-',f ot the new Willys-Knight Six
.nrenty" marks th fruition of
i ears , and years - of nlannin g by
President John N. Willys and the
engineers of Winys-Overland, Inc.
? Ever "' since the Knight sleere
Tilye - engine was introduced, to
Ataerlcaas, Willys-Overlami's one
great , ambition has been to build
at moderate priced slz-eylinder
iatoroobile that would establish a
new standard in the industry. The
immediate ; success of the new
''Seventy" following its initial ap
pearance at the New York show In
January is eloquent testimony to
ifce accomplishment. of this desire
py , 1ts creators and manufactur
ers. , C " , i . -
The WiUyS'Knight Six "70" fs
essentially a performing ear. That
was the purpose In its design and
construction, plus 'the fact! that
Willys-OTcrland was able to build
a -high quality automobile, com
bining comfort and long wear witfc
a ,sleve-ralTe engine that would
Bell at a moderate- price.
. ; JSngineetfng tests on the hew
car ! at Cove Mountain, Md., has
proTed that the perrormanee of
the new' ''SQrenty" is surpassed by
no 'other American-built car of
corresponding price or type, and
these teSta Included . acceleration,
economy and hill climbing. In a
2500-mile trip into Canada, two
of; tho new "Seventies averaged
18 miles to the gallon of gasoline,
while a recent trip through a New
Tork f snow storm ot 218 miles,
established a gasoline mileage
mark of IS miles to the gallon.
'In performance, the new "70"
Was thoroughly tested from every
taecnanlcfif angle for months pre
ceding 'its introduction. Experi
enced drivers took these new
sleefe-valvo sixes' through gruel
ling tests to determine its ability
to stand the punishment of en-
gineeting tests. Accurate charts
were kept of the "76a perform
anee. On Core Mountain, & "70"
carrying 1057 pounds of. load
started at the bottom of this tor
tuous grade at a speed of 30 miles
an hour and rounded the top, at
26 miles, despite the sharp turns
on the climb and the continually
-1 TO determine the speed and hill
climbing possibilities of this ; car,
a lope driver took off from stand
ing start at the. foot of the moun
tain and dashed oref the top at
37. miles an hour.
' In acceleration tests alone, the
record charts showed that the new
"70" accelerates from 0 to 25
miles an hour In 7.6 seconds; to
35 miles an hour in 9.7 seconds,'
and ! to S9 miles an hour In 25
seconds. ' Despite the fact that the
new sleeve-valve Bix has a small
piston displacement, with a bore
of only 2 15-16 inches, and a 4
inch stroke, the car develops 53
horsepower and , is capable of 65
miles an hour.
.The climax, then, of Willys-Ov-erlaad
plans ' in building the new
"Seventy" 'comes in the fact that,
with a small engine displacement,
the -new car develops a steadily
increasing power delivery up to
its maximum speed. The new car
is exceeded In engine' torfcae by' no
American-built motor car engine
ot today. : The advent of the tew
"70" WiUys-Knight six gives the
Willys-Overland two sleeve-valve
sixes an prerland six and an
Overland four, which is considered
the greatest market coverage of
any present automobile manufac

"I am . an' optimist with regard1
to the relief of city congestion. It
seems probable that we are now
at the peak of this difficulty. All
over the country new boulevards

ing pushed forward in cities which
have had the same down town

"A strengthening factor In the
motor business Is the rapid growth
in foreign demand. Exports
amounted to 550,000 vehicles, in
1925, an Increase ot 4t over the
year before. Within three years
this trade will reach 1,000.000
cars and trucks annually.
, "From the earliest, days of the
automobile business there have al
ways been casual Observers who
wondered how so many motor ve
hicles could be sold. .To those
well informed on the industry and
on human nature the answer is
simple. People want , t( travel.
.They must travel in their business
and they want to travel for Tecrea
tlon. Motor transport is a major
.industry supplying this demand.

The moment we tegah to demonstrate this
great Hupmobile Six, success was assured.
Ride in it drive it and you'll know, why.
Particularly if you are used toTiigher priced
six cylinder performance, you will realize
that nere at last, is a car which brings the
finest six performance down from thet
realm of high cost
HereS the same, or better, ix cylinder
smoothness at all speeds; and the same, or .,
better acceleration that yoiiv find in the
costliest sixes. , v
You'll be proud of its beauty, its cbmibrt
and the fact that it has all the tsoundpayins
investment value for which Hupmobile
has always been noted. ;
