The ad has a drawing of an aged couple and their daughter who has just graduated from college, standing outside of the antique buildings, behind their LaSalle as they are leaving. The ad claims that "The most astonishing thing about the new LaSalle V-8 - aside from its brillant performance - is its economy. If you figure the total cost of ownership - from the day you buy it to the day you trade it in - a LaSalle will probably cost no more than a car in the lower price ranges. LaSalle, you know, offers the economy of quality. Built by Cadillac, to the finest Cadillac standards, LaSalle has a longer life than you could expect from any car below it in price. LaSalle's performance is also unusually trouble-free. Being built to Cadillac precision standards, LaSalle does not reveal the usual wear and tear as the miles pile up. In fact, no car does a better job keeping out of the service station. Add to all this a remarkable economy of gasoline and oil, and you begin to see how easy it is to own a LaSalle. Have you looked at LaSalle? If not, we cordially invite you to do it today. One look and one ride - and you'll see why so many thousands are stepping up to this big, 125-horsepower V-8".

Stearns
1922 Stearns Sleeve Valve Motor Car - Black and white 9" x 12" ad that does not show any of their cars but has the information about "Why this is the first Stearns advertisement in three years". The ad explains that their 4-cylinder cars were so well known that advertising was not necessary but now that they have released a 6-cylinder Sleeve-Valve Engine, well, a little bit of advertisement couldn't hurt. They claim that this "is the first engine, in all the history of motor car construction, to operate entirely free from periodic vibration". The ad lists the models available and gives the prices such as the Roadster, 4 or 5 Passenger Touring for $2700, the 7 Passenger Touring for $2850, the Coupe for $3350, the Coupe Brougham for $3500 and the Sedan for $3700. The ad contains a footnote to Dealers that, due to an increase in production facilities, more cars will now be available. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Stevens-Duryea
1921 Stevens-Duryea - Black and white 9" x 12" ad that talks about "Craftsmanship - that builds for permanence". The ad text talks about how people demand more than two years from their new cars, sometimes driving them 250,000 miles. With this in mind the argument is made that the New England Craftsmen that are responsible for building these cars are the best people for the job. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

It mentions several of the engineering features built into these cars and lists the choices of batteries as being Exide, Waverely or National or you could step up, for an extra price, to an Iron Clad or an Edison Battery.
