It's different than any other car made m Amer
ica. It has the same style of engine that the British
tanks carried in the war. :
Instead of clashing poppet-valves, raised by
blows from steel cams and slapped back by strong
springs, the Willys-Knight motor has SLIDING
valves. Two cylinder sleeves, one within the other,
glide silently up and down between the piston and
cylinder wall . Long ports, or openings, in these
sleeves register with each other and with cylinder
ports at proper intervals, forming large and DI
RECT passages for intake and exhaust ga-es..
It is MORE FLEXIBLE. Uniform compression
in all cylinders, and at all speeds, makes it possible
to throttl" down to a walking pace on high gear.
'Gear shifting is reduced to a minimum.
It REQUIRES NO ADJUSTMENTS. There is
no grinding of valves in the Knight motor-no weak
ening of springs' to require re-timing. It has fewer
oarts, and these parts are MECHANICALLY COR
RECT. It is QUIET IN OPERATION-and stays so.
There is no clashing of metal against metal.
Besides the Willys-Knight, we also have ' on
hand, an OVERLAND delivery car and a few of
the "90" touring cars, for immediate delivery. But
we won't guarantee that they will be here very long."
You'll have to hurry to get one.

that expect to get their share of this

this year. As the general road building

this year by the state and federal offi
