light four-cylinder motor built In
America: this Is one of the re
sults of utilizing the European
type of high speed motor design.
It derelops greater brake horse
power than any other light four
cylinder car in this country and
yet ft weighs just a little over
2000 pounds, ready for the road.
The power plant turns over 2800
revolutions a minute and gives
a developed power of 30.5 h. p.,
from an S. A. E. rating of 15.6
h. p. The total piston displacement
is 134.2 cubic Inches, somewhat
larger than that of the average
European light car, but less than
any other American built four
cylinder car. I
Low Body
, The-roof of this new type car
Is only 1 5 feet 8 inches from the
groimd. yet the room inside the
bedy is greater than in any other
light, car now on th market. It
first a-nparanee is striking in thf
oxtrpme. A man of average
beitcht can ;taml alongside it at
the curb and rest his arms on the
top and look over It. But a six
footer can sit in it with all the
room t he wants. In this respect it
Is thoroughly American and bears
no relationship to Its diminutively
dimensioned European cousins.
Insider the - body 'is 45 inches
from 'floor to roof aad there Are
6 Inches between the top of the
seats and the roof. The seats are
approximately 12 inches from the
floor 'to the top of the cushions.

The front seat is 40 H inches

widths for these two seats, j

' E Perhaps one of the greatest
surprises this car has to offer,
outside of its performance ability,
is the roominess in the body. .-. .
And the; body! lines are aristo
cratic in. every way? A conspicuous
feature is the construction .of. the
sunvisor which is formed, by con
tinuing the root forward in a
graceful down swinging curve.
This is nobby tailoring for even
the best of cars and is a hallmark
of quality in this-- Overland

high and .narrow and is housed in
a deep, nickeled shell. The body
lines sweep gracefully back with
out any-break at the cowl giving j
an apearance which is intriguing
in the extreme.

tion, and are of the balloon type.
These are the smallest tires ever
used as stock equipment but the
tire makers are anticipating a
huge demand for this Overland
Whippet and dealers are stocking
these sizes at the present time.
It is the claim of the engineers
that this size of tire on the Whip
pet will result in "exceedingly long
tire 'service and forecasts of as
high as 20,000 miles to the set
have been made.
Fine Appointments
The interior appointments of
this car are tasty in every way.
The instrument board is of metal
with a Circassian walnut finish
on a gracefully designed panel.
The board carries the starting and
lighting switch, oil gauge, am
meter, speedometer and dash lamp.
A frosted glass dome light ad
dorns the rear ; compartment. Up
holstery is of 'a fine ribbed velour
of rich coloring and fine fabric.
The levers for lifting or dropping
the windows are nickeled.
The windows are unusually
wide and the windshield is of the
one-piece type which has come
into fashion among the finer types
of automobiles.

piston displacement of 134.2 in
ches. This is somewhat larger
than the average for the European
type motors but is smaller than
any other American built motor
of stock production. The increase
over the English and French di
mensions was made to give the
car certain performance features
in high gear which are not re
quired by European users. It is
said that this Whippet will climb
any hill that any of our best light
sixes will climb in high and its
comparative acceleration has al
ready been demonstrated.
The pistons are of cast iron but
are extremely light in weight as
are the connecting rods. The
crankshaft is short and heavier
than that used in any other four
cylinder car of equivalent dimen
sions, and weighs 27 pounds. It Is
balanced statically and dynamical
ly and eliminates whipping and
vibration to a degree never be-
rith a lot
fore achieved In a four-cylinder
The connecting rodpi are long
and designed to eliminate whip
ping and piston slaps it high car
speeds. j
The oiling system comes in for
special attention, tl is i the mod
ern full pressure system!. A drilled
crank shaft is offered :'4t the first
time in light car construction in
this motor. The whol'ij design of
the lubricating system follows the
practice set for our lirger cars,
oil being forced through the
crankshaft to the foeirings and
thrown off the main j bearings to
lubricate the cylinder walls and
valve mechanism.
- The oil reservoir is ' in the
pressed steel motor base and two
baffle plates ; keep the oil from
surging away from the pamp.
Cooling is by pump circulatory
system with over , 8000 sqaure
inches-of cooling area.
2 Four Wheel Brakes '
An Innovation In light car con
struction is7 found in the four
wheel brakes which are of the
type of design used on better than
96 per cent of the finest European
cars where all types of four wheel
brakes have been thoroughly test
ed and tried out. The brake
drums are 11 inches in diameter
giving a braking surface "greater
than on many larger cars.
Qverland engineers say that the
type of brakes used on the Whip
pet grow better and more effici
ent with use. The elaborate atten
tion, which has been paid to brak
ing equipment in this car has
come as a result of the perform
ance' capacity which, with its rapid
acceleration and its high speed
capacity requires a prompt acting
and highly efficient system of
. Unit System Power Plant
Motor, clutch and transmission
are -In one unit, the clutch being
of the single plate type, transmis
sion being the modern three for
ward speed, selective sliding con
struction with an extra long
change gear lever to facilitate' the
operation of the gear shift.
An encolsed propellor shaft is
used and the rear axle is of the
semi-floating type with the axle
members removable. It is carried
in a banjo type rear axle housing.
Starting and lighting
Auto-Lite system, two unit con
struction starting and lighting is
employed and an Auto-Lite igni
tion system is used. This is in line
with the use of this type of equip
ment throughout the entire pro
duction of Overland and Willjs
Knight cars.
Presages Radical Changes
The Overland Whippet is an in
novation. And it has all the ear
marks of being one of those de

the industry. It resembles nothing

Ago Ford Was Leading
' i " - - i " : 'r
the Automobile World...
Advertising usee! in newspapers 17 years ago show that at
this early stage of the automobile development Ford was
setting the pace for the other automobile manufacturers
Read These Two Advertisements
Which Were Used In 1909:
HERE are the newest lines, side
entrance to tonneau, effective
looking hood, in fact, everything
1 that a man or woman admires in
an automobile. The car is really
a Wanamaker production.
For a long time we have been
working with the Ford company to
have them make an up-to-date side
entrance car, fitted with the fam
ous 10 h. p. Ford motor, to sell at a
popular price. First they declared
it impossible, but now the cars are
here. Nowhere is there an equal
car, either in appearance or effi
ciency, at anything like the price."
John Wanamaker, New York N.Y.
big, showy
in body
YOU'VE seen the
cars pretentious
clattering noisily up a hill on low ,
gear like taking a freight eleva
tor to the sixteenth floor.; The idea ,
has gone out of date. Henry Ford
exploded it. He brought out cars
of ample size ; but built the bodies,
as well as other parts, light in
weight; and put in motors of ample
power. Now Ford cars are the
"Greyhounds of the road. They
take the hills on high gear. They"
are noiseless, vibrationless, easy to
run and inexpensive to operate
John Wanamaker, New York, N. Y.
The Ford car of today offers driving ease and certainty
of control, features which are characteristic of Ford cars.
