Would Build a Much
Higher Priced Car
If the parts used'in Vthe building of an En
'fjfer Six-50 .Were-, thrown into a heap, it
would he possible to produce any of several
cars that 4 are priced much higher.
-You, will find in a number of cars they use
the Continental type motor and , they are
priced quite a little higher than is the price of
theEnger Six-50. . It is customary to compare
, other engines as against the Contiiiental and in
looking oyer the Enger you will find that the
parts '. are ' absolutely standard and are manu
factured by a responsible and reputable com- r
pany. You will also 'find if you compare the
more . Tital' parts of the construction, that we
have .used the same quality of .workmanship and ',
material that themariufactnrers of the higher
priced' cars are using: but we have lowered the .
price ; very materially. )
We.bullt the Entfer Six-50 to meet the
requirements of the man who wants maxi
mum service and comfort at a minimum
cost. ..The . Enger Six-50 "is not a trade
proposition. We built the car and then
set the price. Some manufacturers inflate
their prices in order, that their dealer may
make an extravagant price for your old car
in trading. You can be the best judge of
this' when ybu compare the Enger Six-50
in detail with any other car you haVe been
considering, regardless of the price.
We do not ask you to buy the Enger because'
, it is built by reputable engineers, neither do we
... wait you to buy the Enger car because it is x
called Enger; but we ask you to look it over and
7 J1 And by jfc because you get the most car
for your money. Personally I do not think there
, ii a. car,' on the market that gives you more for
the money than does the Enger Six 50.
We have the cars to deliver. "You do not
have to wait when you buy an Enger.
Come and see us. Take a ride in the En
ger Six-50 and get our terms and prices.
