lie Heart of Chicago
in 24 Hours
A Typical Chalmers Performance
At 12 noon, Monday, March 26,
a stock Chalmers seven-passenger
touring car with first and second
gears removed, was started north
on Michigan Boulevard through
At noon Tuesday, March 27,
the Chalmers was stopped at the
starting point. It had gone 586.8
miles through Chicago's densest
traffic. The motor had never been
stopped. Nothing but high gear
To prove conclusively Chalmers
flexibility on high gear, the low
and intermediate gears were re?
moved from the transmission.
The car was a standard Chalmers
seven-passenger touring model,
complete with standard body, top
and full equipment. The same
model you can buy today.
An average of slightly over 14
miles per gallon of gasoline was
attained, an excellent example of
586.8 miles, through the famous
congested Chicago ' loop" district,
is a wonderful feat. This perfor?
mance on high gear is even more
wonderful. It is without an equal.
It is an endorsement of the
motor. It proves Chalmers reli?
ability. It demonstrates Chalmers
cooling. It shows Chalmers flex?
ibility and perfect control. It is a
A condensed summary of the
signed certificate issued by the
Contest Board of the American
Automobile Association, under
whose supervision the test was
made, is reproduced below.
THIS IS TO CERTIFY that the Chalmers seven-passenger car above mentioned was a
fully equipped stock car. || was driven for 24 hours through Chicago traffic. Only high
gear was used. X?1?5 motor was never stopped during the run. The mileage obtained was
586.8 miles. The gasoline consumption was an average of slightly over 14 miles per gallon.

Some Other Chalmers Achievements
Chicago to New York
On J'inc 7, 1916, a Chalmers
stock car shattered all existing
road records between Chicago
and New York, making the run
of 1047 miles in 31 hours. The
'."?est previous time was made
by a Packard driven by E. C.
Patterson, whose time was 35
hours 43 minutes.
( tianl j Despair Mountain Climb
On October 6th, 1916, a
Chalmers captured the free-for
all event at the Wilkes-Barre
hill climb o:i Giant's Despair
mountain, w.r.ninR the $1,000
Hollenbeck Trophy and defeat?
ing four 12-cylinder cars, sev?

and highest-powered American
Wim Pike's Peak Climb
