The "Jackson" has proven Its worth under every condition and practical test. It has ful
filled expectations in the past it will not disappoint in the future. From every point of view It is
the best car that can be built for the money, and represents to the buyer more value for his outlay.
The "Jackson" has always been a car of individual design, graceful lines, classy and luxurious.
Built under competent personal Inspection, entirely In our own factory, Its reliability established
by seven years of satisfactory service. -
The 1910 "Jackson" retains all the distinctive features embodied in previous models, which
have served to make and maintain Its prestige: Overhead Cam Shaft, Valves inclined at 45 de
grees on opposite sides of cylinder heads. Self-contained Oiling System, Clutches all run in oil,
Tbree-Speed Selective Transmissions with ball bearings for both Shafts. All cars are equipped with
Splltdorf Magneto, Schebler Carburetor and Thermo-Syph6n water circulation. Greater reliability
cannot be found in any car, even at a much higher price.
FAR IN THE LEAD
The facts of the great 300 mile automobile race on
the Indianapolis Motor Speedway last August, are fam
iliar history. In this race for the Wheeler & Schebler
trophy, the most valuable prize ever offered in a similar
contest, a "Jackson" stock chassis was' far in the lead
when the race was stopped, at the completion of 235
miles. The "Jnckson" "showed the way" to many cars
of greater rated po'wer and much higher price, and, dup
ing the run made 100 miles in 96 minutes.
But, we don't build "racers"; simply safe,
reliable, economical and servicable cars.
UNIT "POWER PLANT". "Jackson" Models "30," "40" and "50" are designed with Unit
Power Plant. This meahs that the Motor, Fly Wheel and Transmission are all encased in one
"housing." Keeps in the oil, keeps out the dirt.
All "Jackson" Cars are hung on full Elliptic Springs, front and rear. Frame is dropped two
Inches in the rear with a corresponding' drop In Ihe front axles. This allows for ample Spring Ac
tion. The car is carried close to the ground, while the actual axle road clearance has been mater
With full Elliptic Springs, front and rear, the "Jackson" covers rough roads at high speed,
with less jolting and consequent strain on the chassis pleasant for the rider economical for the
owner. I ,

Ha cam Into the salesroom with the air
of a man who had the price and said: "I
want to buy an automobile."
"What grade of car have you In mind?"
the sales manager asked.
"Well, either black or red." he replied.
"Of course you can have any fuusn of
body or color you please," said the man
ager. "Have xoo made up your mind as
to power and cost?"
"Oh, I'm not particular . about that, so
long as the machine suits me."

ager. "I've got something there that might
Interest you. Now here," opening the hood.

"Does she do all right?"
"Walt and see." I
The sales manager took a look at the
peed lever, saw that It was set at neutral
and remarked: "She's been standing since
morning, but I guess she's held her com
ajreaaiun In some of the cylinders."
. He touched a small lever and the motor
began to bum. lie watched the machine
with an expression of admiration and
asked: -"How s that?"
"No noise?" said the prospective buyer.
"Not a bit," replied the sales manager,
"except the click of the air valve, and you
wouldn't hear that If the hood was closed.
Absolutely silent muffler." '
"No blue smoke blowing out?" the man
"Perfect mechanical lubrication," said
the salesman; "all you have to do Is to
keep oil In your lubricating tank."
Then the salesman sounded the chime.
"Bounds like the beginning of a hymn,"
observed the wouldbe buyer.
"But what you want to know about,"
the salesman went on, "Is construction.
Now, these cylinders are bored with abso
lute accuracy, after being cast of the fin

perfection, .the connecting rods I'll show

The salesman told him he would dem

the city, on the country roads, at hill
climbing and running through sand and
named the price.
"Now whaddye think of that proposition
for a swell car?" said the sales manager.
"Well, It seems to be all rlirht, all
right," replied the man, "but It's Just this
way: Down where I come from there
are maybe a dozen automobiles now and
the fellers that, own them are the kingpins
of the place. I've the money now and I
want to be In It with them I mean to be

the machine out of the shed. When It Is
straightened around they open the cover
of the engine and monkey with all the
contraptions inside. After they have done
this for awhile they knock off and go to

