dl Coach of Beauty
dldorns This Silent Chalmers
THE fine craftsmanship of coach building turned itself loose
in this new appearing Chalmers. You observe a high
front line and a low rear line, which a well known artist
has said is the way a car should look.
You find nothing severe, however, about this Chalmers. It
has a new elegance, a new grace; and yet a quiet reserve distill'
guishes the oar from others.
Particularly .' . this appeal to you after you've been seated
and touch youru-ot to the accelerator.
The silent How of power, the notable harmony, the case of
the engine engage you. '
And again you pay a compliment to Hot Spot and Ram's
horn, which tackle the low grade gas of the day and make it
Thus the beauty which the eye sees is enhanced by the
beauty of action of its master engine; and you, too, say with so
many others that Chalmers surely is one of the few great cars
of the world.
