Two Essex touring cars, carrying U. S. Mail,
each one making the entire trip between San
Francisco and New York, have set the time
records for their respective directions across
the American continent.
And thus comes to Essex another distinc-
tion for reliability and endurance.
Except for one airplane record, these two
Essex cars have crossed the continent in less
time than was ever recorded by any travelling
machine The fastest time possible between
San Francisco and New York by train is
slightly less than the time taken by the light
weight economical Essex. But in the case of
the railroad train, many different locomotives
are used, each pulling the train only a few
hundred miles.
From Cheyenne to Omaha the route taken
by the Essex was 43 miles longer than the
550 mile route of the famous Overland Limited
yet the Essex time was but one hour longer
than the express train time.

From the days of the Prairie Schooner, the

of the motor car, blazed the way to mechanical

Young came to this country with her
husband shortly after their marriage.
After a brief period spent in New

almost half a century. Mrs. De Young

East. It was previously understood
that Allenby would give up that com-



The speeds at which they traveled were
not so unusual, for another Essex stock car
had on a speedway track gone 3037 miles in
50 hours. But in the transcontinental runs,
some 350 cities and towns had to be crossed.
Crowded traffic imposed its obstacles to con-
sistent going. Mountain ranges in the East
and West with grades such as the average
driver never encounters, called for the utmost
of hill climbing ability.
Few will ever motor all the way across
America and therefore cannot know the
extreme varieties of conditions encountered.
But let each reader apply to his consideration
of what Essex has done, every experience he
has ever met in his own driving. It will give
some appreciation of Essex reliability.

Light Weight Now
Establishes Reliability

How gradual have men come to a realiza-
tion that a light weight car can also offer
reliance and performance.
Essex has led the way for that was its
purpose from the very first. Economy is of
growing importance. Men want to save in
fuel and in first costs. But they want no
sacrifice in performance and they demand
unquestioned reliability.
Essex offered itself to the public without
claim. Now more than 40,000 owners know
and praise its worth.
Owner cars that had been driven upwards
of 25,000 miles were used in the recent nation
wide Essex week to establish reliability, eco-
nomy, speed and hill climbing records.
To Essex owners the winning of the trans-
continental records is not a surprise. But
those who do not know Essex performance
and reliability must regard that these two
trips across the continent are as important in
marking mechanical advancement as any
similar event in the history of the motor car.
