The Light Six
So far this year Studebaker has
built and sold more cars then dur
ing the entire year of 1921. And
1921, in spite of a general business
depression, v.Tas the biggest year in
Studebaker's 70 years' history.
This steady volume of business, plus
the savings resulting from Stude
baker's methods of complete manu
facture, reduces manufacturing and
selling costs. And it is a Studebaker
policy of long standing to share
these savings with the customer.
Hence, the new low prices.
m w titer
That's why yoj can buy a Stude
baker Light-Six today at it3 new
low price of $975 the lowest price
for which it has ever scld and the
lowest at which a car of such qual
ity was ever offered.
Only the price is reduced. Quality
is better than ever.
Step in and see the Light -Six. Let
us demonstrate its easy handling,
its lack of vibration, its great com
fort. Let us prove its endurance.
