As motor car dealers, we have staked our future on it, -The values make this car It makes other cars seem, incomplete. The" rnan ;who knows what we. know is bound to choose this car. Please come and see "the hundred ways in which Mitchells ire distinct. i Why It Dominates Vouhear.th'e Mitchell everywhere dis- cussed. The sale doubles every year. The" factory now covers .45 acres, yet there never are Mitchells enough. Let as show you why. There are 31 feafures which nearly ,all cars ociit. Things like a power tire dashboard engine primer, re- versible faeadliehts, ball-bearing steer- rnj fear. There is saperlative luxury.. The makers this year added 24 per cent to the cost of finish, upholstery and beauty. Thi Mitchell is by far the bandiomeat car in its class. There are handles (or entering, a light in the touneiu, a locked compart- ment (or valuables. There is plaited npholsltiy of rare-grade leather, and cushion springs, There are cantilever rear inches long the car rides like an aeroplajje.' Lifetime Endurance 'Every important part (n Mitchells has 100 per over-strength. That is twice the wul margin ol safely. There orersiio parts. There are over'440 parU built of toughened steel. There are driving parts of Chrome-Vanadium. springs which have never been broken.. We know of tivo Mitchell cars Ibat have already been nin over miles 40 years of ordinary service. So this over-strength', in all probability, means a lifetime TJicse eitra values will cost on this year's Hitchelljontput. Just for extra ftalures, added beauty and over- beyond most like-class cars. Exclusive Styles Then there are eight new-style bodies, all exclusive to the Mitchell. All are designed by Mitchell, artists and built in Mitchell ihops. newlinc, Mitchell So known at-, (ntclidn.

He built and equipped this model plant to build ihis one type economically.' He has spent years of effort' and mil- lions of dollars lo cut the fnctory cost in two. In an ordinary factory, cars like these would be impossible at the Mitchell prices. Two Styles. The Mitchell line includes two sizes and eight body styles.
