Chalmers Will Enchant You The peppery pick-up of this energetic car has put color and tang into popular-priced motoring that was never there before. There's delight in every revolution of her en gineand there are 3400 revolutions per minute every time the crankshaft attains its maximum speed, which is the highest ever developed in an American stock car. Her giad, gala going springs from the terrific speed of an engine that was Duilt, however, for much more than mere car speed. Great force unites with obedience. There are sparkle and response in this 3400 r. p. m. Chalmers tnat you'll look for in vain in most cars with high-speed engines. By checking the awful kick of her motor down to a point that corresponds to 60-mile-an-hour speed, ner engineers were able to give you instan taneous pick-up and 18 miles of fervent flight for every gallon of gas. You save $150 to $200 per year in gasoline bills and add many miles to the life of your tires by driving the 3400 r. p. m. Chalmers. Her riding comfort matches her economy of performance and both spring from the same causes. This is why: her heavy, hardened crankshaft is balanced to the weight of a hah; a perfect balance of power is required and delivered by each of her six cylinders; and finally all useless weight, pressure, and friction have been removed from all reciprocat ing parts and bearing surfaces. There is undreamed-of riding comfort in the even, pleasant stream of might that flows at any and every speed to her rear wheels. One rejuvenating jaunt with your foot on the accelerator of this ruly, spirited'ereature, and you'll know why she has cast her spell over 740 American cities. Until you know how it feels to release the" delicious rush of power from a 3400 r. p. m. engine, you'll never know the delight of real motoring. The performance of this engine gave me the suprise of my life and I expected a lot from her. She's off like a hare after every crossing stop with never a sign of effort or hint of fret. She slips from speed to speed like a dream-car. She hits trV hardest grade with the lightest heart. I know, because I've put her to every conceivable test. And what she'll do for me, shell do for you. Touring Car or Roadster, $1050 Detroit. Colors: Meteor blue, or Oriford maroon with gold stripe. -. " sr n.
