Outlook GratirylB;
This year promises to be the greatest

! Peerless Closed Caro
Closed cars that bear the name Peerless
have ever been notable among the finest
coaches built.
This season's models are no exception,
in fact in many respects surpass previous
Peerless attainment.
The coach bodies ' Coup.e - Sedan
and Sedan-Limousine-1 are Peerless built by
workmen who have made coach buildmgr an
art many of whom worked on the first
Peerless Limousine that set the standard
by. which the fine Close.d Cars of that day
were judged.
The most distinctive advantage offered in
any motor car today two distinctly separate
power ranges gives the Peerless owner a
contrasting performance that is especially de
sirable in Closed Cars.
