DON'T overlook this matter of
power. It is important. You
wont an automobile that will
carry you through mud, sand and
snow, and do it easily. You want a
car that will climb hills, that will get
away quickly without laboring and
straining its every part
Not all cars can do these things,
but you know that the Maxwell can
because you have the proof.
When the Maxwell stock touring
enr set the World's Motor Non-Stop
Mileage Record a few weeks ago, it
encountered all sorts of unfavorable
conditions rain, mud and hills, over
country and city roads yet it cov
ered 500 miles per day, day after
day, for more than six weeks.
Power, plenty of power, unfailing
power, is absolutely essential to such
a wonderful performance as this.
Let us give you a booklet telling
all the details of this record breaking
Maxwell car. And let us tell you
about our partial payment plan, by
means of which you can make a cash
deposit and pay the balance while
you use the car. Give us the oppor
tunity and we'll prove our case.
