That should tell the entire story a bat
tery made by the Willard company, and one
all rubber that will last for years and give out
powerful current for the entire time, should
be all that is needed to be said- Remember,
there are no parts to be' eaten by the acid, no
chance for shorting in the battery, for all the
casings, both the cells and the entire battery
are pure hardened rubber.
Price of Ford size, which many other
cars use, is on ly $33.15.
The Anco "Dry Storage Battery" is a
wonderful battery as well, and especially for
the winter use, as it cannot freeze, and is
equally effective in the warmer seasons. Ask
Our repair department is just now much
busier than formerly and what work you will
be needing done, please get it so we can have
it done and remember we do the best work,
in time that you may have the car when you
