r Another new -3400 r. p. m. Chalmers, 7 passengers,
f And the original 3400 r.p. m. Chalmers, doubly refined,
Picture a giant of rare strength and ability, and clothe
him in fine garments—and you have a mighty good
picture of this new Chalmers—
„ the 1917 3400 r. p. m. Chalmers with the 122-inch
wheelbase, double cowl body and French pleated
* upholstery. ;
- A good day’s work was done when they made it.
They took as a base the 1916 3400 r. p. m. Chalmers.
A car that had 1,000,000 miles of record behind it. And
a service mark of 99.21 percent perfect.
They; didn’t touch the 3400 r. p. m. power plant.
v, They stood pat there.
And on this magnificent chassis they laid a body that
surpasses the ordinary man’s power of expression.
To describe this gorgeous body is like trying to de-
scribe a Rocky Mountain sunset. It’s impossible.
You get an optic sensation that fills the mind with
a picture you’ll never forget.
.Lines—ladies, they’re so severely modem that at
first the Chalmers people thought they’d have to change
• them—too far ahead of the procession.
But Mr. Chalmers finally said to go ahead. And he
was right, because the first one that sailed up the avenue
Men driving cars actually drove up ahead in front to
see what car it was.
And performance—gentlemen! There’s never been
but one that could touch her—her 3400 r. p. m. sister.
She performs with a laugh. She has never refused me
a hill. She has never failed to answer my every whim.
3400 r. p. m. is the reason.
But what I like most about her is the perfectly
122-inch wheelbase,/ supreme beauty, $1280 Detroit
amazing performance, 115-inch wheelbase, $1090 Detroit
I’m going to tell about one little feature of the body,
and then you’ll have to come and find the rest out for
It’s about the upholstery. Now, there’s been reams
written and tons talked about upholstery. Some one
once measured it in inches. Another described it in
curlicue springs. Some one else reduced it to “real hair. ”
I don’t know the thickness of it—and care less; but
when I get in the tonneau and sit down I have a feeling
that I never want to get out.,
It fits the fat man as well as the thin man.
They’re long pleats—French pleats—(which say good-
by once and for all time to the “button and biscuit’*
She’s a real car, gentlemen, and a wonderful value—
$1280 Detroit. You put away in your wardrobe the
equivalent of four good suits of clothes, a couple of pairs
of ten-dollar shoes, aneba Knox hat when you lay down
the money for her. You save about $275.
Don’t let me forget to call attention to her smaller
the 1917 3400 r.p.m. Chalmers with the 115-inch
Because she’s a 3400 r. p. m.’r, great on the hill,
smooth in traffic, full of spunk any time any day.
She’s just like her 1916 predecessor Neither you nor
I could tell the difference. And you’re dead sure when
you buy her because her record is as clear-cut as a cameo
—1,000,000 miles of use with a service record of 99.21
Both cars are ready. If you haven’t seen them you’ve
missed a day’s treat. Better than going to the art gallery.
