Vim Truck for Every
Use Has Been Provided
A rather impressive conception of
the various uses made of light motor
trucks by the business world of today
is brought out by a pamphlet printed
by the manufacturers of the Vim
The truck, as the manufacturers
think of it, is the chasis, and the
mere mention of a Vim truck doesn't
signify much about the body design.
There are twelve distinct body de
signs shown in the Vim catalogue
one for most every need.
To give an idea of the scope of
th truck manufactures line one
must include the taxicab, passenger
'bus, fire apparatus, undertaker's
hearse, salesman's delivery car, mail
wagon and several styles of open and
enclosed truck bodies.

If a man builds the best automobile made

success will grow and grow. So it is with the
Reo success. The Reo has no peer or near com
petitor until you go beyond the thousand-dollar
mark. Then the comparisons lie in favor of th'e
Reo because it represents an honest value, shorn
of all extravagances and unnecessary finery.
That is not to say that Reo models are in the
least incomplete. They are complete in every
detail. They have every necessary refinement
and necessity to extreme comfort.
We extend the heartiest of New Year's

in this connection we ask you to consider the
deep meaning of success. It means that we
have satisfied our customers. We have suc

bring greater success and many new Reo

fox Package Delivery ?
YOU know that no matter what you buy, or where you buy it whether
you take it home or have it sent you pay for having it sent home.
Sometimes it costs more than the article is worth to deliver it some
times a mere fraction of the value the charge depends altogether
on what the merchant knows about the cost of his delivery service.
The Retail Stores of this country deliver
four times as many packages as are handled
by all railroad and steamship lines put together.
447,1 16 merchants and trades

growers who have the delivery problem to
Whether by team and wagon, by second
hand or converted pleasure car, or by the
heavy motor-truck teaming, hauling and
package delivery are costing the people of
America twice as much as they should.
One great department store pays over
$4,000,000 a year for package delivery
and finds that $3,000,000 goes just to drive
the dead weight of its heavy trucks.
Another department store goes to the

dead weight and more without giving out
He must know that the heavy truck, with
its 4,000 or 5,000 lbs. dead weight cannot
be practical for light package delivery.
The problem of efficient package delivery
is the problem of handling a load of 1 ,000 lbs.
There is not a delivery car in the market that
will do this so efficiently as the VIM Delivery Car
the first car designed specifically for this service.
The VIM Delivery Car is produced by men who
know more about this package-delivery problem
than any other group of men in the country.
It has three years' record of most astonishing
efficiency. Its capacity 1,000 pounds delivering
its loads with a remarkable economy in gasoline,
a high all-'round efficiency easy to handle and
no time lost in fussing and "regulating."
Twenty Thousand Merchants have made
their VIM Delivery Car Pay
These men are buying on our deferred payment
plan. Their savings and the increased radius of
doing business with a VIM are paving for the car.
The same proposition is available to every live
merchant and business man in America.
