Madison "Six"
40 HORSEPOWER FOUR, FIVE AND SEVEN PASSEN­
GER, BANGING IN PRICE FROM
$1250 to $1375
The Madison car has been sold by us for over a, year and the
cars we have out have proveto that the matdrial used in the
Madison is of the first grade. The detailed specifications are
as good as any assembled car that can be purchased for the
price in our territory.
Remember that over half of the different makes of cars that
are sold in Bismarck and this territory are assembled and that
there are very few cars "manufacttired." W^ represent two
of the ^'manufactured" cars, namely, the Maxwell and Reo.
We believe that any automobile man will agree with us that
there are less than ten cars in America that are "manufactur­
ed" as completely as the Reo and Maxwell.
The point is in doubt whether or not a manufactured car is
better than an assembled car. The Madison motor is a Rutenbur
motor. This motor is used in many of the standard assembled
cars. The Rayfield carburetor, Stewart vacuum system, Remy
starting, lighting and ignition system are used by both the
"manufactured" and assembled cars. The judgement of a
purchaser is not to be criticized, should he choose either the as­
sembled or "manufactured" car as either automobile may be
good whether it is bought in parts and assembled or "manu­
factured" all under one roof.

REO THE "FIFTH"
FOUR CYLINDER THREE AND FIVE PASSENGER
PRICE $875
Reo the Fifth is the oldest modern automobile built today.
The stripped Chassis has been manufactured for eight succes­
sive seasons—in practically its present for—just refined and
improved in minor details from year to year (yes, month to
month.) The Reo Motor Car Company never manufactured a
"Season Model" they make them better any time their need is
apparent or when they learn how to build it more durable.
We believe that no other car can match a Reo in popularity
or durability. If you are going to purchase a car, we believe
you owe it to yourself to see the Reo models, compare them in
price, material, durability, etc., then we believe it will not take
a salesman to sell you, as Reos should sell themselves.
Present prices apply only to orders for immediate delivery.
The Reo has not risen in price where many other cars have not
only risen one time but two or three times. However, we can­
not guarantee that the Reo will not increase in price therefore
we suggest that you place your order for immediate delivery.
NEW REO "SIX"
FOUR AND SEVEN PASSENGER
PRICE $1250
The new R$D "Six" is beginning to rival the great Reo the
Fifth in popularity. It will be a strong rival when there are
as many in the hands of owners as there are. Reo the Fifth.
The Reo the Fifth has a tremendous advantage over the "Six"
—more than 100,000 owners are singing its praises daily and
hourly, while less than 20,000 as yet know the Reo "Six" at
first hand. Conditions are such that it makes it uncertain
that the last season's price of $1250 f. o. b. Lansing on this im­
proved model Reo "Six" will continue. We cannot guarantee
how long this wonderful car will be sold at so low a price as
$1250 wihen cars of very inferior grade, size and quality are
sold at this price or higher.
REO TRUCKS
THREE-QUARTER TON TRUCKS
$1,000
TWO-TON TRUCKS
$1650
Reb Trucks, we believe, are in the same class as Reo Auto­
mobiles. In other words, the Reo Truck is superior to many
other trucks costing more money, for several reasons, namely
were you to buy a Reo Truck from us we carry in stock either
for the Three-quarter ton or the Two-ton Chassis, a complete
line of repair parts, from cylinder blocks to the rear end are in
stock and we doubt very much whether there is another truck
sold in Western North Dakota, that a distributor can make
this statement.
The Reo truck is not an experiment owing to the fact
that, it has the wonderful R40 the Fifth engine in it with
the same axle, of course, geared lower from the regular axle
shafts. A chain drive is provided on the Two-ton Chassis,
therefore warranting a standard made truck with standard'
parts at a standard price.
