Drl. Kranason or John Lawrence, also pokt This Ad. Only Is For Automobile nd Only the Live Dealers Ones YOU'VE BEEN HOPING and praying for years for the kind of car you thought Rome big manufac turer ought to build, and that you knew you could ell. THAT IS TO SAY, a light touring car of about 23 horse power, made so well the maintenance cost would be as little or less than any other car on the market; one that would look the part; act the part; and yet sell in the neighborhood of $700. THAT WAS ABOUT THE PRICE you set wasn't it? YOU'VE ASKED for that kind of a car, insisting that it be one the owner wouldn't feel he ought to leave in the alley so the neighbors wouldn't see it I A CAR FOR THE KIND OF OWNER who wants his money's worth in looks as well as perform ance, and who doesn't care to be pointed out as one who bought the cheapest car. SUCH A BUYER, you've told us, would pay a few dollars more to have a car that was worth more than the difference. YOU'VE KNOWN that there were only two, or pos sibly three, concerns in the world that could make such a car at such a price. Millions of cap ital, and plants equipped with special automatic machines throughout for making every last part of the car, are necessary. AND DOUBTLESS IT HAS occurred to you that the reorganized Maxwell Motor Company was in an ideal position to produce such a car hav ing the capital, the plants, the organization and a clean slate That is to say, plants ready for the work and no old models or material in course of construction. AND, YOU'VE HEARD WHISPERINGS that that was the sensation the new Maxwell Motor Company had up its sleeve. WELL, WE HAVE and we've tried to keep the details from getting out because we didn't want to start a stampede of buyers until we were ready to supply the cars. But you can't send test cars all over the country as we had to do to prove up this product to our own satisfaction without starting trade gossip. And trade gossip goes fast and far. It isn't always accurate, but it goes just the same. WE ARE STILL DETERMINED to withhold all detailed specifications and the real price from the public until we are ready to deliver a few thou sand cars or at least until demonstrators are in the hands of our dealers. PAST EXPERIENCE with stampedes of the kind that will certainly ensue when the features of this car are generally known, teaches us that our plan is right. BUT MEANTIME and here's why we are publish ing this ad. to dealers the information is leak ing out; dealers are coming to Detroit wanting to contract. THAT'S ALL RIGHT but we want to start right with this proposition. It's going to be the big gest, greatest thing this organization has ever done and you know the men who comprise the Maxwell organization of designers, production, sales and advertising experts from Mr. Flan ders down have done the biggest things that have ever been done in this industry. WE WANT TO START RIGHT. We want to se lect the best dealer in each town the one who has the best standing locally, and the kind of fel low who will take hold of this product, not for a day, but for his whole future to go along and stay with us while we both make money and at the same time giving the buyer more for his money than he can possibly get elsewhere, ITS A QUANTITY PROPOSITION and when you see the car you'll say it is a permanent prop osition. THAT'S WHAT YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR that's what we've been aiming at in producing this car. Coupled with our $1,085 "35-4" and our $2,35050-6, here's the greatest line in the world and any maker who tries to compete, either in quality or price, will have to go some. NOW HERE'S WHAT INTERESTS YOU at this moment. We can't very well refuse to sign up with the other dealer who comes from your ter ritory. We appreciate his coming it shows he is on the alert. That's always a good sign. BUT HE MAY NOT BE THE BEST man for us to tie to how are we going to know unless you come and tell us? 80 WE DECIDED to tell all dealers that we are ready to contract for these 25's as well as the 35 and the rest of the line. WE'VE ARRANGED to have all our District Man agers in Detroit this week (April Mth to 19th). It will bti the first glimpse they've had at this 25 car themselves and you may imagine they nrc as eager to see and ride in it ws you are. W THE DISTRICT MANAGER of your territory will be here at the main office so you can get right down to business with him if you are on the ground. EVERY DEALER IN AMERICA KNOWS th heads of this organization. You all know Walter E. Flanders. He haa always given his buycra more and forced his competitors to give theirs more, than they wanted to. HE IT WAS WHO FIRST SAID, "Magneto In cluded, of course." He who first put a "fore door" body on a thousand dollar car after cut ting the price of the most popular and the great est $1,250 car to $1,000. It was Flanders who forced all othe makers to equip with demount able rims, by doing it first. He who said, "same electric starter as the Peerless," on a $2,350 car, when most $5,000 cars were still without starter. AND FLANDERS HAS DONE MORE for the dealer than any other. He it was who five years ago originated the "sliding scale of discounts" to stop the gouging of the little fellow the small dealer, who in the aggregate, disposes of 80 per cent of the product. He, who sent a copy of nis dealer's contract to every dealer in the United States to show that all were treated alike, while other makers were "dickering" with theirs. Yea, you know Flanders and you know why other dealers don't approve of his methods. Good rea son, isn't there? AND YOU KNOW KTcGUIRE if you don't happen to know him personally, you certainly know him by reputation. Wm. F. McGuire is known in trade circles as the former production manager of the Ford Motor Company the man who seemed to create cars by miraculous methods. Mr. McGuire as the "man behind" isn't so well known to dealers, but you've heard it said if there's one man in the industry who can produce cars in greater quantities than any other, it is McGuire. Come and meet him he'll show you the "25" himself. E. LE ROY PELLETIER you all know personally. You know his advertising, and its instantaneous results. "Roy's" advertising has sold more auto mobiles than that written by any other man. He knows you, knows your problems and knows your territory. Besides handling our national campaign, Mr. Pelletier will, furnish you with copy to run locally md, when occasion requires, he will be glad to write special copy to meet your local conditions. YOU'LL MEET TWO NEW FACES Walter M. Anthony, Comptroller, and C. A. Forster, Com mercial Manager, in charge of sales. MR. ANTHONY IS THE MAN you'll deal with at the financial end and you'll like him. He's a rare combination of keen business acumen and royal good fellowship. In short, he is a business man of breadth and character and poise and a saving sense of humor. You'll like Anthony and that makes business dealings a lot more pleasant. AND YOU'LL LIKE FORSTER. He comes from the Burroughs Adding Machine Company. We don't know it all yet in the automobile business, you know, and tho' you'll look with suspicion on a new man in this industry, that impression will be dispelled in the first five minutes you are with Forster and then you'll agree that he, as well as Anthony, "belongs" in this organization of specialists and experts. AND YOU'LL FIND in the other officers and in the factory, not scores, but hundreds of men you've known for years experts, specialists all, and you'll conclude that if the kind of car you've been wanting the kind you'd design and make yourself if you had the capital and the facilities -can be made, then this organization can make it to the Queen's taste and yours. THE CAR IS HERE ready to see and to ride in. De liveries in quantities will begin in June. You've been looking for this car for years come to De troit on the first train; see and try it out for your selfand tell us why you think you can sell more of them in your territory than any other dealer. NOW MULL THIS OVER: You must realize you who have watched the trend of things that this automobile business will gradually narrow down to a few big ones. It will be a contest between giants. TODAY, WHEN MARGINS OF PROFIT to the maker are so small that ninety per cent of all the buyer pays goes into actual automobile value and service; when, in other words, the profit per car is very small, only those makers who have the hnancial backing, the facilities and the experi ence necessary to produce cars in quantities, can survive. WE'LL TELL YOU FRANKLY that we are going to be very careful in selecting our representa tives, but once we've signed up with a dealer it will be our policy to stick to him as long as he is eighty per cent plus in other words, as long as he does anywhere near right by us and by his trade. 7 MOTOR CO naipa 'ohirn. .IBM Nenberri si iuhoii.
