RED CLOUD, NEBRASKA, MAY 120, 1JH5
NUMBER 'J 1
ANYONE CAN DRIVE AN OVERLAND
road at all
The electric control buttons on the dash
stop and light it. Nothing could he simpler. No
arrangement could be as convenient.
The long wheel base, large tires and
rear snrinifs insure comnlete comfort on the
times. TJie high tension magneto means dependability
under all conditions. The Overland is, in every sense,
an all-around family car. It was designed to make
driving and riding comfortable. In no other car can you
get so many comforts and conveniences unless you pay
a much higher price which is absolutely unnecessary.
