NEW OPEN MOTOR CARS,
I will show the.new'llne of Chandler open cars to this
territory as soon as they arrlvo. The three body types are:
Standard Touring 7 passongor.
"Dispatch" Speedster 4 pnssongor.-.:
Chummy Koadster 4 passenger. '
These cars all carry tho new high hood and radiator,
with broad cowl and wide deep doors. Many little details
of nicety have been added. The back curEain window Is
plate glass. The clear vision side curtains fit snugly and
OPEN WITH THE DOORS. There are DETACHABLE
rear quarter bow curtains. There are outside door han
dles like the present "Dispatch" carries, on. all models.
Best of all this new beauty and convenience are to be
sold at the snmo old price, no war prices or profits, but the
same price you paid last year. $1795 factory, for touring
and roadster and $1875 for the Dispatch.
Six years building and perfecting this One Car? 60,000
owners to testify to its goodness.
Como drive this car, test it anywhere at your conven
ience, with no salesman to bother you. I think you will
note several niceties and a smoothness and activity unus
ual in any stock car. Be your own judge.