Although several manufacturers haye
made announcements of their 1910 models
as early as last spring and summer, it Is
known that a number of them have "some
thing up their sleeves" that they are de
liberately holding back until show tim.
When these announcements were made, the
Impression gained considerable headway
that few changes were to be found In. the
majority of the cars, but a careful ex

Although th general public hear com

greater than ever before. When one con
siders the business men and farmers who
are concerned about the motor truck, it
ould seem that the Interest In them must
ultimately be even more extensive than in

motor trucks now being placed on the

and fewer freakish features. A complete

There is actually more value in the Ford Model "T" than in any other car at several hundred dollars more money.
Think It Over Here's the Model "T" Ford 1 four-cylinder, twenty-horse-power, five passenger, comfortable,
durable, practical touring car, complete with all the equipment, that costs from $150 to $300 additional in most other
cars and all this for, not $3,000 or $2,000 or one and a half thousand, at any of which a man would get his money's worth,
but for $1,000 f. o. b. Council Bluffs complete. No extras.
A $5000 Car will take you to your office in the morning or to the theater or social function in the evening. It will
carry you from one business engagement to another during the day and at night or when the cares of business are laid
aside, you call upon the car to provide pleasure for the family. But this Ford car will do all this just as satisfactorily
as any high priced car and more so than some.
To Avoid Arguments let's agree that some of the trimmings found on the high priced propositions are left off the
Ford. They are. But the difference in price will pay for a pile of trimmings, and the trimmings don't make one whit
better automobile. It isn't fuss and feathers that is needed to make the car you buy satisfactory; it's just plain auto
mobile, and if you get that for $1,000 and no more of it for double, why pay the extra?
The Model "T" Ford includes a magneto that's essential
to the satisfactory operation of a car, so it's built in and a part
of the engine, not an added accessory at a hundred or so more
dollars. It has a long, comfortable wheel base, it is not a dinky
runabout with tonneau crowded on behind. It's a four-cylinder
car, is shaft driven,, employs unit construction and three
point suspension, and is made of Vanadium steel. All in all
it would be a whopping big value atUouble the price.
Then Look at What Equipment is included. Experience
has, taught us that most buyers want a toji with other cars
that's an extra, they want a windshield, that's extra; a speed
ometer is a satisfaction, and that's extra; they want a stronger
light, and gas lamps are extra; and by the time they have bought all these things, the price, which is already higher than
the Ford, has been jumped another hundred or eo plus the magneto. There is nothing extra to buy for a Ford; these
things are all included.
After All, the Final Test of Value is what it will do. This is the proof of Ford value. It will go anywhere over any
kind of road, or lack of a road, more days or more years than the average car at a considerably higher price. It has
good appearance, speed and power, as well as hill climbing ability and good and bad roads negotiability. Repair bills
are 6mall and maintainance costs light. It is easily handled, easily kept up and always ready. It's a practical, every
day car for the man who wants a car.
High Priced Cars Render a peculiar service, for which Ihey must be given credit. They pull a lot of money out of
the safety vaults and put it into circulation. That's good. But there are a lot 'of us so fixed that most of our cash
already finds plenty of channels by which it returns to circulation. The Ford Model "T" costs little to buy and little
to maintain. The man on an average income can afford the purchase price and the up-keep cost.
The New York-Seattle Race was won by a Model "T" Fcrd against a field of .competition, none of which sold for
less than five times the Ford price. This winning car has traveled back overland, thus finishing a double transconti
nental. This car weighed less than oe-fifth the weight of its lightest competitor, a fact, by the way, largely respon
sible for its winning as it is also responsible for the low cost of maintainance for which a Ford car is noted.
