"THE SIX OF '16" IS
OUT BY MITCHELL!-:
Price Materially Cut, So that the
Announcement Makes Real
IS NOT IN BABY SIX CLASS
"Th six of )" at $1,230, Just an
nounced by tha Mitrhfrtl factor;- of
liaclne. la creating mora comment and
discussion In automobile circle than any
new model announced In recent years
This "six of '16" Is now belns; shown by
tha Mitchell Auto company of this city,
and the steady Hn of visitors looking
over the latest creation of J. W. Bate
pressag-e an even mora Insistent demand
for this new Mitchell six than (or the
light six of 1316, which was sold out be
fore tha last season had hardly got well
Tha striking; feature of this new model
tc the casual observer Is tha remaikabla
valua that Is aparent at a glance. While
this is a light six. It should In no way
be confused with tha average six-cylinder
cars In Its range. "Tha six of '14" Is
not a baby six It Is a real full-slsed car
a car of such site, beauty and complete
ness of equipment aa would have listed
at double the price two years ao. It Is
readily apparent this car has not been
built to meet a price. Tha manufacturing
facilities of tha big- Mitchell forty-five-
, acre plant, all Its financial resources and
tha well-known constructive genius of
Chief Engineer 3. V. Data, who has at
five different times In the last fourteen
years created a new class In automobile
design and value, are expressed lo tha
highest degree in this new Mitchell
model, "toe six of.'M."
Outside of the price 1 ,260 there is noth
ing to distinguish this car from those
listing up to $J,000. Tha Ut-lnoh wheel
base, the forty-two-horsepower motor,
th Bate Improved cantilever springs, tha
long, clean, classy boat lines and tha
commodious body dimensions with deep,
luxurious upholstering, tha richness of
tha finish and completeness of the equip
ment Indicate the thoroughness necessary
tc make possible this remarkable car at
the list price.
While tha long wheel base. ITS Inches,
tha large Mx4 wheels are all conducive,
to easy and comfortable riding qualities
light weight serves as a serious draw
hack to this Important feature. However,
aa a consequence of Mr. Bate's untiring
effort to bring about a logical equality
In these directly opposed principles) ha
designed and perfected the Bate Improved
cantilever spring and aa an evtdeno of
tha point of perfection Mr. Bat ha
reached In improving the cantilever
springs, rebound strap and snubbera or
hock absorber are absolutely unneces
sary and In riding qualities the claim I
made that this ear cannot be approached
by any seven-passenger touring car In
the world up to 6,000 pound In weight
Most Accessible Car.
After an examination of tha car, the
Llalm that this I tha most accessible ear
In the world seems well founded.
The "Bate Two-Unit Three-Point Sus
pension" construction I used as In all
former Mitchell Model designed by Mr.
Bate. This construction I such that
either complete unit can be removed!
from the car without removing the body
or disturbing any other part
The front and rear seat are mounted
on removable standard - and these
standards and all the floor board can
be quickly and easily removed, exposing
the entire mechanism under the body,
which Is ordinarily so Inaccessible.
The carburetor, accessibly located It
attached directly to tha cylinder casting,
the Intake manifold being cast inside tha
cylinder block. This arranrement Insures
a uniform temperature for the gases when
'entering the cylinders which Improve
carburetlon and Increases the mile per
gallon of fuel.
The equipment is complete down to the
last detail Including quick acting, two
piece, ventilating windshields, a positive
acting one-man top with quick acting
ride curtains, engine driven power tire
pump with long hose, and air gauge,
speedometer, oil Indicator, electrlo horn,

The Greatest Car Value
the World Has Ever Known
You are im pressed with its value at first sight.
Its equal has never before been offered by us or any one else.
This luxurious car is not a "Little Six"
cut down in size to meet a price. It is a real car with a power
ful, flexible, economical motor and long wheel base.
It possesses all that these features imply in beauty,
satisfaction, comfort and roominess and is the most accessible car built.
Illustrations cannot picture the real car from every
viewpoint nor convey the right conception of its beauty, size and power.
Words alone cannot describe the thrill of iti.
smooth action, its easy handling, its luxurious comfort.
