expense to' lcplncoj
the name, hut the truth of tho mattprj
Is thnt tho cracks arc far less llablo.
to occur nnd the cost of a whole now!
casting is very little more than tho!
cod of one separate cylinder of thoj

OR 1 91 2 The Locomobile will set a new standard of Luxury in motor
Our success in the past resulted from our continued efforts to make the
Locomobile the best built car in America.
Having attained this mechanical superiority, our present aim is to make
the Locomobile the most luxurious American Car Quiet, Comfortable, Perfect in
The Six Cylinder Locomobile, by virtue of its excellent performances in 1911, has
established a new standard in Six Cylinder construction. Realizing the demand on
the part of the present day motorist for increased comfort in nutornobiling, we have
made careful study and investigation for the purpose of making this Car the last
word in Luxury.
The improvements that we haye made in this direction produce Ease and Comfort
hitherto unknown in motoring. As an instance, the rear seat cushions and high
backs in our Six Cylinder Touring Car are each provided with upholstering ten
inches deep as soft and restful as the easiest library chair. Passengers are seated
low in the car, which produces a feeling of security.
Our Five Passenger Six Cylinder Torpedo is the most perfect combination of
Luxury and Style yet offered in this popular type of body. The passengers are
carried on the rear seat, which has upholstering ten inches thick, cushion and back.
We also make a. Four Passenger Torpedo upholstered in the same luxurious manner.
The combination of advantages offered only in the Locomobile Shaft Drive Six
makes it t
A Perfect Machine a Perfect Vehicle.
The Six Cylinder Type in its highest development. l '
The "30" Locomobile, Four Cylinders. ' This reliable and convenient five passenger shaft drive

Features of . the Six
Motor Design Tho motor Is so designed and built that with
n cylinder bore of 4', 4 Inches 70 horsepower is obtained on test.
This represents tho utmost power obtainable from this slzo of '
cylinder without affecting reliability. Cylinders are designed
specially for tlio Six and have large valves and quiet valve

OTceptlon, Is the HgbteBt snven-passenger, slx-cj Under cnr. Wn
have attained this progress and refinement by seven years'
study nnd development of the llnest alloy steels. Ono brnko
horsepower Is provided for every llfty-Boven pounds of wulglt.
Fuel Economy Tho Locomobile Six has frequently ,, boon
driven twelve miles on n gallon of fuel. 'This Is well In nrivnncp
of ordinary slx-cj Under performance. A customer writes that
ho droo his Locomobile Six over tho mountains from Los
Angeles to Santa Barbara with seven passcngors, averaging
eleven miles. to a gallon of fuel. Another customer writes that
ho drovb his Six Torpedo over fourteen miles on a gallon of
fuel, Such economy Is duo to our special carburetor design
nnd to modcrato weight.
Tiro Kronnmy Ordinarily n poiwrfiil six Isnliuiilen through

nnrei you rtoulil not think they luul been driven ln(IO niltrx."
The foiogolng report Is on ono of tho first i Sixes delivered.
I.ocomobllo tiro economy Is duo to modcrato weight and selen
tlflc balance of weight! also to tho free action of the differen
tial when turning a corner, thus preventing any grinding action
on tho rubber. Tho Locomobile differential noer binds under
nny conditions of road operation.
Strength of Constiiietioii Dronzo Instead of aluminum is'
used for the motor base nnd gear box. It Is three, times as
strong as tho aluminum ordinarily used for the purpose on
other cars. Tho axles and steering gear are very strong and
safe. The car throughout Is built from carefully designed
parts mndo In the Locomobllo factory from mateilal specially
selected for each part. The Locomobile has alnas been known
for Its safety and strength.
Hiding Qualities The Locomnbllo Six has woudorf uV riding
qualities perfect comfort and Mendlm-M. No swerving from
sldo to side when traveling at speed. Tho superb riding quali
ties of our Blx aro duo largely to tho fact that power does not
pass through tho springs, Thus they aro free to act. Hoar
springs cannot glvo maxlmunvroinfort when they act as dl
