Hugh Chalmers Says Present

"As I ex.tectod, the ]j"2 show Is far

Where the Afeo Gets its Rare Personality
IT takes a year and seven months to
build one Aleo.
A month alone is required to build
the rear axle. It is one piece?not built
up- but hammered out of a solid billet
of steel. Forged out by the largest drop
hammer in the world?one that weighs
250,000 pounds and cost $51,700.
Metals in the Aleo are rare. Brief
specifications do not reveal the superior
properties. These are metals that 76
years of locomotive building experience
have chosen as final.
Per pound in the raw no materials
cost as much as those in the Aleo.
Before these metals are turned into
parts for the car they receive the most
thorough heat treatment of any automo?
bile in America. Gigantic ovens register?
ing as high as 2000 degrees Fahrenheit
render every part in the Aleo where
strain occurs well nigh unbreakable.
Aleo parts might be bent, but broken?
almost never.
Large vats of oil complete the heat
treating processes. To fill one large vat
in the Aleo heat treating shops requires
$3000 worth of oil.
Tests are numerous. As in loco
motives.a motor car is strongest only in
its weakest part. Therefore, every single
part receives a superhuman test.
In the chemical laboratories of the
Aleo, metals are analyzed into infinitesi
builder? ?be of Aleo Motor
Twice winner of the race
mal particles. Every ounce must come
up to definite, delicate standards?on?
of the specification sheets would amaze
nine out of ten motor car manufacturers.
In the physics laboratories of the Aleo
are wonderful machines?Frankenstein
in their strength?which test springs,
axles, frames and other parts with thous?
ands and thousands of pounds of
Many automatic machines may be
found in the Aleo shops. Here also are
gigantic machines which perform a score
of operations in one. One machine bores
a small hole through a solid billet of
steel almost six feet long with a mathe?
matical accuracy of one one-thousandth
of an inch.
One may observe as well small tools
that perform a more delicate operation
than that of a surgeon.
And the men who run these machines
and build these parts into Aleo cars are
skilled New England workmen who love
their work and are proud in knowing that
they assist in building America's superior
motor car?the two time winner of the
race for the Vanderbilt cup, America's
motor classic.
Much of what has been said here may
be found in first hand evidence in the
Aleo Exhibit at the motor show. Examine
the Aleo chassis there. It is evidence
which will convince almost any man.
