257 Cars in One
We now have the Mid -Year Mitchell, completed
after the New York Show. Combining all the best
new ideas that were shown there. Designed by
experts who first compared 257 of the latest models,
to embody their best in one car.
Each great designer, every ea
on, contribute new ideas to can.
The Mitchell dciigneri contribute
At the New York Show in Jan
uary all the.e new ideal appear.
No one car has all of them. One
designer has excelled in one fea
ture, one in another, The ideal
car ot the season would he a com
posite car. And that's what we
offer in this new-model Mitchell.
The Best-Liked Ideas
Some new ideas were fizzles.
Some were immensely attractive.
On each one our experts secured
the motorists verdict.
They picked out the lines which
were voted the handsomest. They
chose the new features which men
and women liked best. Then they
completed this new model to come
out in the spring, and combine
every hit-minute feature in body
This never was done before.
This New Mtuhell, theirfote, it
show in itself. It shows all the
approved ideas. You will find it
by far the most interesting car
This is the only car which has
the Hate cantilever springs. They
offer ease of riding which was
never known before.
You will never believe what a
difference they make until we take
you over a stretch of rough road.
The car ridei ruts as a boat ridei
waves. This, to women, is the
most appealing feature found in
any car this year.
The Mitchell, we believe, holds the
record for aervlce. Six Mitchell cars that
we know of have averaged 164,372 miles
each. That means over 30 years of ordi
nary service. And all are running daily.
The Mitchell is distinguished as being
the choice of the ablest engineers. We have
a long list to send on request of great
engineers who huve chosen the Mitchell.
The Mitchell is long, roomy, impres
sive. Its wheelbaae is 127 inches. It has
a power tire pump, reversible headlights,
bull-bearing steering gear, gasoline
primer on instrument board, and many
other features whkh make this car a favor
ite with men.
