Here's Why It Climbs
This Cartercar transmission-without gears-clutch-or
universal joints shows very clearly why the
Cartercar will easily climb hills and run through
mud and sand where it would be foolish to drive the
ordinary car. The Cartercar will climb a 50 grade.
You see here the simplest form of transmission that can possibly
be designed. Jmt compare this with the ordinary complicated
gear drive and you 11 understand why the Cartercar is o much
more reliable.
And this means
Perfect Service for You!
The transmission makes it possible for you to drive the
Cartercar over any kind of roads and in any weather. You
go when you feel like it and not when the roads will let you.
Unlimited Number of Speed
Instead of the three forward and one reverse of the ear
car you have an indefinite number of speeds. These being
controlled with a single lever make the Cartercar the
easiest to operate under all conditions.
The Simplest Car Made!
The useless features are entirely eliminated. There- is
nothing about the Cartercar to .cause trouble. One owner
wrote in that he didn't believe he was getting all the fun
coming to him, because all he had to do was to keep hold
of the steering wheel.
One-half Tire Expense!
Another advantage of the friction drive is the elimination
of jerks and jars. This means easy riding of course but of
more importance, it means on an average about one-half the
usual cost for tires and repairs.
Three Systems of Brakes.
Supplementing the easy control the unlimited speeds
you also have the extra advantage of three independentsys
tems of brakes. These will hold the car on any hill. Think
of this feature in a car for your family. ',f
Ideal for Ladies to Drive!
There is nothing to confuse or worry. Any lady can drive
a Cartercar with perfect safety and enjoyment. You will not
hesitate in allowing your wife or daughter to drive this car.

tages and you will realize that here is the practical man 's car.
