Spassenger car ran for 44 days and nights without stopping the And in the 44 days nonstop the Maxwell covered at an average speed of 25 miles per f But have up to realized fijjt sijrrificance of that perftwmancef Do you know that no other motor car in thd world has ever ci approached that performance In a did you take this test seriously wbrn you heard ofjt Or did you set it down as a selling stunt to give the publicity man something to talk about Its worth your while to read and to study the conditions under which that test was You know that the American Automobile Association the 1s the official arbiter of every automobile test and But perhaps you didnt know that when a maker places his product under supervision he must do absolutely as told and abide by the decisions of the Thats why there are so few Official Records This Maxwell nonstop test was official from start to Therein lies its value to It proves absolutely the quality of the very Maxwell you For verily this was a stock First the inspectors disassembled the motor to see that no special bearingmetal or other parts had been Every other unit was as critically Then the car was reassembled under their own As we had much at stake and the test was made in winter November 23 to January 5 we asked permission to take certain little precautions against acci dental Sounds doesnt it r But they refused permission to do any such For would not permit a rubber cover over the wasnt They refused to let us tape the ignition wire are not taped on J the Maxwells we of course it wasnt Neither would they let us use a spiral coiled pipe in place of the usual straight one from tank to carburetor to guard against a breakage from tha unremitting isnt Nor to use a special high priced foreign make of spark run was made on the same spark plugs with which all Maxwells are So rigid were the we were unable to carry a spare tire on the wasnt A telegram to headquarters in New York finally brought a special permit to carry a spare It isnt stock f It isnt stock That was the laconic reply of those inspectors to every last suggestion that called for anything but the precise condition of the stock model Maxwell that any customer can buy from any one of 3000 dealers We are glad the rules were so strict and so rigidly Any other car that ever attempts to equal that record must do it under official comply with the same And it will have to go For Maxwell set the standard when it performed this wonderful Maxwell complied with those made Every drop of gasoline and oil and water was measured out and poured in by the inspectors They would not even let our man pour it in Every four hours the car had to report at the official station for And it had to be there on the And every minute there was an inspector beside the driver on the front two more men in the One got out only to let another and night for 44 days and nights There was one technical It is interesting to know the Dead of driving another car appeared in the road In his effort to avoid a collision the Maxwell driver stalled his At least the observers thought it stopped and so The car did not so its momentum again started tht motor if it had indeed stalled when the clutch was let The contest board exonerated our driver on grounds that his action was neces sary to aave That shows you how rigid were the conscientiously applied by the You who have owned and driven motor who know how small a thing may clog a carburetor or a feed pipe short a spark or stall a realize what a wonderfully well made car this must be to go through that test under those miles without The exact amount of of of water used the tire tire tire changes the distance and the routes are matters of official attested under oath and guaranteed by the By the the average was
