Light Weight SixBuilt By Men Who Know
It weighs 2,985 pounds, completely equipped on the scales. It runs sixteen miles per gallon of gasoline. It runs seven
hundred miles per gallon of oil. Owners average seven thousand miles per set of tires. It sells for $1,785, and' it pos
sesses every high-grade feature found on high-priced sixes. Speed, 3 to 55 miles per hour without shifting gears. Climbs
every hill between Chicago and Boston on high. Rides the bumps like a boat. Distinguished by the beauty of its stream-
line body design.
Which Light Weight Six Are YOU Going to Buy?
IF you pay more than fifteen hundred dollars for an automobile you are surely going to buy a six. Not many men
wha pay more than that in this year Nineteen-fourteeu will accept fours. You want a six. ' !; . .
Tlio question, then, is what six?
It must be a light six. You don't want a heavy one. You have learned that carrying around a lot of weight,a lotof
heavy forgings doesn't get you anything except needless expense. A great many manufacturers know that-you.nave '.
learned this. (That's why so many light weight sixes, selling at moderate prices, have come on the-market this seasons
You have a wide selection. Your only problemas which one to choose. -
Doubtless all the light weight sixes put out by -manu-facturers
of standing represent good value, but which"
will you choose just a light weight sis, or the light
weight six built by men who havo been building high
grade sixos for seven years? Men who know sixes if
any group of men in the world know sixes.
Will you buy a light weight six that is an after
thought, a modification or abbreviation of some larger
model, or will you buy a light weight six that is just
what its designers started out to build a perfectly
co-ordinated six, with nothing cut out of it and every
thing in it of finest quality. Will you buy
A New One? No'
You won't choose an untried six, when you can just us
. woll got one that has proved itself through a full sea
son's service in the hands of hundreds of owners. You
won't choose a six that has been rushed out to meet
competition, when you can just as well get one that
was carefully designed, by men who know, to meet a
market and fulfill its requirements. If you study all
the light weight sixes carefully, if you see how they
nro designed, if you consider their equipment, if you
examine their workmanship, if you measure the ex
perience of tho builders back of them, vou will choose
tho Chandler. This isn't an advertising boast, it's
just good common senso, based on what wo know about
all tho light sixes and what
