LeBARON CONVERTIBLE ROADSTER The LINCOLN A LINCOLN OWNER in California has driven his car well over 150,000 miles, chiefly over mountain and desert. A 1925 Lincoln has traveled 200,000 miles. . . . These are not solitary examples of the Lincoln's endurance. Staunchness, dependability evoke the loyalty of owners everywhere, even though they may never put their cars to supreme tests.... From the laying of the frame to the tailoring of upholstery, the Lincoln is soundly and beautifully constructed. And this, so true of Lincolns in the past, is even more characteristic of today's Lincoln. The new V-12 cylinder engine, developing 150 horsepower, Lincoln engineers deem unsurpassed by any they have thus far designed. Air plane-type bearings, here first used in motor car engines, will withstand excessive tempera tures as high as 750 degrees. Other achievements include an improved cooling system, aluminum cylinder heads, and a single-plate clutch, which at a touch fairly animates the car. Two wheelbases-standard and custom-built body types. From $3200, at Detroit. PRESS OF JUDD & DETWEILER,INC. WASHINGTON, D. C.
