Most 'Beautiful Car in/lmerica
The Only Practical Car
for Winter Driving
1 lircc weeks ago we announced anew l*aij;e power plant—“a motor that was developed
by the war.” You will probably remember that advertisement. The echoes are
still reverberating through motordom.
You may recall, for instance, that we said, “The old orthodox gasoline motor is dead —
deader than yesterday’s newspaper.” Well—we meant just that. The old type
of motor is (lead. A newer type —a finer ype —a more efficient type has been
evolved to take its place. And that type is the Paige.*
Perhaps we can best express the strength of our conviction by one more sweeping
statement. Here it is: The new I\iige power plant ts the only practical internal
combustion engine fur W inter driving in a Motor Car.
If this statement is true —and we believe it implicitly—it naturally follows that there
is only one practical enclosed car on the market —the Paige. And we mean
just that.
To be practical for Winter driving, a motor must be able to do two things—start
instantly and run smoothly in /.ero weather. The requirements appear to be
simple but so far as we know, there is only one car that measures up to that
We will undertake to prove this statement by describing just three of the many new
features found in our enclosed models.
The Electrical
Gasoline Heater
No matter what the temperature may be, a
will start instantly, because an elec
trical heating attachment insures warm gaso
line in the carburetor.
Warm fuel, in turn, means positive, instantane
ous action when your foot is placed on the
starting p#xlal.
This attachment is simplicity itself—an ingen
ious application of the electrical cooking
utensil idea. But its results are marvelous.
It eliminates all necessity of churning the
motor and reduces recharging of batteries to
a minimum. It means midsummer starting
efficiency on the coldest night in February.
The Superheated
Superheating, as every’ engineer know*, m fIM
only c-nicient method of extracting energy •
from low-test gasoline. But it has remained
for Paige engineers to make an art of a familiar
T he Paige superheated manifold arts as a dry
ing process. It converts wet, baggy mixtures
ol \ apor into h : .,h!y combustible gasoline
energy. It extracts every last atom of power
from the gas and enables all of the fuel to
be utilized without waste.
In these days of notoriously low test R.asoline, thr
advantages of such a < ombustion system w ill be
manifest to everyone. Best of all it means a
smooth, even-running motor —the same high
Standard of performance the year round.

The Valve
Polishing Device
device injures 100% compression at all
tunes anti forever eliminates the necessity of
valve grinding. If you now ojK’rate a motor
car, you will at once appreciate the signifi
cance of this statement.
Carbon deposits and compression leaks will
destroy the efficiency of the best motor that
was ever built. But these thieves of powder
have been permanently banished so far as a
Paige is concerned. The polishing device
acts as an automatic burnisher. It not only
keeps the valve seats clean but accomplishes
its work more accurately and thoroughly than
the best of skilled mechanics.
And now—you can readily see why the new Paige
power plant becomes the most efficient of all
cold weather motors. The electric rearming
of fuel in the carburetor »mures immediate
combustion. Every atom of gasoline energy is
converted into poi/'cr. The compression is unt
form and constant.
Thus, a Paige not only starts under all weather
conditions, but it continues to run evenly,
smoothly and sweetly. It will act just as
effit tently in a February blizzard or an August
thunder shower.
Under the circumstances, we feel justified in
calling it the only practical enclosed motor
car. If you desire true winter comfort you
must have all of the advantages which we
have named. And remember, please, they arc
to be found in combination only on the Paige.
