Before you place your order for an auto

the ELCAR i for the money.
The wheel baie it 115 inches, which
makct it a large, roomy car of fine appear
ance, and, with it excellent spring suspen
sion, a splendid driver and an easy rider
on any road, rough or smooth.
The motor is powerful, developing 34.7
II. P. at 1,800 R. P. M. though not a large
motor in size. It is, however, a modern
and up-to-date motor of the long stroke
and high speed type.
The electric starting and lighting system
is the Dyne to two-unit, with Willard stor
age battery and double-bulb head lights.
The Delco automatic sparlc advance ignition
is used, which is an installation that speaks
well of any car.
The ELCAR has a multiple dry disk
clutch, Ravbcslos on steel, so fine acting
that, together with the quietness and ease
with which the gears shift, contribute much
to the satisiaction and pleasure or driving.
The rear axle is full floating, with roller bearings nt each end
of the wheel hubs. The driving gears are strictly high grade
spiral bevel, such as go in the high priced cars.
The body styles must be seen to be appreciated. Small illus
