The New Ford Cars
On August 1st, the Ford Motor com
pany began its fiscal year of I0III17
with un announcement of sharp reduc
tions in the prices of Ford cars, the fol
lowing new prices being placed in ef
fect: Runabout $1(1(1.711, touring car -H".7
These new prices bring the pleasure
land profit of motoring within the reach
of added millions.
This price announcement was follow-1
led by the introduction of the new mod
els embodying mnrherT changes in the
"familiar lines of Ford design. The hood

are sweeping crown fenders both front
and rear. The radiator is larger, nnd
with the new enclosed fun construction
has a greater cooling efficiency. The
new cars arc finished in black with
nickel trimmings, and are equipped
with non-skid tires on tiie rear wheels.
The Ford enclosed cars Sedan, Cou
pelet, Town Oar represent the same
attractive changes in design, equip
ment and construction that have been
made in the open models. In the Sedan,
I we have also included several refine-:
Intents in interior appointments. There
is the new tolded plait upholstery on
both front und rear seats, while both
rear side windows, as well as the win
dow in the rear of the -dy, are finish
ed with attractive black and white silk
shade curtains in harmony with the
color scheme of the upholstery.

through the ease of control and the
reliability of service which gives the
driver confidence in her driving skill

the prices of Ford cars there has been

The past year has seen strenuous

their good judgment, for the stress and

Tecord has fallen before the Saxon
''Six." In speed, in power, in hill
climbing, in acceleration and in econo

in its fields. It has set a puce too hot
for all other cars. 'Beginning with the
New York motor show, a steady stream
of orders for Saxon "Sixes" has poured
in. When the month of January closed
a record , had been hung up orders
for 40S"i Saxon "Sixes" having been
recorded. And this in the fu'e of tho
fact that the winter months generally
are dull months.
Still there was no let up. F.very

who had doubted the early promise of
the Saxon "Six" were capitulating to
the nroof of its performance and tho
month of February closed with another j

March, with a shipment of close to
3,000 cars, established another another
record and there is no sign of let up.

Let the Maxwell "Answer" for Itself
That's the way we like to handle
prospective buyers. Nothing suits
us better than to have them put the
Maxwell through the hardest tests,
compare it with other cars make
it stand on its own merits.
When this is done, the buyer is
made to appreciate the remarkable
value we are offering.
We say remarkable value and
that is just what it is. When you
think of a completely equipped, high
grade automobile being sold for $685
you must admit that it is a remark
In fact, there is no other car that
You get appearance, comfort, . en
durance, reliability, easy riding, and
absolute completeness. There is
nothing to buy extra.
And so you can readily understand
why we are glad, in fact, really anx
ious to have the Maxwell compared
and inspected so carefully. We know
what the verdict of the buyer will be.
We know that when he realizes
how the Maxwell is built what it
will do how complete it is he will
want it regardless of price. He will
want it because it answers exactly
his every requirement.
We're glad to show you anytime.
