Is Sufficient
The name Overland in itself fully justifies our tak
ing over the Nebraska territory controlled by the
Omaha Branch of the Willys-Overland, Inc., as an
addition to the territory in Iowa which has been
under our management for the last seven years.
But in addition to the inestimable
value of Overland good will and prestige
we have been guided by an intimate ac
quaintance with the factory personnel,
the factory equipment, and the factory
merchandising methods. This "inner ac
quaintance" has made us feel that Over
land Automobiles, backed by a con
scientious dealer organization, cannot
fail to bring new friends and greater
prestige to our owri organization.
We believe In Overland design,
Overland mechanism, Overland produc
tion, Overland management and Over
land ability to hold its own and keep
r faith with the people in time of war or in
In our judgment the Overland has
proven its worth from one end of this
country to the other. Its builders have
studied the people's needs and have bent
every energy to supply them. Today, the
Overland is sold in every quarter of the
globe, regardless of the financial ability
of those who buy and drive it. There are
people driving Overlands today, right in
your own territory, who could pay five
times the price asked for it.
The point is, Overland meets every
demand. It is so refined that it lacks
no feature of the highest priced cars.
We believe the Overland is strong
enough, durable enough, comfortable
enough, fast enough, handsome enough,
economical enough for anyone.
Our contract with the Overland is
as old as the car itself. Our faith in its
worth and great value to the people in
creases with its years. We have sold it
when people looked upon it as a luxury.
Today, Iowans and Nebraskans are buy
ing it as a Necessity.
In announcing here that, while re
taining our Iowa territory, we are taking
over the distribution In the territory of
the Overland branch in Nebraska, we
are emphasizing our belief in Overland
future, and further, that when you have
bought an Overland, you have done
everything possible in providing for your
Our main office is In Omaha In the
Overland building, Twentieth and Har
ney streets, where we shall keep a large
number of cars and a heavy stock of
parts to meet all demands of our terri
tory. An efficient corps of mechanics will
be employed to render first-class service
to owners. We appreciate the patronage
of Nebraskans and Iowans and shall be
glad to meet them in our place at all
But There Is Still Another Reason
It seemed quite the logical thing for
the Van Brunt Automobile Co. to assume
control of the Nebraska territory, adja Omaha, considering the fact that
the name Van Brunt has been connected
with the implement, carriage and auto
mobile business in this territory for the
past, thirty -years. People of this com
. munity should know us and our methods ,
by this time. We believe they do and
that our business career is above adverse
criticism. We are proud of our business
Thirty years ago H. H. Van Brunt
founded in Council Bluffs an implement
and carriage business, the forerunner of
the present Van Brunt Automobile Co.
Down through the years the same Ideals
have been strictly adhered to square
dealing truth in trade. i
The firm has kept pace with the
modern trend of business; with the com
ing of the automobile a new line of busi
ness was added. In 1910 the Van Brunt
Automobile Co. became the distributors
in fourteen counties of Iowa for the
Overland Car. Their connection with the
Overland Is just as old as the Overland
And now the Van Brunt Auto
mobile Co. has taken over, in addition to
its Iowa territory, the distribution in
the territory of -the Overland branch in
Nebraska. .
We come to Omaha, not as strang
ers, but as close neighbors whose busi
ness is expanding with the growing pop
ularity of the Overland Car. H. L. Van
Brunt will remain in Council Bluffs and
G. W. Van Brunt will assume charge of
the Omaha business.
