The Inviting Chalmers "Thirty-Six1
Inviting because it simply appears ^><><l and right. Some houses are that way? the ones you know are light, without knowing tust why. The wide dooi un ites you to step in. the tleep cushions to sit down, the big steering wheel to drive. |ust keep your seat? don't get out in the street again. The control pi this i iai is i entered on the cowled dash. Push a button and the Chalmers cranks itself. Chalmers a i r p i ?? s s u i e starter does il?best startet made because simplest, most economical, quickest acting, most reliable undei all con? ditions, Chalmers was the first car tohavc a dependable starter. Chalmers "Thirty-Six" gave a trade name to the ye,n IQI2. That year goes down in automobile history as ' Sell-Starter ycai*. Chalmers cars set fashions. |ust move a levei and tin- carburetor is adjusted. Turn a switch and the electric lights ari: on. The levers and pedals and wheel are jusl where you want them. In fact, all tin controls" of the Chalmers are right to your hand?most of them artistically grouped on the stylishly cowled dash. And. by the way, that's another big automobile im provemcnt the Chalmers had first?the cowled dash. Compare this one feature with the same on other cars ?see if the Chalmers isn't better done. Kims are demountable. Tires may be inflated from ihr compressed air tank no pumping. Others ask you to pay extra for this feature. In view <>( all these good points, a Chahhi i " rhirty-Six" is particularly in? viting because ol its price?only S1950 (f. 11. b.
