It is quiet and smooth running, with the latest improved method of carburetion and
ignition, and requires little attention.
The improved velvet-acTmg clutch is a delight to experienced motorists. Its
smooth engagement eliminates jerks and jumps in starting the car. Very little pres
sure is required, and gear shifting is a pleasure instead of a constant worry.
A heavy service differential of the four pinion type is an important feature of El
gin construction. It is the famous Brown-Lipe-Chapin bevel gear differential, run-,
ning on large annular ball bearings. . '
A special method of underslung, cantilever, rear spring suspension was origin
ated by Elgin engineers, and this construction is an exclusive Elgin feature.
All models are built upon a standard chassis with 118-inch wheelbase.
The same kind of high grade differential gears are used i nthe Elgin Six as are
giving satisfactory service in some of the highest priced, cars on the market.. Pinion
