We Fixed the Price,
Then Built the Car
WHEN we started to build the Paige we determined that it should be a car
so etod as to be dominant in the $1000 field. We fixed the prices of our
models at from $900 to $1000 the variance being natural in view of the
different types of bodies.
Having determined our ideal and fixed these prices, and having brought our organ
ization together equipped to do things, we set about building just the best car that could
be built to sell at the price and leave a legitimate manufacturing profit, and we did this.
Now as time has gone along we have been able to effect certain reductions.
You are interested in what becomes of these savings.
We are building 3.500 cars this year. They are
all built on the one Paige chassis and with the one
Paige unit power plant. That means that we have
reached the point now where our quantity earns the
very stisiassi prices on those parts which it is ad
vantageous (or ua to buy and that the quantity fat
sufficient to permit of the lowest test in handling all
Ih awry tkrtmyk tht factory. It means, further, that
our selling costs have been divided. So, on quan
tity alone we have saved all that any manufacturer
can save, car for car, no matter how many cars he
guilds, because 3300 is a unit- it's a nuix imum in
figuring price reduction in automobile parts.
Now, havtnff made this saving, we have not for
saken the Paige ideal of building just the best car
that can be built and sold for the l'aigc price. We
haveclungto that ideal, we have not taken this
saving over to ourselves for added profit, wc have
turned right around and put it back into the car.
Study thecar and you can see it yourself. There's
the Disco Self-Starter for instance. Run through
the list of car that are using the Disco. See if
there's another anywhere near theJCaiae price.
Then there is the Deko Ignition. We could have
continued building with the ordinary magneto and
we would have been tip to standard, but we didn't
do it We took part of the saving and put it into
Delco ignition. There isn't another car selling for
less than $1600 that offers you Delco ignition.
We had a good clutch in the Paige last year good
as you find in most cars but we had made a saving
and we were going to put it hart into tht car and
naturally one of the first things that we improved
was the clutch. So we cut out the regular multiple
disc clutch and now vt arc builc.nr; v. ith a multiple
disc cork insert clutch. You won't' find this clutch .
in other cars at Paige prices. They haven't got it.
Why, we pay more royalty (or the piii ilrge of using
the multiple disc cork insert clutch than it costs to
build an ordinary multiple dic clutch or cone clutch.
We have enclosed our motor valves too. This
wasn't necessary. Nobody had complained because
they weren't enclosed, but it makes the car a tetter
car to have the valves enclosed. Kcepx; the dirt and
dust and grime and oil out of the motor, makes it
run smoother, makes it run quieter.
These things count for Paige owners.
All through the car. we have improved the Paige
just as far as the money will go, just as far as
anvioif.it in the uorld could improve il and still sell
it for from $900 to $1000.
See the Paige before you are led into a misstep by
the preposterous claims of some of the makers of
low-priced cars who talk in neutralities. And don't
forget this, that while they are featuring their wind
shields and tops, we state to you frankly that a top
and a windshield don't go with a Paige. If they did
we would have had to cut out some of these things
that are vital to the convenience and smooth-running
and durability of the Paige and we believe that you
would rather have these things in a car, then buy
your top and windshield, than you would to have
the top and windshield thrown in and not have
these things in your car.
We will sell you top and windshield at absolute
factory prices, which are just about half the prices
you are paying for them with most low-priced cars
which feature them as "regular equipment."

A pair of Woodworth Treads lasts about as long- as the bare "shoes," and sells for
about half as much. The tire thus protected lasts about three times as long as if run
bare, and all repairs are eliminated. That's how the OWNER saves, both in money and
in freedom from trouble.

TUDY all sides of an automobile its artistic
appeal, its mechanical construction, the service
back of it, the men who built it. Do this with
any car before you buy; especially do we invite
such careful analysis of the Marquette.
In the refinement of its exterior lines and the character of its
general appointment, the Marquette reaches point of elegance.
These, combined with the reasonableness of its price, make the
Marquette the car of Practical Luxury. And added to its supremacy
in these essentials is the fact that the Marquette is produced under
the immediate direction of the General Motors Company, giving it
not only the ample engineering and mechanical backing of this large insti
tution, but assuring thoroughly deoendable service to owners
Those handsome cars will be shown at tbe Omaha Auto
