Simplex Cars have always been built in small quan?
tities but of the highest quality. It is not the aim of this
concern to produce a world beating proposition in point
of sales, but in point of efficiency. To that extent the
best known and wealthiest people in the United Stales
have been attracted and are numbered among our
clientele, and it is the object to continue to attract this
class of patronage.
Exclusiveness in Simplex body and chassis design is
further augmented this coming season by a completeness
in equipment which includes a wonderful electric self
starting and lighting system.
The only exhibition of these cars is now open at
the salesrooms ?240 West 59th Street (near Columbus
Circle) ?until I0:30 o'clock each evening, closing on
